St. Barbara Church, 1505 Denison Avenue in Cleveland, held their beautiful reopening ceremony and Mass today, celebrated under the leadership of their new pastor, Rev. Fr. Joseph Hilinski, who formerly served as a priest with the St. James community. The church was packed to the walls by the faithful.
Lakewood's own St. James Church is reportedly scheduled to reopen to the public with a Mass on July 25th at 7 p.m..

Here's hoping that the St. James Mass will also be well attended.
Back to the banjo.
