Next Sunday is World Mission Sunday, a day all of us are asked to support the missionary efforts of the Church throughout the world. We do this by praying for the success of our missionaries and by contributing to support their work. We invite you to participate in this effort by donating to the Mission Sunday appeal. Please use the envelopes provided for this appeal next weekend


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.


On October 28th 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


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.

      Over the past several weeks I have placed an announcement in the bulletin asking for volunteers to run for a seat on our Parish Pastoral Council. As of today, we have received no applications.

     Our Pastoral Council is the most important advisory group I have in the parish. The Pastoral Council advises me on all aspects of parish life, from making up Mass schedules to setting priorities for property repairs and improvements. Every year we elect four members and I appoint one member for a two year term. Two members of the Council must be from the Lithuanian community and two members must be from the non-Lithuanian community. They can be re-elected once, and then are ineligible for one year.

     This year, two members are ineligible to run for another term. Also, I was unable to appoint a member last year, as those I approached would not accept the appointment. I am sure that there are at least five members of our parish who would be willing to serve on the council. The application process is easy and application forms are available in the Book Room. We would like all applications to be submitted by Sunday, November 4th.

     It is easy to sit back and watch, or to complain and criticize. It takes effort and commitment to become involved in the life of the parish. Being able to make a difference and be involved in Parish Life is a rewarding experience and worth the effort that goes into it. I invitie you to consider serving on the Parish Pastoral Council.

 God Bless ! Fr. Joe Bacevice

This weekend and next weekend, we will accept donations for the 2018 Calamities as requested by the National Bishops’ Conference. This money will be used to assist in the recovery from the devastation brought about by Hurricane Florence and other anticipated calamities. Envelopes are at the entrances to the Church.


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.
