Dziesiąta Niedziela zwykła / Tenth Sunday of Ordinary Time

TODAY’S MASS INTENTION is for Mary & Peter Baryluk offered by Marilyn & Joe Gillis. Wieczny odpoczynek racz Im dać, Panie, a swiatłość wiekuista niechaj Im świeci. Niech odpoczywają w pokoju. Amen.

TODAY’S RESPONSORIAL PSALM: Sławię Cię, Panie, bo mnie wybawiłeś [I will sing your praises, Lord, for you have saved me.] Pronunciation: Sw-a-vee-e-w / ch-e / pa-nee-e / bo /m-nee-e / vi-ba-vee-we-sh

Eucharistic Minister for today: Marilyn Gillis

Ushers for collection today: Toni LaRusic, Tony Melski

TRANSLATION OF PART OF TODAY’S FIRST READING – 1 Kings:  “O Lord, my God, let the life breath return to the body of this child.” The Lord heard the prayer of Elijah;
the life breath returned to the child’s body and he revived. Taking the child, Elijah brought him down into the house from the upper room and gave him to his mother. Elijah said to her, “See! Your son is alive.” The woman replied to Elijah,“Now indeed I know that you are a man of God. The word of the Lord comes truly from your mouth.”

TRANSLATION OF PART OF TODAY’S SECOND READING – PAUL TO THE GALATIANS: I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that the gospel preached by me is not of human origin. For I did not receive it from a human being, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.



WEDNESDAY MASSES are on hold while we rebuild. Please note that Father Paul leads the Novena to Our Lady of Czestochowa every Sunday before Mass (starting at about 8:40 a.m.), except during Lent. Copies of the Novena are at the back of the church.

Sunday, June 12, 9:00 a.m. . The Mass intention will be for Tadziu & Michael Baryluk offered by Marilyn & Joe Gillis.

“IMIENINY” (NAME DAYS) FOR THE COMING WEEK. Help to maintain a longstanding Polish Catholic tradition by acknowledging relatives, friends, and colleagues who are celebrating their “name day,” corresponding with the feast day of a saint of the same name.  Where there is more than one saint of the same name who has been assigned a day, your “name day” is the one closest to your birthday. It is customary in the Polish tradition to acknowledge the name day of a relative or friend:
June 5: Dobromir
June 6: Dominika, Norbert, Paulina
June 7: Antoni, Paweł, Robert
June 8: Maksym, Seweryn
June 9: Felicjan
June 10: Edgar, Małgorzata
June 11: Feliks
June 12: Antonina, Jan
