    Deacon Paul Kipfstuhl will lead a prayer service for Robin Eckelberry and his family at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Medina gazebo. Robin is a parishioner who has been missing nearly 2 weeks after going fishing on Lake Erie. All are welcome to bring candles.

    On Sept. 1, 2019, the 46-year-old Medina man failed to return home after fishing several hours on Lake Erie. His boat and some personal items were found in the boat, which was idling more than 1 mile offshore. The Coast Guard coordinated a search by air and water, but suspended efforts the next day, pending further information.

    Robin and his wife, Karen, have been married 20 years and are the parents three daughters, Hailey, 18, a freshman at the University of Akron; Hannah, 15, a sophomore at Cloverleaf High School; and Holly, 9, a fourth-grader at Cloverleaf Elementary School. Robin is a superintendent with Independence Excavating. He lent his experience in operating heavy machinery to the St. Francis Xavier Parish buildings and grounds committee and assisted on projects at the church, where he and his family are members.

    Meanwhile, a fund has been established to support the Eckelberry family during this uncertain time. Donations may be made at any Key Bank in Northeast Ohio, and marked to the attention of the Robin Eckelberry Fund.

    Those who wish to contribute by mail can send donations to:
    Key Bank
    ℅ Robin Eckelberry Fund
    1090 N. Court St.
    Medina, OH 44256

    Please keep the Eckelberry family in your prayers.

    Our Mission

    Welcome to St. Francis Xavier Parish

    St. Francis Xavier Parish extends a hand of welcome to all as companions on the journey of faith. We are a Catholic community where diversity, acceptance and participation lead us on our lifelong journey of spiritual growth.

    As Christ’s Eucharistic family, the living presence of the Holy Spirit fires us to embrace our baptismal promises. Vibrant celebrations and faith filled parishioners are central to the communal expression of our love for God and God’s love for us.

    Our educational programs provide for spiritual growth in a friendly, open atmosphere to further develop our minds and souls.

    Opportunities for ministry abound as we live the Gospel through the contribution of our time, talent, and treasure.

    We are all challenged to “Go in Peace to Love and Serve the Lord,” as we are called to share all that we receive.
