Last Thursday, our parish turned nine years old. Bishop Lennon celebrated our opening Mass on Sunday, October 25, 2009 at 10:00am.


     I remember a lot from that first day, and reflecting over the past nine years, I see many changes here at St. Casimir. I remember how on that first day, in planning everything, I forgot to appoint ushers to take up the collection. Now we have ushers at every Mass not only taking up the Sunday Collection, but assisting people when they can. We had a social in the gym after Mass. It was a cool, wet day and  I remember water dripping from the ceiling. Now our gym is completely renovated and a new roof installed.


     On that first day, we had only 150 families registered in the parish. Today, that number is more than doubled. In the last nine years, we made extensive renovations to our buildings and put them to the use they were intended and children again attend school in our school building. We have a functioning Pastoral Council that was set up by parishioners, and our Finance Council keeps a close eye on our finances. We have service organizations that raise money and provide many volunteers for parish functions, we have a religious education program for our young people and our Lithuanian organizations work to promote the Lithuanian culture. 


     For all the things we have accomplished, I say thank you to everyone, because without you, none of this could have happened. But, as much as we have done, we still have more to do. We need to continue our renovations, continue our evangelization, and continue to grow as a Parish. Also, as we begin our tenth year, I am challenging our Pastoral Council to work with me to clarify our Mission as a Parish serving in the Diocese of Cleveland. I can’t do any of these things alone. As you have worked with me in the past, I continue to look forward to working with you in the future.

God Bless ! Fr. Joe Bacevice


Friday, November 2nd is the First Friday of the Month. We will have our monthly Eucharistic Adoration from 8-9am. We will also have Adoration on Wednesday, November 14th from 6-7pm. We invite everyone in the Parish to spend some time in quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.


This Sunday 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


Thursday, November 1st, is the Feast of All Saints, a holy day of obligation. Masses to fulfill this obligation will be celebrated here on Wednesday at 7:30am and 7:00pm. 


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.


Next Sunday morning, November 4th, we go back to Standard Time. Next Saturday, before going to bed, remember to set your clocks back one hour, or you will be really early for Mass next Sunday.


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.
