     For those of us who drive all over town, April begins road construction season, and it’s often said that the summer flower of Cleveland is the orange barrel. 

     Now that May is upon us, there will be construction going on here at St. Casimir’s and around us. Soon construction will begin on our handicapped entrance to the Church building and the front entrance to the Rectory will be torn out and replaced. At the same time, we are looking to complete repairs on the front of the Church. During the summer months, there will be electrical work done in the school building. 

   The major neighborhood project for this year will be beginning soon. A new sewer will be installed along Marcella Rd. from Lake Shore Blvd. to E. 185th St., then run north on East 185th St. to Pawnee Ave. The tunnel for the sewer will be dug outside our Marcella parking lot. During this construction, access to our Marcella parking lot will be restricted, along with travel on Marcella. The digging on E. 185th will also cause a lot of traffic congestion. Additional sewer projects will also begin off of E. 200th St, causing congestion there.

     With delays, these projects could extend well into 2020 and possibly into 2021. When these road projects begin, we will keep everyone informed on the best way to come to Church. We ask for everyone’s patience during this time as the end results will be worth all the inconvenience.

God Bless! Fr. Joe Bacevice


We ask you to remember in your prayers the soul of Vladas Pleckaitis who died and was buried from our Parish. May he live forever in the joy of the Resurrection.


This Monday, May 6th, we will begin accepting Masses for 2020. Masses will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis. Families are restricted to two weekend Masses, only one which can be at 11:00am; there is no restriction on the number of daily Masses. Masses can be scheduled either in person at the rectory office during regular business hours, a note placed in the collection basket at any weekend Mass, or mailed to the office. The Mass offering must accompany the request. The usual Mass offering is $10. Once Masses are scheduled, they will not be moved.                              


As we announced last weekend, beginning on the First Sunday of Advent (November 30-December 1, 2019), we are changing our weekend Mass schedule. Masses will be celebrated on Saturday evening at 5:00pm (English), and on Sunday morning at 8:30am (English) and 11:00am (Lithuanian).


Our Wednesday Evening Eucharistic Holy Hour will be on May 8th, from 6:00-7:00pm. All are invited to stop in for some time of quiet prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.


     Our Holy Name Society (HNS) appreciates your support. Each summer the HNS sponsors and organizes an annual summer picnic for all parishioners. They provide food, snacks and soft drinks. Many attendees bring side dishes, salads and desserts. Everyone who participates has a good time. In addition to the summer picnic, the HNS sponsors our monthly Eucharistic Adoration, and raises money for various Parish projects.

     The Holy Name Society is always looking for new members. Consider using the May Holy Name Society offering envelope to become an active or supporting member. Dues are only $5 for the year.

     Congratulations to Loretta Gudenas, winner of the April split raffle. Tickets for the May drawing are now on sale after most weekend Masses at the entrances to the Church. The next drawing will take place at the May meeting on Wednesday, May 29th. Remember, you can’t win unless you buy a ticket.


Memorial Day is approaching, and our Catholic War Veterans Post 613 will have their annual Poppy Distribution. This activity enables the Post to continue their welfare programs for our veterans and their families. They will be distributing poppies and accepting donations after all the Masses the weekend of May 25-26. Please be generous in supporting their work


As the activity year winds down, many start thinking about summer activities. This is the time of year I start thinking about next year, particularly regarding religious education. It is the parish’s responsibility to see that the children are receiving religious education and are participating in the life of the Church. For our younger children, preparation is needed for their First Communion. Diocesan policy requires two years of religious education prior to receiving First Communion. For those approaching their teen years, preparation is needed to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. For those in Catholic School, there is a seven week program, and for those not in Catholic School, an additional two years of religious education is needed. Families having children who will be receiving their First Communion or Confirmation are asked to contact Fr. Bacevice or Jackie Caruso-Taylor to register for classes.


Jesus invited the disciples to come and have breakfast. Through this breakfast at the beach and at the Last Supper, Jesus teaches us that meals can be more than eating. Meals are opportunities to share prayer, share the stories of our lives, mutual understanding and forgiveness. Expect Jesus to be present at family meals.
