Chrystus Zmartwychwstal! Christ is Risen!

Dear Parishioners and friends of Saint Mary’s:

We continue the Easter Season this Sunday with the Feast of Divine Mercy. Saint John Paul II when he canonized Saint Faustina on the second Sunday of Easter in April, 2000, proclaimed henceforth that this Second Sunday would be the Feast of Divine Mercy in the universal Church. It is a great day of grace for all who seek  God’s Mercy and are reconciled through the Sacrament of Penance. I am grateful to Fathers Tom Lathigee and Roman Duszanowskyj for taking my place at this Sunday's Masses as I minister to the Polonia in Portland. Sincere thanks to all who generously contributed to the Holy Week and Easter Collection. Our Rebuilding Fund especially benefited from the donations from the Diocesan Inner-Parish Loan Fund and the Knights of Columbus Council.


PREP CLASSES RESUME TODAY. Fr. Rich’s class will join Toni(Mary) LaRusic’s class this Sunday.

HOLY HOURS FOR THE FEAST OF DIVINE MERCY: To be held today at nearby parishes:  Holy Redeemer at 2:30 pm, St. Theresa at 2:00 pm

NOMINATIONS FOR RADA: A communique regarding nominations for the Parish Rada will be read after Holy Communion.

MOTHER'S DAY HIGH TEA: Join us for the "Tadeusz Tea", a unique blend of Polish and British traditions. Wear your finest hats. Enjoy Polish and British desserts. Our servers will be characters from "Pan Tadeusz", the epic poem by Adam Mickiewicz about love and intrigue in two noble families. This event builds on the success of our past teas in the "Downton Abbey" style. This fund-raiser will be held on Sunday, May 7th, 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm at the Polish Village Hall. Tickets are $15.00 and are available from Nicole Baker (902) 371-5088. Proceeds to support Phase 2 of the rebuilding of St. Mary's Polish Church.

ŚWIĘCONKA: Please plan on attending next Sunday’s (April 30th) "Święconka” Post Easter Brunch that will be held for the first time in our Sala 1050. The list of parishioners asked to bring a dish or platter to share are: Frania Ardelli, Marjorie & Shirley Ardelli, Vicky Aucoin, Edyta Baczyk, Stefie Black, Evelyn Wojcik, Janet Hawthorne, Micka DiPienta, Marilyn & Joe Gillis, Marianne Gillis, Larry Gniewek, Tony Gniewek, Carolyn Kiley.    Please remember a gift to Loaves and Fishes also!
