Local Heros Recognized - 01/16/19
On Wednesday, January 16, 2019 the City of Maple Heights recognized two young men who on the evening of December 23, 2018, took action and saved the lives of two local residents. You can read about these two young gentlemen in the link below. Fr. Emilian and several parishoners were present during this wonderful event and reception. State and local officials were there as well as the two young men, their families, and the family they saved. Fr. Emilian offered two prayers for the men, families, First Responders, and for the City of Maple Heights. He also offered the men and the family a very nice donation to reward them for their selfless act of heroism. We are very proud of these young men, and our city of Maple Heights for honoring them!
During Great Lent each Wednesday evening following Pre-Sanctified Liturgy, please join us for Bible Study and a Pot-Luck Lenten Meal. This has been a good and positive learning experience! Everyone is welcome! Consider staying and bringing a Lenten Dish to share.
