ask you to remember in your prayers the soul of Father John Wright and the
soul of Emily Bossard who died recently and was buried from our parish. May
they have eternal rest in the peace of God’s kingdom.

Memorial Day commemoration here at St. Casimir, beginning at 8:30am

WELCOME NEW PRIESTS
This Saturday, May 19th,
Bishop Perez ordained three men as priests to serve our diocese. We
congratulate Father Matthew Cortnik, Father Michael Feldtz, and Father
Richard Samid. May God’s blessings be with them as they begin their priestly
service to the Church of Cleveland.
BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
MOTHER OF THE CHURCH
Pope Francis has added a
Memorial for “The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of the Church” to the General
Roman Calendar. It will be celebrated each year on the Monday after
Pentecost. This year it will fall on Monday, May 21st. This new
Memorial supersedes the rubric at the end of Pentecost Mass which suggests
that a Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit be
celebrated on the Monday
after Pentecost. The readings of the day are proper and not optional.
