A Message from Father Gary

Dear Parishioners,

Many things have changed since last March, including the way we need to 
attend Mass at OLC.  I thought we might need to revisit some of the changes
we have made over the last few months:

  • Reservations are still necessary for the weekend Mass.
  • Please arrive 15-30 minutes before Mass is scheduled to begin.
    This becomes extremely important when the winter sesason arrives
    as we don’t want you to have to wait outside for any length of time.
  • Once Mass has begun the doors are locked.
  • When you arrive, you will be escorted to your seat by one of the ushers.
    They will also help you when Mass is over.
  • Masks are still required as well as Social Distancing (when entering,
    receiving communion and leaving).

On a positive note: the Merry Money Raffle tickets have SOLD OUT!!!
Tickets for our Polish Platter Take Out Dinne are on sale in the Ministry
Center.  $15 each or 2 / $25 – only 200 dinners will be sold.

We can’t thank you enough for all your support.

 

Shalom…..Fr. Gary

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.
