A Message from Father Gary

Dear Parishioners,

We have been so fortunate during this Pandemic – our parishioners have been so generous in continuing to give.  We are grateful.

However, we still need to generate monies to continue all the programs we support at our parish.  I recently had a meeting with the chairpersons from many of our fundraising activities to see if we could come up with a plan to continue with our fundraising, keeping the current conditions and requirements in mind.  And boy did we come up with some interesting ideas…

The following are some ideas we are looking into:

  • Pierogi Sale (August 1)
  • Mini Mega Tickets (selling tickets through December, drawing on Christmas)
  • Night out at Webster’s – with a % of sales being returned to the parish
  • Polish Platter Dinner (October)
  • Old World Cookie Shoppe (December)
  • Pork Chop Dinner (January)
  • Spaghetti Dinner (February)
  • Fish Fry (March)
  • Ham Dinner (April)
  • Cinco de Mayo (May)
  • Festival / Mega Drawing / 5K Race (August)

All of dinners would be drive thru’s -we would pre-sell tickets for these dinners. Once we have concrete details we will share – hopefully one of these will be something you are interested in and will offer to help.

Again, I am humbled by your support not only for me but for our OLC parish.

Please welcome our Sisters’ by “showering” them with some love!

How?  By throwing them a housewarming shower to help stock their new home.  It is difficult to know what their needs may be but we can help by sending them gifts in the form of gift cards from local stores.

Some suggestions are cards from Tops, Wegmans, Budwey’s Market in the Square, Target or Bed, Bath & Beyond.

Please bring your gifts to the Ministry Center or place them in the Sunday collection.

If you have any questions, please contact Debbie Kwarciany @ 693-3822 or kwarc4@roadrunner.com

Upon This Rock:

We received $11,288.68 for our July 2020 payment from Upon This Rock.  It continues to be very important that pledges are honored so we will continue to receive future payments.

We replaced the entrance to the old rectory and the outside basement door to the old rectory.  We also updated the old rectory as it is now the OLC Convent for the Sister Servants of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  It was necessary to purchase appliances and update most areas with 21st century appeal.  The old rectory is charming, the woodwork is beautiful but the updates were needed!

We are hopeful with future money to continue to work on our wish list: painting the interior of the church, repairing the back parking lot, new windows for the school, chairs for the parish hall.  There is and always will be a need to upgrade and /or improve our complex.

Once again, your continued support is critical to Our Lady of Czestochowa – thank you for your support to Upon This Rock.
