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

Once I asked a fallen away Catholic friend of mine what he remembered about the parish priest from his youth. He said, “He was a gentle, nice guy. Kind of vanilla. Kept to himself.” It struck me that he, perhaps like many, perceive Catholic priests as the following:...

Pastor’s Thoughts

I believe we all know what it’s like standing up in front of classmates, fellow employees or peers and having to give some type of information or report. We often fear our peers will feel we don’t know what we are talking about; we fear thoughts arising within the...

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.
