The Samaritans would like to thank all those who donated so generously to our organization over Labor Day weekend.  The $1,316.33 that was received will help people in our community with their utility bills, rent or mortgage payments, food costs and other miscellaneous expenses.  Since last November 1st (the beginning of our fiscal year), over $28,240 has been used to aid people in need in the Conneaut Lake area.   We are able to do this through the revenue we receive from the Holy Ground Thrift Shop and the many donations from individuals, organizations and churches in the area.  On behalf of those who benefit from your generosity, we thank you.

 The Holy Ground Thrift Shop continues to be open Mondays, 9am-noon and 5:30pm-7:30pm as well as Thursdays, 9am-6pm.  Please stop in and see our new fall clothing and décor.  For more information, please call 814-382-4487 during store hours.

We Catholics Must be Ready to Defend our Rights and Interests Against Aggressive Secularist Ideologues

Archbishop Chaput’s column on the recent Anti-Catholic emails lets us know what we’re up against.


St. Teresa of Calcutta

Monday, September 5th, 2016
by Fr. Jeff Lucas

After a fast-track process Mother Teresa has been declared a saint.  The church throughout the world rejoices.

Her feast day is September 5, the date of her death in 1997.  She was 87 years old.

Yet despite widespread affection and admiration for her in the secular world, there is also a vocal current of opposition and animus in the international left.  An interesting editorial analyzes the causes of this disdain.  It is well worth reading.
