From Fr. Charlie's Desk:

Every year in the diocese of Cleveland each parish sponsors a Mission society to make a Mission Appeal in support of their religious order. This year the appeal will be made by the sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet at both St. Agnes and St. Mary. We are happy to have Sr. Doreen Glynn speak at all our Masses this weekend. The sisters minister to those who live in poverty in Peru.
