Changes abound at St. John XXIII PDF Print E-mail

PERRYSBURG - It has been a very busy and hectic time recently at Saint John XXIII Catholic Community. With the canonization of the patron of the parish, Pope John XXIII, by Pope Francis on April 27, the church changed its name from Blessed John XXIII. Also, the parish last weekend held its "Commitment Weekend" for the capital campaign to construct a church building.
The current building at 24250 Dixie Highway (Ohio Route 25) south of the city serves many purposes including liturgies, but is not an actual church.
The parish is the newest parish in the Catholic Diocese of Toledo beginning its existence in July 2005. After initially meeting at Perrysburg High School as well as using other churches, the parish opened its Parish Life Center in November, 2008.
In under 10 years, the parish has grown its membership to more than 1,100 families and the multi-purpose hall is not big enough for Masses and all the other activities of the parish. Because the burgeoning parish has outgrown that facility it is now looking to construct an actual church building.
The planned church will be connected to the present facility and will include additional classroom, meeting and office spaces along with a gathering atrium space.
"Since 2005 we have been building a church community, and now it's time to build an actual church building," said Father Herb Weber, the parish's pastor.

Say the word "Wam" (Wham) and it can conjure up countless images depending on to whom you are talking. From a village in Pakistan to a 1980s British pop music duo. From a noise like a thud to endless acronyms for various organizations near and far.
Locally WAM stands for a dedicated group of volunteers from area churches who comprise the Wood (County) Area Ministries. The collaborative organization is financially supported by several churches with a goal to serve the needs of people throughout Wood County and beyond.
As previously published, WAM recently completed what has now become an annual event called "Feed the 5,000." This year a dozen or more churches gathered food staples during the Lenten season to help feed hungry residents through various food pantries.
WAM coordinates its efforts with other church and civic groups in the county, including Perrysburg Christians United, which holds a similar food drive each year.
Beyond the annual food drive, WAM seeks to assist people in a variety of ways.
"We focus on meeting people's basic human needs," Erin Hachtel, former chairman of WAM added.
While WAM is based in Bowling Green, they serve anyone living in the area as well as transients as they pass through.
Jo Tutolo, the volunteer coordinator with WAM, says their organization thrives on its connections with service agencies and those they serve.
"The more we can communicate with others, the better," Tutolo said.
