Pastors Thoughts

 I hope you have noticed the ladders on the old grade school. The roof repairs have begun. They will complete the grade school first. When completed, the former high school will begin along with starting the gutter replacements on our church building. The complete project, weather permitting, should be in December. If weather doesn’t permit, sometime in the spring. The Organ Restoration is coming along. We need $200,000.00 to fix and replace the leaks, pipe work and electrical problems. So far I am happy to report we have raised nearly $70,000.00. Thank you to all who have donated and if you are able, help us to restore our magnificent organ (maybe not now  but soon to be). I can assure you once completed, you will be in awe at how much power that instrument really has. Finally, the results of our annual Polish Festival are in this weeks bulletin. We profited $29,509. Thank you to all who helped and gave so generously of your time. Fr. Roach

REMEMBERING ALL SOULS

During the month of November, our deceased relatives and friends will be remembered in all of the daily Masses. As in the past, if you wish to have your deceased relatives and friends included, you may do so by printing their names on the All Souls Day card included in your packet of contribution envelopes and dropping it in the collection basket the week before All Souls Day. All cards received will remain on the altar throughout the month of November as a reminder that these souls who have gone before us are still alive not just in our memories and hearts but are alive with our God

THANK YOU

HELEN PELCZAR

The English translation of the book about the forgotten Stigmatic of our parish, Helen Pelczar, is available in English or Polish to purchase for $10. Stop in the sacristy after Mass to purchase a copy. The book is a fascinating story of Helen’s stigmata, sufferings and visions of Christ and our Blessed Mother. Helen Pelczar’s story is very unique to our parish and we would be blessed to have a home saint!
