CEMETERY CARE:   Our thanks to Mary Ann Chmiola for her donation to our Parish cemetery fund in memory of the Woss and Humuka families. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. 

The following prayer should be recited every day to obtain the most powerful patronage of the Blessed Virgin. 

Most Holy Immaculate Virgin and my Mother Mary, to Thee, who art the Mother of my Lord, the Queen of the world, the Advocate, the Hope, and the Refuge of sinners; I have recourse to Thee today, I, who am the most miserable of all. I render Thee my humble homage, O great Queen, and I thank Thee for all the graces Thou hast conferred on me until now; particularly for having delivered me from hell, which I have so often deserved. I love Thee, O most amiable Lady; and for the love, which I bear Thee, I promise to serve Thee always and to do all in my power to make others love Thee also. I place in Thee all my hopes; I confide my salvation to Thy care. Accept me for Thy servant, and receive me under Thy mantle, O Mother of Mercy. And since Thou art so powerful with God, deliver me from all temptations, or rather obtain for me the strength to triumph over them until death. Of Thee I ask a perfect love for Jesus Christ. Through Thee I hope to die a good death. O my Mother, by the love which Thou barest to God, I beseech Thee to help me at all times, but especially at the last moment of my life. Leave me not, I beseech Thee, until Thou see me safe in heaven, blessing Thee and singing Thy mercies for all eternity. Amen. So I hope. So may it be.


Another season will soon begin
Fall is in the air once again
Rosy apples and pumpkins bright
And songbirds taking flight.

There was a nip in the wind today
The blackbirds are on their way
Soon beauty will abound
As fall flowers bloom all around.

As summer takes her leave
Colorful trees will soon appear
September holding a promise
A new season is near.The beauty God gives is a treasure
something man cannot measure
Take a look around everywhere
Once again fall is in the air.

The Month of October

Patron: The Blessed Virgin of the Pokrov. 

She is the loving Mother and Protectress of mankind. 

She answers all good and fervent prayers of her children.

October is the month of the Rosary. Why we should pray the Rosary?

The Rosary is the easiest form of prayer. At the same time the Rosary is a most excellent prayer because it is composed of the “Slava Ottsu”, the Otche Nash”, and the “Bohorodytse Divo.” Besides these beautiful and sublime prayers, which compose the Rosary, a short meditation – which constitutes the soul of the Rosary – is added before or during each decade. Thus the Rosary unites in itself mental and oral prayer because we pray and meditate at the same time. The Rosary is the most beautiful flower that, in the course of the centuries, sprang forth from the devotion to the great Mother of Our Savior. 

The Church granted five-year indulgence for the recitation of the Rosary; if said with others, ten years. You may also gain a plenary indulgence, if you recite the rosary before the Blessed Sacrament.
