FROM THE RELIGIOUS EDUCATION OFFICE
Terms from the Catechism of the Catholic Church
VENERATION (OF SAINTS): Showing devotion and respect to Mary, the Apostles, and the martyrs, who were viewed as faithful witnesses to faith in Jesus Christ. Later, veneration was given to those who led a life of prayer and self-denial in giving witness to Christ, whose virtues were recognized and publicly proclaimed in their canonization as saints. Such veneration is often extended to the relics or remains of those recognized as saints; indeed, to many sacred objects and images. Veneration must be clearly distinguished from adoration and worship, which are due to God alone.
VENIAL SIN: Sin which does not destroy the divine life in the soul, as does mortal sin, though it diminishes and wounds it. Venial sin is the failure to observe necessary moderation, in lesser matters of the moral law, or in grave matters acting without full knowledge or complete consent.
VIATICUM: The Eucharist received by a dying person. It is the spiritual food for one's "passing over" to the Father from this world. With Penance and the Anointing of the Sick, the reception of Holy Communion as Viaticum constitute the "last sacraments" of the Christian.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Joe Evaristo, Alison Grant, and Mike Dugger continue their journey toward full initiation into the life of Christ and the Church. After celebrating the Rite of Election with hundreds of other catechumens from around the Cleveland Diocese, these three ‘elect’ will participate in three parish celebrations known as Scrutinies. Through these rites, the elect and the parish community together focus on conversion, and scrutinize their lives in light of the Gospel. The Scrutinies coincide with the 3rd, 4th and 5th Sunday's of Lent, and we ask God for healing and forgiveness of the elect. Alison, Joe and Mike are not meant to travel alone, so continue to support them with your good example, prayer and encouragement.
Lenten Meditation Booklets
Stay With Us, Lord: Daily Scriptural Reflections for Lent is a wonderful booklet filled with prayers and reflections to help us deepen our relationship with Jesus this Lent. It is written by renowned author and speaker Fr. Robert Barron. Copies of can be found in the vestibule for $1.50.

HOMEWARD BOUND MINISTRY MONTHLY PRAYER SERVICE
Is there someone in your life who may want to return to the Catholic Church? Do you have a loved one who no longer comes to church? Homeward Bound Ministry is a group of parishioners who prays for and helps those seeking to return. God leads everyone to union with Him and His Church and we need to ask God to grace those who are estranged from the Church for whatever reason.
In this spirit, the Homeward Bound Ministry invites you to gather and pray the Rosary the 4th Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. in the church’s Blessed Sacrament chapel. The prayer session will only be a half hour, but with many, we feel our prayers will be heard. We know that “we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.”
If you would like the Homeward Bound team members to pray for any of your loved ones to return home, please write their names on the cards in the gallery, and put it in the mailbox.
for more information please contact Ron, 440-942-2887 or DREe-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
FRESH Faith 2014

Our next full session, as well as our last session is on Sunday, April 13, after the 5:00PM Mass.
PSR CLASSES HAVE STARTED! Children whose registration forms were received after September 1 will be placed in classes the following week and be required to pay a late fee. Forms are in the church Gallery and can be returned to the Parish Office.
Children in grades 1-8 who attend public schools are expected to participate in PSR classes. Classes are held weekly on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:15pm through the school year in the parish's school building. If you have questions regarding SJM PSR,please contact the Religious Education Office at 946-3287 or email@example.com.
Coming into the Church the RCIA way
All are welcome to find out more about our faith. Please call Charlie Hunt, 946-3287, as meeting times vary.
RCIA/Evangelization—Familiar with Christ
As each invited person becomes familiar with the parish community, he or she will become familiar with Christ as well. The person you have invited will be more connected to Christ than before you extended your invitation. You may be gently encouraging some to return to the practice of their faith after many years. They come back because you care and ask. You may be inviting others to embrace faith for the first time. In fact, some people may have lived in your neighborhood for many years and yet have never been invited to your parish for any reason. They come because you care and you ask. Practicing these seven steps will make you parish a WELCOME place. In addition, your own spirituality will be more authentic because you have chosen to put it into action by learning how to effectively ask and really invite someone else to share your faith (From Effectively ASK and really INIVITE, PNCEA).
Those involved in PSR (teachers), CYO (Coaches), Youth, Teen and SMM-SJM volunteering for four or more hours a month, or more than once a month with children at our parish and school, need to participate in the program.
