Cards for our Priests for Father's Day or Any Day

The Serran in the Cleveland Diocese designed and had printed cards that could be sent to priests on Father's Day recognizing their work and thanking them for all they do for us. The priests that receive the cards will be remembered in a Mass once a month for a year.

Personally, these cards can be purchased for priests not just for Father's Day, but for any day one would wish to thank priests. Giving these cards to our priests is also a way of responding to the increasing plea of Pope Benedict XVI to support our priests. Beyond that, it is an expression of our love for Christ through his representatives that embraced the noble call to priesthood.

An offering of $5.00 per card will go a long way. All proceeds will be used for all efforts to recruit candidates for the priesthood, deaconate and religious life. Way to go!

They are available at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine, 21281 Chardon Road in Euclid. All requests for cards can be sent to J.W. Schaut, 3219 Somerset Drive, Shaker heights, Ohio 44122. They may be ordered on-line from Bill Bengele (another Serran) at All checks be made payable to: Serra District #85 Foundation.
