       FINANCIAL REPORT  With this bulletin, we are pleased to present our Parish Financial Report covering the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020.  This report, in greater detail, was submitted to the Finance Office of the Diocese and was accepted.  Seeing this report should be a reminder to all of us of what a tremendous asset for which we are responsible.  It should serve as a reminder of our obligation to support the parish to the best of our ability and it is a reminder to be very careful in how we spend the money entrusted to us.  If anyone has any questions about any part of this report, please contact me or any member of the Finance Council.  In addition to keeping a close eye on our parish finances, the Finance Council is also responsible for financial oversight of all our parish organizations.  The members of the Finance Council give many hours of their time to fulfilling their ministry of service to the parish.  They take their responsibility seriously and are committed to keeping our parish and our parish organizations in compliance with all Federal and State laws along with following the fiscal policies of the Diocese of Cleveland.  The member of our Finance Council are: Aurelija Jucaitis, Patricia Campbell, Josephine Nampewo, Remigijus Belzinskas and David Oligny.  God Bless!

PLEASE PRAY

We ask you to remember in your prayers the soul or Marija Puškorius who died recently and was buried from our parish.  May she have eternal rest in the peace of God’s kingdom.  

.SAINT CASIMIR PARISH MASS ONLINE

We will continue to make Sunday Mass available online beginning each Saturday at 4:00pm. The Mass will be bilingual with the emphasis changing each week between Lithuanian and English. We invite you to participate at this Mass if you are not able to attend Mass in Church because of age, sickness or disability. If you have any comments – either good or bad – we would be interested in hearing them. Email Father Bacevice or Janet. Thank you.

DISPENSATION FROM OBLIGATION
TO ATTEND SUNDAY MASS

Though we will be opening next weekend, many might feel that the risk to going to Mass is too great, or they might not feel well enough to go to Mass.  Because of this, the Bishops of Ohio and our Diocesan Administrator have dispensed the faithful living and visiting Ohio from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice.  For those who are not present at Mass, please keep Sunday holy by watching Mass on television or online.

PRIESTHOOD SUNDAY

Today Catholics will celebrate Priesthood Sunday, a day set aside to celebrate the importance of the gift of priesthood in the life of the Church and for us to reflect on the ministry that our priests share with us - when we gather at the Table of the Lord, and when we call on them in our times of need. Consider sharing a personal note or a card of thanks with them. We pray that our young people will be inspired by the ministry and witness of our priests and that their hearts be open to hearing and responding to God’s call. More information on priesthood can be found at www.cleveland­catholic­priesthood.com.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ST. CASIMIR PARISH
 

It was eleven years ago today, October 25, 2009, that Bishop Lennon celebrated the opening Mass and created St Casimir Parish.  From the day of the original merger between Our Lady of Perpetual Help and St. George to today, we can see how the parish has grown and changed.  Even as we continue to work through the COVID-19 pandemic, we are still a growing and vibrant parish.  As we move forward into the future, we will continue to face new challenges, but what will not change is our commitment to our mission as a Catholic parish in the Diocese of Cleveland.  May the Lord bless all of us, unite us in our work as a parish and in this difficult time, keep us healthy.

ALL SOULS

 Monday, November 2ND, is the Feast of All Souls, the day we remember our dead.  The three traditional All Souls Day Masses will be offered at 7:30 am (English), 12:00 noon (English) and 7:00 pm (Lithuanian).   Following the evening Mass we will have the traditional Lithuanian All Souls commemoration and prayers for the dead.  We invite the families who have lost a loved one since last November 2ND, to participate in the commemoration.  An All Souls Day envelope is included with the offering envelopes with space to include the names of the dead you want to be remembered in the Masses.  In addition, All Souls Day candles are available at the Rectory which can be inscribed with the name of the deceased you want remembered.  These candles will burn for 5 days beginning on November 2ND.  The donation for the All Souls Day candle is $5 and envelopes are available at the entrances to the church.  For those who are attending Mass remotely, simply mail us your donation ($5 for each candle) and the name you want inscribed. All are invited to participate in this commemoration.

BLANKET SUNDAY

If you haven’t had a chance to contribute to this year’s Blanket Sunday appeal, please consider doing so.  The need is greater than ever this year as many more people experience financial hardship during the pandemic.  Donations can be made securely online at https://www.svdpcle.org/donate-today/blanket-sunday/ .  Checks can also be mailed to: St. Vincent de Paul Society Blanket Sunday, 1404 East Ninth Street - 3RD Floor, Cleveland, OH 44114.  Thank you for helping us “blanket others in warmth and compassion.”

FAMILY PERSPECTIVES

Today Jesus tells us love of God and neighbor are two parts of the greatest commandment.  Loving families do both.  They express their love of God as a family knowing this will help them love each other.  What energizes their love?  Loving God through loving people. How are we loving one another through the COVID-19 pandemic?

Next weekend, we change our clocks back to Standard Time. Next Saturday evening remember to set your clocks back one hour.
