A Message to Holy Martyrs Parishioners
Your support of Heart of a Shepherd is of great importance. You will help create a strong foundation for the future of the priesthood in our diocese and support Holy Martyrs. The Heart of a Shepherd Campaign is a historic effort to support the future of the priesthood in the Diocese of Cleveland. It is a $30 million effort to renovate Saint Mary and Borromeo Seminaries, to support our retired priests’ pension fund, and to relieve tuition debt for our newly ordained priests.
Heart of a Shepherd Campaign pledge cards have been mailed out to all of our parish families. This campaign will benefit seminarians, newly ordained priests, retired priests and Saint Mary and Borromeo Seminaries. Half of all the funds raised through Heart of a Shepherd will directly benefit Holy Martyrs Church.
