How can you live by dying? Letting go of control is one key to a loving relationship. This requires trust in oneself and trust in others. If we dont let go of our need to control we dont experience the joy found in trusting ourselves to another and being completely accepted by that other. In the end we will lose what we are trying to control and hold onto we can only have by letting go! (Insert graphic 1106-0086)
360 Holy Hours were kept before the Blessed Sacrament this past week. Day and night Jesus dwells in the Blessed Sacrament because of His infinite love for you! "Behold, I am with you always until the end of the world." Because, "I have loved you with an everlasting love, so I am constant in my affection for you." (Mt 28:20 Jer 31:3) How about choosing an hour in your family's name? This way, you could take turns with family or friends. Please call Judy Soltis at 330-212-0926 if you are interested.

St. Augustine Church will soon be into the 2013 Mass Intention Book. Due to the high volume of Mass Intention requests in 2012, we are asking you to consider grouping your intentions together; example The Smith family instead of listing each family member individually. We will do our best to schedule you as close to the requested date as possible. A specific date is not guaranteed. All masses are scheduled as they come in. Mass offerings are still $10.00 each.
