Eucharistic Adoration is on Thursdays from 3:00pm-5:00pm.              

Divine Mercy Sunday:  To honor this Solemnity, we will have the Divine Mercy Chaplet and Benediction beginning shortly after the 11am Mass, today.  I encourage you to remain for this devotion.  It will take about fifteen minutes.              

May Crowning:  Our grade school children will be having May crowning, Thursday, May 8 at 7pm.  May Crowning is a wonderful way to honor our Blessed Mother.  She is our model of humility and faithfulness.  I invite you to join the children in honoring our Blessed Mother.              

Major Award Raffle Tickets:  The first Early Bird drawing will be on Mother’s Day, May 11.  So, please turn in your sold tickets.                                  

Festival News!!!  We are looking forward to a great summer festival this year!  The festival will be July 11, 12 and 13.  Mark your calendars for the big event!  We will have entertainment on all three days.  Friday night will be Saffire Express, Saturday night will be the Rusty Griswold’s, and Sunday night will be the Elder Glee Club and the Elder Steel Drum Band.  Chicken dinners will be served on Saturday and Sunday from 5-7pm.  We will have lots of other delicious food and good beer.  I think the festival is really going to be great this year.  So, I hope you’ll plan now to come.  You should have received your festival chances.  If not, or if you want more chances call the rectory at 921-0328.  Please buy/sell as many chances as you can.  If you would like to help at the festival, please call Theresa Murphy at 921-0266 or email at festival@stlawrenceparish.org.

  • Catholic Relief Services Collection:  Our parish will take up the Catholic Relief Services Collection on the weekend of May 3/4.  This collection supports six Catholic agencies that touch more than 100 million lives around the world.  The funds from this collection provide food to the hungry and support to displaced refugees.  Thank you for your support! 

  • CISE 2014 Spring Party:  Please join us for the CISE 2014 Spring Party, with live music by Swampthang, to benefit Catholic Inner-city Schools Education Fund.  The evening will include delicious hors d’oeuvres, open bar, silent auction, raffle and dancing.  New this year will be the Best of Cincinnati Cuisine Raffle valued at $1300 and an all-electronic Silent Auction.  You will be able to bid on items using your own Smartphone or a device provided to you at the event.  The event takes place on Friday, May 9, 2014 from 6:30-11:30pm at The Carnegie Center of Columbia Tusculum, 3738 Eastern Avenue.  Cost: $75 per person reserved and $85 at the door.  Attire: Jeans/Casual.  Doors open at 6:30pm.  Stay late to dance the night away!  Band starts at 8:30 pm.  Silent auction closes at 10:30pm.  To purchase event or raffle tickets visit our website at www.cisefund.org or call 421-3131 x2751.

  • IMPORTANT!  Please join us for this year’s Rosary Rally.  On Sunday, May 18, at 1:30pm we will celebrate the 9th annual Rosary Rally held at Elder High School’s football stadium (the Pit).  Annually, roughly two thousand attendees come to this meaningful event.  This year we expect a larger crowd than ever before.  The celebration starts with a procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament as the center of our devotion.  The recitation of the Holy Rosary, together with worship songs and prayers, make this gathering a memorable event.  We hope to have many fellow priests in our Archdiocese join in revering the Blessed Sacrament and the recitation of the Holy Rosary.  In case of bad weather, we will move indoors to the basketball gymnasium. 

  • Lay Ministry Formation Opportunities:  Grow in faith, knowledge, and skills in The Athenaeum of Ohio’s Lay Pastoral Ministry Program.  This program has both degreed and non-degreed options that equip men and women to evangelize and catechize more effectively in their families, communities and workplace.  Graduates serve as catechists, advocates for life, permanent deacons, staff members in parishes and non-profit agencies and volunteers in a variety of roles and settings.  Information meetings will be held at the main campus, Saturday, May 10 at 10:30am and Thursday, May 15 at 7:00pm in Room 114.  Classes are available on Saturdays and weeknight evenings that fit into a busy adult schedule.  For more information you can call 231-1200 to schedule a personal appointment.
