Welcome Friends in Christ!
Dear Parishioners and Prospective Parishioners,
Welcome to our parish website. We hope the information on these pages is helpful to you in finding your place at St. Joan of Arc and that your spiritual needs may be fulfilled. Our parish is very active in many ways both spiritual and material. As well as having opportunities for spiritual growth for all ages, we also encourage the participation of the whole family in worship and growth. Our parish is deeply involved in the practice of Stewardship. This means that we believe that all our time, talents and treasures are truly gifts from God and are given to us to be shared to build up God's Kingdom here on earth. So, if you are interested in a parish where people are involved, you have come to the right place. We heartily welcome you and hope that if there is anything we can do for you that you will not hesitate to call.

Stewardship Thought for February 19 2017,
The Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time
“But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” Matthew 5:44
Love your enemies, easier said than done, no doubt. But, remember, the foundation of stewardship is prayer.
When we are in close communication with God, it opens our heart and it turns our attention away from “me” and moves it towards God and others. It allows us to have a little more empathy for “our enemy”. When we pray for others, even “our enemies”, maybe it softens their hearts as well.

Eucharistic Adoration, Benediction and
Stations of the Cross during Lent
On Fridays during Lent, beginning after the Noon Mass, the Blessed Sacrament will be exposed in the church for Eucharistic Adoration from 1:00 to 6:30 pm. This will be followed by Benediction and then Stations of the Cross.
We will pray the Stations of the Cross every Friday (except Good Friday) during Lent at 7:00 pm in the Church. There will be no Stations of the Cross Service on Good Friday. Servers are needed for these weekly services so if anyone can help, please call the parish office at (330)477-6796.
The dates for these services are 3/3, 3/10, 3/17, 3/24, 3/31, and 4/7. Please take a little time out of your day to enjoy the Fish Fry on these dates also (and help the school too).
