Thank you to those who helped us on our Lenten journey by providing individual copies of the Stations of the Cross and leading us in walking to and praying the Stations, both in English and in Polish.
Thank you to all who prepared for and participated in our beautiful and meaningful celebrations of Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, our Easter Food Blessing, the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. The church decorators, music ministers, Eucharistic ministers, lectors, altar servers and ushers enriched our Easter experience. Even though these services were modified by the Archdiocese due to the pandemic, we were fortunate to be able to celebrate them, unlike last year when they could not be held in church.
Thank you to those who took attendance and those who sanitized the church between each service so that we would all be safe.
A special Thank You to Fr. Raju, Fr. Janusz and Deacon Steve for celebrating our Easter liturgies and to Fr. Sannella for joining us for the Easter Food Blessing.

All are invited to come and pray with and for those afflicted with cancer.
Solemnity of the Second Sunday of Easter; Divine Mercy Sunday
Hold onto the holy memories
It’s unlikely that those who survive the pandemic will look back on these days with much nostalgia. Sickness and loss, fear and division, stress and isolation: The consequences will be with us for a generation. Yet emerging from the tragedy were also instances of humanity, decency, and heroism that echoed the time of the first apostles. We’ve shared food, masks, information, errands, toilet paper, songs. We’ve gathered on balconies and in virtual rooms. We've found ways to pray and to encourage. This Divine Mercy Sunday, give thanks for those who have helped you through this and every crisis.
