The Archdiocese has changed its “Special Collection” schedule. The second collection next weekend is for Catholic Relief Services. This collection supports emergency relief, human development, and peace initiatives in countries around the world. The collection funds the ministries of six Catholic Church organizations: Catholic Relief Services, Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc., Migration and Refugee Services, the Department of Justice, Peace, and Human Development, the Secretariat of Cultural Diversity in the Church, and the Holy Father’s Relief Fund. Please use your August 6, 2017, envelope for this collection.
Thank you to all who helped make last Saturday’s 9th Annual Polish Food Festival the most successful one yet. Through your efforts, generosity and support, the Parish raised $14,888. Bóg Zapłać.
Sixth Sunday of Easter
Get into the Spirit
When Jesus was saying farewell to his disciples in the Gospel of John – praying that farewell, really, because what he had to say to them he said to God in prayer – he promised he would not leave them alone. He would send his Spirit, an Advocate, to be present to them until he returned. And lo, and behold, at Pentecost it happened. Christ did not go away; he remained in a different form. So if you want to know what the Holy Spirit is, just think of it as Jesus’ ongoing presence, which is always with you.
