Dear St. John and St. Rose Parishioners,
Your parishes really want to stay connected with you!
Please provide updated phone numbers and email addresses by calling the church office, 419-222-5521 or emailing drhinock@wcoil.com.

Also, Father Ross misses everyone's smiling faces at Mass! He'd like to follow the model of several other pastors and have pictures of his parishioners taped onto the back of the pews. Please take a picture of yourself/your family and email the office-- drhinock@wcoil.com. The staff doesn't know everyone by face, so please include the names of all those pictures as well as which parish you are a member. Please share this request with all the parishioners you know! Thank you.
