This is a photograph of a portion of a large stained glass window in Immaculate Heart of Mary Cleveland, one of the many sacred spaces of beauty built to house a community of believers and followers of Jesus.

We here wish to promote a rejuvenation of such communities.
Recently, we have heard of the elegant idea of a Catholic Mass Mob to present themselves at a particular church. This has been pioneered by Buffalo of New York state. Buffalo had their first at St. Adalbert's Basilica on All Souls Day 2012 [click]. The second Mass Mob was on January 12th at Our Lady of Perpetual Help [click]. The third is to be on March 23rd, and voting will begin February 10th to decide [click].
This is the first post on this journal. We may add graphics and contact information, at present we have not been organised. We, of course, wish to have this happening here in Akron, Cleveland, Lorain, and throughout North America.
