    Hi Fr. Terry,
    Thank you for the update and also sharing the Masses with us over the last couple weeks. It means a lot to stay connected. Looking forward to the day we can all be reunited.

    Thank you for keeping us up to date and for keeping us in your prayers. You will remain in my daily prayers. Looking forward to the day when we can all come together again in prayer.

      Thank you, Kathy. I envision that day to be the most triumphant celebration we have known as the Church! Take good care in these holiest of days ahead.

    Thank you Father Terry,
    It was good to hear from you and thank you for the updates and your prayers. Health and blessings to you as well. I am missing mass in person and the St. Noel Church community, but looking forward to celebrating together again soon. Have a very Blessed Holy Week and I will pray for our entire St. Noel Family.

    So happy to have seen your face this am!
    Am watching Palm Sunday mass from the Basilica of … Immaculate Conception in DC now on Spectrum channel 18, EWTN.
    Heads up to our friend Mary Artino for putting me onto this,
    Also, answered my door this am to find my 2 neighbor little girls delivering a palm to me; their mom drove them to St Francis where they were available outside!
    I wish you good health and patience to get thru this. We’ll see each other soon, I hope.

      Thank you, Susan. What a gift technology has been in every age, and with each advancement since the radio, the Church has always promoted their use for the good of the world and the Church’s mission. I keep thinking how different things would be (how much more isolated we’d all feel) if this happened 20, even 10, years ago! The very means which caused great isolation in recent years is now connecting us to one another better than ever before! Peace and prayers this Holy Week and always!

    Hi Father Terry! Miss you so much so it was great to see you virtually! We all know you are doing the best you can for us and we all appreciate it! I pray for you daily that God will guide you in all the decisions you have to make each day and through this Holy week. Can’t wait until this is all behind us and we meet as a church family again! Have a blessed week Father!

      Linda, thank you so much! I can’t wait for that day either! What a triumphant gathering that will be! None of us comes to know Easter Sunday without Good Friday – it’s just a little more drawn out this year. Peace and continued prayers!

    Well-stated! We have been asked to refrain from receiving the Eucharist; we can certainly do without palms. That put things into great perspective for me. I’m thankful to have you as the pastor of my/our parish. Thank you for all you have done to keep us “together” over the past several weeks. You remain in my prayers.

    Fr. Terry, thank you so much for the update. It was so good to see you. It is really difficult being away from St. Noel’s during this Holy Week and Easter but, it will be wonderful to celebrate again in the future with the St. Noel family. You are doing a great job and as I said before, you are meant to be with us at St. Noel’s. You got this!
    Miss you and know you are in my prayers.

    Thank you so much for the updates and for keeping us connected. I’m sure this is equally as hard for you as it is for all of us to not be together during this holy time…I’m sure you moreso. Thank you for all that you’re doing and I’m so grateful that you are with us at St. Noel….nothing is coincidental, it is all by design….you are supposed to be with us! That brings me such comfort. God bless.

    Dear Father Terry: I wanted to thank you for the beautiful service yesterday for my mom’s funeral. I am in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and could not attend but did see the service online.
    I was participating as I do in church and will look forward to seeing you in person next time I come to Cleveland. I will also be sending a donation to your church.

    My only son was killed in an airplane accident in 1998. I will email a petition for a Mass. My son was a good boy and catholic.

    God Bless you and all your parishoners.
    Stay Safe
