2014 Cleveland Santacruzan
It is that time of year again for the Cleveland SantaCruzan! With the long winter finally over, how wonderful it will be to focus on one of the oldest traditions of Filipino religious expression that offers hope and joy in the midst of spring!
Continuing with the success of last yeara��s event, plans are being made to create a 2014 Cleveland SantaCruzan that provides individuals and families with an opportunity to celebrate the True Cross of Christ. Now in its 37th through daily prayers and songs at the Philippine American Cultural Center in Parma, while the final celebration will include the Mass and Procession just around the corner at Saint Columbkille Catholic Church. But most importantly, the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland through the Most Reverend Bishop Richard Lennon is graciously allowing the Cleveland SantaCruzan to borrow the True Cross reliquary from the collection of the late Archbishop Edward Hoban. Like last year, the cross reliquary will be accompanied by the traveling Pilgrim Virgin Statue (Our Lady of Fatima) on loan from Saint Columbkille Church.
As always, the Cleveland SantaCruzan is an event entirely free of charge for its participants. In order to ensure its success, it needs your help to defray costs in the form of a donation or the placement of an advertisement in the 2014 Souvenir Program.
