Alleluia! Another Year!
179 Faithful Years!
"After Paul and Barnabas had proclaimed the good news to that city...they returned to Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch...Then they traveled through Pisidia and reached Pamphylia. After proclaiming the word at Perga they went down to Attalia and sailed to Antioch." (Acts of the Apostles 14:21-25).
And the good news they proclaimed eventually arrived here in Liverpool Center, today Valley City, in the 1820s.
"On a June day in 1840..." so the story goes...about 30 Catholics met in Strongsville with Bishop Purcell of Cincinnati. That June day was June 8. The following day, June 9th, the first Mass was celebrated for them in the home of the Lawling Family. It marked the founding of what would become St. Martin of Tours Parish. Fr. O'Dwyer, pastor of the Cleveland area, celebrated the Mass and Bishop Purcell preached.
For 179 Years the Catholic Community has worshiped the Lord and loved one another, as He commanded. Celebrate Founder's Day with us this June 9th. An ice cream social will follow the 5pm and 10:30am Masses; and coffee & donuts after the 8am Mass. Praise to God that the Spirit given at Pentecost has been among us in sacramental ways for yet another year. Alleluia!
Peace be with you!
