    Last weekend was one of the hottest in many years. I did cancel our music last weekend along with communion under both species, with the goal of shortening the Masses so none of us would be confined in the Church for too long. Climate scientists tell us that we can expect more of these extreme heat events in the years to come.

     As I write this piece, I am grateful for the cooler weather, but the predictions for this Sunday again are calling for temperatures in the 90's. These temperatures are dangerous for many of us. So when confronted with these temperatures, please use common sense in deciding whether to come here to Mass or not. Remember, God does not expect the impossible from us.

     Also, we as a parish have to seriously consider putting air conditioning in the church building. With more days of hot and humid weather, this is less of a luxury and more of a necessity. In order for the parish to serve you, we have to provide a safe and comfortable environment for worship, which in today’s world requires air conditioning.

     It is a big challenge, and we have many big challenges. Those who came before us faced big challenges and met them. What we have today is a result of their sacrifices. Now it is our turn to meet the challenges before us and leave our legacy for those who come after us.


God Bless! Fr. Joe Bacevice


Friday, August 2nd, we will have our First Friday Holy Hour from 8-9am, and on Wednesday, August 14th, we will have our Evening Holy Hour from 6-7pm in the Church. All are invited to stop in to spend some quiet time in prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.



The Holy Name Society is pleased to announce that the Annual Picnic for Parishioners will take place on Wednesday, July 31, from 5-8pm at the East Shore Park Club, at the corner of East Park and Dorchester Dr., on the shores of Lake Erie. Hot dogs, burgers, snacks and soft drinks will be served. There is no cost for the picnic as the Holy Name Society underwrites the entire cost. This is a good way to meet fellow parishioners and learn about the Holy Name Society. We look forward to seeing you.


This year’s Jubilee Mass with Bishop Perez is scheduled for Saturday, October 12, at 10:00am. Online registration is now available. For more information contact Laura at the Rectory office or contact Jason Lewis at or call 216-334-3974.


During the month of July, there will be no coffee served after the 10:00 Mass. This gives our coffee hosts and hostesses a break during the warm summer days ahead.


     Thank you! Your gifts to the Catholic Charities Annual Appeal are at work making an immediate difference in the lives of God’s most vulnerable people here in our parish, our community, and throughout the Diocese. As of June 30th, a total of 42,918 donors have pledged nearly $12 million toward the annual goal of $13.5 million. You are the reason for this success.

     Here at St. Casimir’s, 107 parishioners have pledged $15,662 toward our parish goal of $15,710. That is 99.69% of our overall goal! Your support makes a difference and transforms lives. As we are only $48 short of our goal, there is still time to show your support. Call Karen Joyce at 216-696-6525 ext. 1910 or donate online at:

Attention all women! You are invited to the first annual Cleveland Catholic Women’s Conference, Saturday, October 19th, at St. Basil the Great Parish in Brecksville, OH. Hear Fr. Patrick Schultz, Mary Bielski and Laura Mary Phelps as they talk about our call to be “Fearlessly Faithful.” The day will also include Mass with Bishop Perez and opportunities for prayer, confession, Eucharistic adoration and forming friendships with other women of faith. Visit to register or for more information.



“Jesus was praying.” What a powerful example for us! He knew this was the way to say connected to God the Father and handle all the demands being placed on Him. Jesus assures us if we put God first, we will receive and find whatever we need from His infinite goodness and wisdom. But we must make the time to stop, listen, and seek God first in prayer. Pope Francis reminds us: “moments of family prayer and acts of devotion can be more powerful for evangelization than from any catechism class or sermon.” Make prayer a daily part of your family routine.



NEXT Sunday, August 4th, from 12 noon until 10:00pm join us at the19th Annual Catholic Family FESTival at the Center for Pastoral Leadership (28700 Euclid Ave., Wickliffe).
