Heart of a Shepherd Campaign

St. Joan of Arc is pleased to announce that our parish is participating in the Heart of a Shepherd campaign for the Diocese of Cleveland. This is an extraordinary Diocesan-wide effort to better meet and serve the needs of the St. Mary and Borromeo seminaries, current seminarians, and our newly-ordained and retired clergy via a renovation to the seminaries, support to clergy pensions, and relief for clergy tuition debt. A $30 million campaign will support our mission to encourage vocations and to create an environment that fosters spiritual, social, academic growth and accompaniment. 


We hope you can join us in supporting this historic initiative.


Please find an informative campaign video featuring Bishop Edward Malesic linked here.


During the weekend of November 13-14, we are providing an opportunity for all parishioners to support the Heart of a Shepherd campaign by indicating their decision during mass. Whether you are ready to make a pledge, need more time, or have already made your decision, we invite each household to complete a card (or drop one off at the parish) before our engagement with the campaign ends. 


We hope you will prayerfully consider making a pledge in support of this important cause! You can make a gift in three easy ways:


1) Mail a pledge card to the campaign office 

     or complete it on “Commitment weekend”

2) Drop off a pledge card at the parish office.

3) Make a gift online at
