Friday, November 2nd, is the Feast of All Souls, the day we remember our dead. Three traditional All Souls Day Masses will be offered: 7:30am (EN), 12:00 noon (EN) and 7:00pm (LT). Following the evening Mass we will have the traditional Lithuanian All Souls procession 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, we have ALL SOULS DAY CANDLES, 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 each All Souls Day candle is $5. For your convenience, candle request envelopes can be found at the church entrances. We invite everyone to participate.


We have begun the nominating process for new members of our Pastoral Council. This year, we will be electing four members to our Pastoral Council for a two year term beginning January 1, 2019. Application forms are available in the Book Room and will be accepted through November 4, 2018. Voting will begin November 18th and conclude December 2nd. Any member of the parish, age 16 and older, with a few exceptions, eligible to run for a seat on the Pastoral Council. We invite you to seriously consider serving on this important advisory body in our Parish.


Our Eighth Annual Clambake/Steak Bake/Autumn Raffle will take place on Saturday, October 27th, beginning after the 5:30 Mass in our upper hall. Raffle tickets are now available at the back of the Church. All parishioners are asked to pick up their envelope with Raffle tickets, as this will save us the cost of mailing them to everyone.
     This year we have a new caterer and are able to lower the prices and improve the quality of our food. Dinner tickets are now available after all the Masses at the main entrance to the church and in the hall after the 10:00 Mass. They can also be purchased during the week at the rectory during business hours. Ticket prices are: Clambake - $30, Steak-bake - $35, extra dozen clams - $10. In addition to great food, there will be plenty of refreshments, a basket auction, split raffles, and much more.
   WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS to help with this project: to set up, clean up, bake, and help in other ways. Please sign up in the church’s main entrance to help us out. We look forward to seeing everyone on October 27th.
   PROGRAM BOOK Again this year, we are printing a program book for our Fall Fund-Raiser. Parishioners, Parish Organizations, and businesses are invited to advertise or send their greetings showing support for our Parish. An ad can be placed in the book for as little as $10. Ad forms are in everyone’s ticket envelope. Additional forms are available at the back of the church. Everyone is invited to participate.

     Today is Respect Life Sunday and October is Respect Life Month. When most of us think about respect life or pro-life, often we limit our thoughts to abortion and the legality of abortion in the United States. True, abortion is a great moral evil, not only here in our country, but in many parts of the world. All of us do need to show our support for anti-abortion legislation, keep this issue in the open, and work and pray to end this evil in our world.

     But being pro-life is much more. To call oneself a believer or supporter of life, one is committing themself to support the dignity of all life from the moment of conception to the moment of natural death. Issues of euthanasia, assisted suicide, and capital punishment are important pro-life issues in our society, as are issues of crime, poverty, human traficking,and starvation. It is too easy for us to just ignore these issues as most of us live a comfortable healthy life. Yet, our call as Christians and as Catholics is to form our conscience to see the dignity of all human life and to take whatever actions we can to support efforts to address our social ills and to see the dignity of each person in our world as a creation of a loving God.

     We can do this first by prayer, then by supporting legislation that protects all people, and then by being involved in our own communities working to improve the quality of life of everyone, especially the most vulnerable people among us. When we are able to do these things, then we can truly call ourselves pro-life.


 God Bless ! Fr. Joe Bacevice


Father Bacevice will be away from Tuesday afternoon to Friday afternoon (Oct. 9 – 12 ) at a clergy conference. In this absence, there will be no services in the Church. The Masses listed in the bulletin for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be said at the conference. Also, there will be no Evening Eucharistic Holy Hour on Wednesday, nor will there be morning rosary in the Church. However, the parish office will be open for regular parish business from 10:00am to 5:00pm.


We will celebrate the Mass of the Anointing of the Sick on Sunday, October 14, at 12:00 noon. We encourage our older members and those with chronic illnesses to participate at that Mass and receive this important Sacrament of healing.


The weekend of October 13-14, marks the 32nd Annual Blanket Sunday Collection to aid the needy. This collection is sponsored by the Diocesan St. Vincent de Paul Society. Due to a lack of storage space, we will gratefully accept your donation and do the shopping for you, making your money go even further with bulk purchases of blankets and other items needed by the homeless and disadvantaged. So “blanket” someone for the winter – and give yourself a warm feeling! You may also donate online at
