Celebrating 120 years of Faith!
ASSUMPTION HARVEST BLESSING: On Monday, August 15, the whole Church celebrates the solemn feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. In Poland, the Assumption is also called Matka Boska Zielna – Blessed Mother of the Herbs, or the feast of Our Lady of the Herbs. The Blessed Mother is seen by the Polish as the protector of the earth’s abundance. So as to perpetuate this pious custom in our parish, Fr. Petro will bless the herbs, flowers, fruits and vegetables from your gardens at the weekend Masses of August 13/14. Please bring these items to the sanctuary of the church before Mass and place them on the table by the Blessed Mother altar. After the Prayer of the Faithful they will be blessed.
