Thanksgiving will soon be upon us. As we gather together to thank the Lord for His many blessings, let us not forget those in our community and around the world who are less blessed than ourselves. Please do whatever you can this season to help those unfortunate individuals, be it with monetary donations, gifts of food or clothing or offering your time to help with some charitable event. Remember what Jesus said “Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” May God bless you and yours as you bless others.
The Annual Polish Picnic last Sunday was a great success! Thanks to all of the volunteers for their tireless efforts be it in making food, helping the day of the picnic, financial support, donations or whatever else they may have done. God bless all of you. Special thanks to our picnic chairperson, Jay Rowe, for another great outcome.
The date of the Picnic is fast approaching (August 13th). Please remember to spread the word to all you know and come in contact with.

And don’t forget to sign up to volunteer to help work the picnic. Sign up sheet is on the table in the vestibule.
I hope to see everyone there.
The Polish National Catholic Church sets aside June as Sacred Vocations Month. The Polis National Catholic Church, much like all denominations, suffers from a shortage of priests and deacons to serve the needs of the faithful. Many more are needed. Please remember to pray ever more fervently during this month that the Lord God Almighty will call more men to His service and that they may hear Him and answer His call.
We will be holding a Service of Remembrance honoring the brave veterans who gave so much in the service of our country on Sunday, May 28th at 12:00 Noon at the Saint Stephens Cemetery at 1200 Broadway Boulevard, Kenhorst, PA 19607. Guest speaker Lt. Col. Travis Shick. Please join us as we say “Thank you. May you rest in peace. We will never forget.”
During the Month of May we give special attention to the Blessed Virgin Mary. We will pray the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary after each Mass each Sunday this month as we beseech the Mother of Our Lord to intercede with the Father and her Beloved Son on our behalf. I urge each of you to spend a few moments each day in reflection, asking her for her prayers and remembering her sacrifice.
In these trying times, I urge you to take comfort and draw joy from the eternal Easter message, He is risen! He is risen, indeed! Alleluia!
Christ’s glorious resurrection is what being a Christian is all about and today is when we sing aloud our happiness and joy. For it is through Jesus’ eternal, perfect sacrifice on the cross that we are made whole, our sins forgiven and the promise of eternal life is bestowed upon us. All we need to do to reap this greatest of all gifts is to believe in Him, our Lord and Savior, and to follow His teachings as He leads us on the road to the Heavenly Kingdom.
Please, be strong, take care and stay well as we once again join together as the one Body of Christ to sing praise, honor and glory to His most Holy Name.
From Fr. Sr. Donald, Danielle and your parish Committee:
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
