Please consider having a Mass said for your loved one! Remember your loved ones who have passed away, for special occasions (birthdays/anniversaries), and for those who are ill.

Be sure to look at our prayer list in the bulletin…there are many people to pray for! Please remember to pray for those who you promised to, those who have no one to pray for them, and those requests that remain silent out of fear or embarrassment.

What is Centering Prayer? Briefly, Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. (from http://www.centeringprayer.com/)



Gorzkie Zale (Bitter Lamentations) Sundays at 1 p.m. at St Stan’s and at 3 p.m. at St. John Gualbert.



Stations of the Cross Fridays at Saint John Gaulbert, Saint Stanislaus and Corpus Christi at 6 p.m. (Saint Stan’s and Corpus Christi alternate weeks between Polish and English).


How does the Renewal team determine decisions in the Diocese and what do these trends mean for the future? Using the data gathered from parish reports and from parishioners through the Catholic Leadership Institute (CLI) survey that was completed last year, the Renewal team is able to create trends to understand where parishes and the Diocese will be going in the next 5-10 years.
