April 13 - 14, 2018 m.

 

     Today marks the beginning of the most solemn week of the Church year Ė Holy Week. During this week we are called to remember and reflect on our Lord Jesusí days of suffering, death and finally His Resurrection.

     All of us are invited to walk with our Lord, from His triumphal entry into Jerusalem which we remember today, His gift of Himself in the Eucharist at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday, His trial, suffering and death on Good Friday, to his Resurrection on Easter.

     I invite everyone in the Parish to participate in these special moments in Jesusí life. Taking time participate in these events serves to deepen our appreciation for the gift of salvation, deepen our relationship with our Lord, and deepen our commitment to be His followers. 
 

                      God Bless! Fr. Joe Bacevice

OFFERING FOR THE HOLY LAND

On Good Friday, April 19th, we will take up a collection to support the Holy Land. Money collected provides support to maintain the sacred places in the Holy Land and provide for the needy living there. Please be generous.

BLESSING OF FOOD

One of the most beloved traditions of many Eastern European cultures, including our own, is the blessing of food for Easter. We have observed this tradition since we opened at St. Casimirís nine years ago, but it seems that each year, fewer people are coming for the blessing. This year, we invite everyone in the parish, especially our families with children to experience this annual blessing. Father Bacevice will conduct the blessing on Saturday, April 20th, at 12:00 noon.

YOUR EASTER OFFERING

Easter has been a traditional time for parishioners to make an extra gift to the Parish, and so we ask everyone to consider a substantial gift to the Parish this Easter. Our income from parishioner donations continues to decrease each year and we are facing some expensive repair projects this summer. So please be generous with your Easter Offering.

 

 LAST CHANCE TO ORDER YOUR PLANTS
 

Last chance to order your plants from the Altar Society. Orders will be accepted until Tuesday, April 16. Return your order form together with your payment to the parish office either through the collection basket, the mail, or drop it off at the rectory by the due date. Support your parish and beautify your yard. Itís a win-win! Questions? Call Jackie Taylor at 216-509-0401.

 

A FAMILY PERSPECTIVE

When Jesus died, Mary grieved alone. Most friends and followers fled to safety except for a few acquaintances. We have friends and neighbors who have lost a loved one and feel alone in their grief. Resist the urge to avoid them. Even when we donít know what to say, we can comfort them in their sorrow by just listening and compassionately being with them.

HONEY CAKE/GINGERBREAD COFFEE SOCIAL

Sunday, April 28th, everyone is invited to participate in a family-style Coffee Social after the 10:00 Mass. All parish families are invited to bring of plate of honey cake or gingerbread cookies to the lower hall and to share the Easter season spirit (and your goodies) with your fellow parishioners.
