CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

One of the spiritual celebrations for the region on Divine Mercy Sunday will be held at St. Barbara Parish in Cleveland.

The historic canonizations of two former popes, the Blessed John Paul II and Blessed John XXIII will be celebrated with a 4 a.m. live remote broadcast from Rome, followed by a light breakfast before the morning masses on Sunday, April 27. 

Prayers and presentations will be in both Polish and English and at 11 a.m. the second "Cleveland Mass Mob" will take place.

"Mass Mob" is a national movement to introduce older, historic churches in mainly inner-city neighborhoods to Catholics and others. This is an invitation to experience and share the liturgy and the Eucharist.  "Cleveland Mass Mob I", at St. Casimir was the most successful in the country and made national news. 

John Paul II served as pope from 1978 through 2005. And John XXIII served as pope from 1958 through 1963.  Both men had a great impact on the world and all peoples.


In addition to hosting "Cleveland's Mass Mob II" St. Barbara's Parish has also invited the Polish musical ensemble, "Diakonia" from Columbus, Ohio to play in honor of the canonizations.
