Fr. Brunovsky Invests in the Future with Heart of a Shepherd
July 15, 2021
“We are investing in the future,” says Fr. Steve Brunovsky, pastor at St. Hilary Parish in Fairlawn, as he refers to the Heart of a Shepherd capital campaign that kicked off in fall 2019. “When we ask men to come to our seminaries, we want to have a place that is welcoming, warm, and comfortable. If the building is old and dingy, they may have second thoughts before even entering our seminaries.”
His parish agreed to be part of the first cohort to participate in this diocesan-wide initiative aimed at better meeting the needs of Saint Mary and Borromeo Seminaries, its seminarians, and our newly-ordained and retired clergy. And, at the suggestion of Fr. Brunovsky, the campaign added a component to fund pressing parish needs.

Seminary Second Floor Renovation is Underway
April 9, 2021
Work continues to move along on the second floor renovation. A new trade entered the project this week as the in-fill of windows that were blocked up to accommodate the shower in the shared bathrooms, began to be installed. In the pre-construction meetings, much time was spent on this task so the brick and finish would match the existing brick; this should look nice!

Major Electrical Project is Nearly Complete at Center for Pastoral Leadership
August 24, 2020
The coronavirus pandemic is causing disruptions for many, but it proved to be a blessing for work scheduled at the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland’s Center for Pastoral Leadership in Wickliffe.
Phil Guban, treasurer of Borromeo and Saint Mary seminaries and CPL chief operating officer, said a major electrical upgrade was scheduled for the 45-acre campus in conjunction with other planned renovations to the main building. Classes switched to remote learning in March, so not many people have been on the CPL campus, which consists of seven buildings.
