Dear Parishioners and friends of Saint Rocco’s:
After having received the consolation of the sacraments, our dear Fr. Pasquale Rosca passed away this evening. Funeral arrangements will be forth coming after planning with the superiors of the Order and the Rosca family. May the Lord grant eternal rest to Father.
With the sad passing of our beloved Fr. Pat, the parish has re-
ceived to date $6,635.00 in donations toward our capital cam-
paign: “St. Rocco Strong”, toward the goal of dedicating a class-
room in Father’s honor in the new school building. A classroom
dedication is $50,000.00 which leaves us with $43,365.00 to
raise. For many years Fr. Pat taught religion in our parish school;
worked with the altar servers and the CYO. How appropriate to
have a classroom dedicated to his honor and service here at St.
Rocco. To make a donation, simply place your offering in an
envelope and drop it in the collection marked for “Fr. Pat Memo-
rial” OR contact the Parish Office. May Fr. Pat and all the souls
of the faithful departed, rest in peace.

Heavenly Father, Your Son Jesus established Your Church as a welcoming and loving home for all who seek You.
Here on the West side of Cleveland, You inspired our forbearers to build the church of Saint Rocco to be that place of prayer and community for all Your children.
Help us to maintain that legacy by strengthening our unity, and increasing our faith, hope and love as we rebuild our hall, gym and school.
We offer prayers of gratitude for the sacrifices and hard work of previous generations of parishioners who for over one hundred years have helped make our parish what it is today. May the Holy Spirit inspire us to be as generous with our blessings as former generations were with theirs.
Bless the benevolent benefactors who donate to our Capital Campaign with a deepening devotion to prayer, a growing commitment to service, and an increasing level of generosity as we work toward preserving a strong foundation for the future.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. AMEN.
Saint Rocco, Pray for us that we may be preserved from all diseases of body and soul.

Don’t forget the parish / school has two bins in the parking lot for recycling paper and cardboard. When
the time comes that you are able to freely leave your residences, drop off your papers and cardboard in
our recycling bins. Think Green – help preserve our world!
Spring cleaning? Finding those items of clothing that just don’t seem to work for you this year? Bring
your un-needed/ wanted clothing and shoes to the yellow bin located in the parking lot. Your
