SACRAMENT OF CONFESSION . . . The sacrament of reconciliation will be held from 4:00 PM to 4:30 PM in the Church before the 5:00 PM Mass on Saturdays.
SUNDAY 5 PM MASS . . . After lots of consideration, the 5:00 PM Mass at St. Casimir Church will NOT return at the current time due to low attendance at the other Masses because of the coronavirus.
LENTEN EASTER BASKETS . . . Last year because of the pandemic and the closing of churches the 160 Easter baskets we had prepared to give out at our 10 AM Mass were donated to the Assisi House to be distributed to needy children. We understand that those were greatly appreciated so once again we will be preparing baskets for those children. There is a table in the back of church which has an Easter Basket starter kit.. Please consider purchasing items and to fill the basket/s and returning it NO LATER THAN March 20 and 21. Making baskets as a family can be a nice Lenten project to help others. Thank you for your generosity.
LENTEN “GIVING TREE” . . . Our annual Lenten Giving Tree will be in the vestibule with clothing needs for children. Please consider taking one of the crosses on the tree and purchase clothing (Spring/Summer) for children Newborn to Teens. Donations should be returned by March 20/21. They will then be taken to the Assisi House for distribution to families in need. Thank you for your consideration.
FOOD PANTRY AT ST. ELIZABETH . . . Open on Tuesday & Friday from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM.

In this time of crisis, every day more homeless and disadvantaged families come to knock at the doors of our Church. Thank you for your generosity.
BEANS AND BREAD NEED OUR HELP . . . For a number of years St. Casimir parishioners have generously prepared casseroles for Beans & Bread a local soup kitchen, due to COVID 19 Beans & Bread has suspended their casserole program.

The bagged lunches should include:
a meat and cheese sandwich of any kind, any variation, or just meat, or just cheese

THIS IS WHAT REALLY HAPPENS AT THE EUCHARIST (CATHOLIC MASS) . . . Take a few moments to view this video. In a very powerful way it expresses beautifully what it is we do at mass. It is the center of our faith. It is from the Eucharist that we draw our strength and it is the precious gift that Jesus has left us: His very presence. Please join us to adore and worship His presence in the Eucharist on the last Saturday of every month from 3:45 PM to 4:45 PM in the Church.
