Saint Leonard of Port Maurice
Feast Day: November 26
Patronage: parish missions, missionaries, preachers, Imperia, Italy
Saint Leonard of Port Maurice was a Franciscan friar of the Strict Observance who lived at the monastery of St. Bonaventure in Rome. He preached on devotions to the Blessed Sacrament, the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Conception of Mary and the Stations of the Cross, even building almost 600 stations in Italy, including one in the Colosseum. He was ordained in 1703 and became a sought after preacher of parish missions and retreats. The strain of his missionary labors and his mortifications had completely exhausted him when he died in 1751 at his Friary.

Blessed Miguel Agustin Pro1
891 - 1927
Feast Day: November 23
José Ramón Miguel Agustín Pro Juárez, also known as Blessed Miguel Pro was a Mexican Jesuit Catholic priest. Falsely accused in the bombing attempt on a former Mexican president, Miguel became a wanted man. Betrayed to the police, he was sentenced to death without the benefit of any legal process. On the day of his execution, Fr. Pro forgave his executioners, prayed, bravely refused the blindfold and died proclaiming, "Viva Cristo Rey", "Long live Christ the King!" Known for his religious piety and innocence, he was beatified by Pope John Paul II as a Catholic martyr on September 25, 1988.

As we approach Thanksgiving and #GivingTuesday, we ask that you prayerfully consider making a pledge to the Living Christ campaign!
Here at Epiphany of the Lord, we will be using our parish share to create the Living Stones Mission & Ministry Endowment. This endowment will allow our parish to better invest in our people by funding staffing and training, parishioner volunteer training, and ministry programs and workshops.
Essential elements of the Living Christ campaign include:
(1) the creation of a separate 501(c)(3) Catholic Foundation which legally ensures these funds will be used as outlined in the Living Christ brochure,
(2) endowments to support our faith into perpetuity,
(3) the expansion of Catholic Charities across the Diocese and rebuilding the Helping Hands building in East Toledo,
(4) funding Catholic education for all students, and
(5) support for clergy—active and retired—throughout our diocese. ... See MoreSee Less

Patronage: Church music, great musicians, poets, France
Cecilia's parents arranged for her to be married to Valerian of Trastevere. Because she was focused above, she is said to have interiorly sung to Jesus while her wedding music was playing. This marked the beginning of her association with music in the Church. Through her influence, her husband and his brother were converted. After they were martyred, Cecilia was martyred for refusing to partake in idol worship. She is remembered in the Canon of the Mass.
