Cleveland Mass Mob XXXI
10 AM
St. Philomena — East Cleveland
13824 Euclid Avenue

Fr. Thomas Mahon was pastor at St. Thomas Aquinas Cleveland. Glenville (which then was outside of Cleveland) wanted a parish. Fr. Mahon would also become pastor at the new parish of St. Aloysius. People in East Cleveland asked Fr. Mahon to organise another parish, which became St. Philomena in 1902. St. Philomena is still in East Cleveland on Euclid Avenue. At the time, there were no Catholic churches on Euclid Avenue inside the city of Cleveland. That part of Euclid was Millionaires' Row, and no Catholic churches were allowed. On the parallel Superior Avenue there were several, St. Thomas Aquinas being the furthest east.

Since 2009, St. Philomena and St. Ann (Cleveland Heights) are part of the new combined parish of Communion of Saints. The closed Christ the King (East Cleveland), and closed St. Louis (Cleveland Heights) were merged into the new parish.

Tremont Cityside Ballroom
2187 West 14th Street

Amigos of the Spanish American Committee, We have worked towards our mission to serve as the gateway to socioeconomic success for the Latino community in Cleveland for over 52 years through the support of generous organizations and individuals like you. Your involvement and contribution to our 2 major fundraising events in 2019 will enable us to continue empowering Latino families to break the cycle of poverty and the trauma of being displaced in order to become self-sufficient members of the Cleveland community. During the months following the hurricane the Spanish American Committee served over 780 families providing basic needs, housing and social and employment services and the families continue to come to us for assistance.

On Friday May 3rd, The Spanish American Committee will be hosting our first annual luncheon “Nuestra Comunidad Hispana”. Our luncheon will concentrate on life after Hurricane Maria. Guests will have the opportunity to hear firsthand experiences from survivors as well as students and teachers from Lincoln West High School who visited the Island of Puerto Rico with clean-up efforts. We cannot continue to meet the needs of the community without the success of our major fundraising events. Your meaningful tax-deductible donation of gift certificates, products, sponsorship dollars, or general monetary donations will contribute and make these celebrations impactful.

All net proceeds from the event will go directly to support the work of strengthening families in the Hispanic community of greater Cleveland. If you have any questions about the sponsorship opportunities or donation options, please contact Ramonita Vargas, at 216-961-2100 or via email at ramonitav@spanishamerican.org.

In The Galleria, Downtown Cleveland

The Cleveland Hungarian Heritage Society Cordially invites you and your family to join us for: George Szell: One of the greatest orchestra builders of the 20th century Marcia Hansen Kraus, author, and musician.

In the words of one reviewer, Ms Kraus's book is "filled with vivid backstage stories, George Szell's Reign reveals the human side of a great orchestra - and how one visionary built a premier classical music institution."

Lectures are in English. All lectures are held at the Hungarian Heritage Museum, in The Galleria, Downtown Cleveland, with coffee and refreshments following each presentation.
