CATHOLIC CHARITIES

     Thank you! Your gifts to the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal are at work making an immediate difference in the lives of Godís most vulnerable people here in our parish, our community and throughout the Diocese. As of June 30th, 44,014 donors have pledged $11,861,205 to the Appeal, nearly 95% of the Appealís goal of $12.5 million.
     Here at St. Casimirís, 120 parishioners have pledged $15,358 toward our parish goal of $13,843. That is 110.95% of our overall goal!
     Thank you for answering the call to be missionary disciples: to be charitable, loving, caring, and to reach out to those in need who cannot help themselves, people like John who spent three months at St. Elizabeth Center homeless shelter and found the help he needed to get back into the workforce and into his own apartment. ďI donít know where I would be without Catholic Charities,Ē says John.
     Your support makes a difference and transforms lives. See the faces of those impacted by your generosity on the website:

     Last weekend we had an increase in attendance at our 10:00 Mass, as many have returned from the celebrations in Lithuania. People started to make up missed offerings, so this weekís collection gave us a surplus. Once the weather cools a bit, others will return. Last week we had our Holy Name society picnic for the parishioners, which was a success. Next weekend, our cafeteria opens after remodeling and renovations. We have been working on planning our Autumn Raffle and Clambake, and have been preparing for another activity year in the Parish.

     There have been some other lesser known things going on this summer. We are getting ready for repairs that have to be done to the front of the church building and some repair work that needs to be done to the church roof. Once completed, we can get contracts out to repair the steps and landings at the entrances to the church which we hope to do in the spring of 2019.

     When we work on planning, we concentrate on three areas. Liturgical/ Spiritual, which looks at the Church Year. We plan major feasts like Christmas and Easter, we look at programs to enhance the spiritual well being of all our parishioners. The second area is Cultural/Social events which enhances the quality of life for our members. Our parish activities include our fund raisers, along with cultural events that we sponsor or host. The final area is the Physical Plant of the parish. We need to maintain and improve over $12million worth of buildings - over 90,000 square feet - along with parking lots, and grassed areas.
     Each one of our projects, whether they are liturgical, cultural or physical, need to be planned, evaluated, funded and executed. As these projects continue, I ask for your opinion on what needs to be done on all levels, your continued cooperation and support so we can complete the projects, and your patience while this process goes on. As we continue to move forward as a parish community, be assured that all our plans are made to improve the quality of everything we do and plan for a great future for our parish.

 God Bless ! Fr. Joe Bacevice

 PRISIMINKITE MALDOJE

We ask you to remember in your prayers the following who have died: Father John Rathfon, Father James Viall, and Vytas Matas. May they have eternal rest in the peace of Godís kingdom.

SUNDAY COFFEE

There will be no Sunday Coffee this weekend. It will resume in our remodeled cafeteria next Sunday, August 5th after the 10:00 Mass.
