     We recently announced that we will celebrate the Mass of the Anointing of the Sick on Sunday, October 6th at the 12:00 Mass. For many in the parish, this sacrament is not understood very well. In the “old days” it was called “Extreme Unction” and was given when someone was at the point of death. The Church’s teaching today is different.

     The teaching is based on the Letter of St. James from the New Testament. In the letter, St. James says the sick are to be anointed in order to raise them up and save them.So the Church teaches that great care and concern should be taken to see that those of the faithful whose health is seriously impaired by sickness or old age receive this sacrament.

     The sacrament may be repeated if the sick person recovers after being anointed and then again falls ill or if during the same illness the person’s condition becomes more serious.A sick person may be anointed before surgery. Elderly people may be anointed if they have become weakened even though no serious illness is present. Sick children may be anointed is they have sufficient use of reason to be strengthened by the sacrament. The faithful should be anointed when the time is right and the sacrament should not be delayed. 

     In the instruction on this sacrament, that Church reminds all of us that those who are seriously ill need the special help of God’s grace in this time of anxiety, “lest they be broken in spirit and, under the pressure of temptation, become weakened in their faith.” So through the sacrament of anointing, Christ strengthens the faithful who are afflicted by illness or injury, providing them with the strongest support. So the decision to receive this sacrament is left to each individual.

     I urge everyone to seriously consider whether or not they will make use of this opportunity to receive this sacrament.


God Bless! Fr. Joe Bacevice

This weekend, our parish will accept donations for the Catholic Communications Campaign. These offerings help communicate the Gospel through Catholic social media activities, and enriches our faith through podcasts, television, radio and print media. Half of all proceeds remain in our diocese and support local needs. Please be generous. 



Beginning October 1, there will be an additional way of donating to St. Casimir’s. We are initiating ONLINE GIVING through direct withdrawal from your savings or checking account or by MasterCard, Visa, or Discover. This week we will put up a button on our website that will link you to our secure website to set up your own program of giving. More information will be available next weekend. This will not take the place of, but be in addition to, traditional giving in the Sunday Collection. A number of people have asked for this option and it has been well received at the parishes that have offered it.



From September 25 through November 3, you are invited to join other Christians for 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.

Our Ninth Annual Clambake/Steak Bake/Autumn Raffle will take place on Saturday, October 26th, 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.
    DINNER (as well as extra lottery drawing) TICKETS ARE NOW AVAILABLE after weekend Masses at the main entrance to the church, in the cafeteria after the 10:00 Mass, and during the week at the rectory during business hours.

The weekend of October 5-6, marks the 33rd Annual Blanket Sunday Collection to aid the needy, sponsored by the Diocesan St. Vincent de Paul Society.  Due to a lack of storage space, we will gratefully accept your donation and do the shopping for you, making your money go even further with bulk purchases of blankets and other items needed by the homeless and disadvantaged. So “blanket” someone for the winter – and give yourself a warm feeling! You may also donate online at    Envelopes are available at the entrances to the Church.
