All Saints solemnity

On All Saints Day masses in our church will be celebrated on the following hours: 9 AM and 6.30 PM in English and 6.30 AM, 7 AM, 11 AM and 8 PM in Polish. Join us.
All Saints Day, the day on which Catholics celebrate all the saints, known and unknown, is a beautiful feast. It arose out of the Christian tradition of celebrating the martyrdom of saints on the anniversary of their martyrdom. When martyrdoms increased during the persecutions of the late Roman Empire, local dioceses instituted a common feast day in order to ensure that all martyrs, known and unknown, were properly honored. The current date of November 1 was instituted by Pope Gregory III (731-741), when he consecrated a chapel to all the martyrs in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome and ordered an annual celebration. This celebration was originally confined to the diocese of Rome, but Pope Gregory IV (827-844) extended the feast to the entire Church and ordered it to be celebrated on November 1.

ROSARY PROCESSION AT CALVARY CEMETERY

Cyril and Methodius.  We were concerned that there would not be a good turn out since so many people went to the American Częstochowa.  However, as we were driving we noticed individuals as well as small groups walking toward the cemetery.  Only after the clock struck 3:00pm and the procession started that we were able to see how many of us there were.  Continue reading ROSARY PROCESSION AT CALVARY CEMETERY
