WELCOME!

DISCOVER GOD, BEAUTY, AND GOODNESS.

 

We are a Catholic Church in Tremont, Ohio.

Welcome to the St. John Cantius website. I am glad you are here. St. John Cantius has been serving the Roman Catholic community since 1898 on the corner of College and Professor Ave. The parish continues to grow as older homes are being renewed and apartments continue to be built on all sides of our parish. There is a return to city life and St. John Cantius is in the middle of the excitement. Tremont is a thriving community that is rich in diversity, culturally multifarious, and ethnically enriching. St. John Cantius was opened to serve the ever-growing Polish immigrants over 125 years ago who arrived in Cleveland to work in the industrial flats. We continue to share our Polish heritage with the neighborhood. Our annual Polish Festival is one example to experience the ethnicity of our Polish heritage. As the neighborhood continues to attract new residents, we welcome everyone into our parish family. Know there is always room for you here.

Pastor’s Thoughts

Summer is surely upon us all. I hope everyone is keeping cool. I wanted to bring to everyone’s attention our parish picnic which will be held Sunday, July 28 immediately following the 11:30 am Mass. It will be held in the rectory backyard. There will be a food truck...

Pastor’s thoughts

This weekend we celebrate and honor all of our fathers both living and deceased. Unlike Mother’s Day which was though of in 1908, the proclaimed officially by President Wilson in 1914 just 6 years in the making, Father’s Day took much longer to become an officially...

Pastor’s Thoughts

Liturgically we begin what the church calls ‘Ordinary Time.’ It has always puzzled me that a season of the liturgical year would be called “Ordinary Time.” It comes from the Latin “Tempus per annum, or time through the year.” Ordinary time are the numbered Sundays...

Parishioner Experiences

I attend St. John Cantius regularly and very much enjoy this church. Father Roach is a great preacher and I never drift when listening to his sermons. The church is beautiful. If you are near the Tremont area, I highly recommend checking out St. John Cantius even if you cannot attend mass there.

One of the most beautiful churches I have ever seen and the mass was just as spiritually fulfilling

YOU’RE INVITED.

We welcome new parishioners at any time.

To register, call the rectory to set an appointment with the pastor.
