SACRAMENTAL PROGRAM . . . Children entering the 2nd grade or above who were in a Catholic School or a Religious Education program this past year may register for classes to celebrate the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. Classes will be held every other week beginning in early October. Parents will also attend classes. Classes will take place on Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. and will dismiss at 9:50. This gives you the opportunity to attend either the 8:00 a.m. or the 10:00 a.m. Mass. Masks will be required and social distancing will be observed. Once everyone is registered, I will email a date for the parent meeting and the first class. Second graders who attend St. Casimir School will register through the school and be instructed in the classroom during school hours. If you have any questions or need a registration form please call Molly Hubbard at 410-206-0707. All registrations are due no later than August 30.
RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM . . . Because of Covid19 Religious Education classes for children in grades K,1,3,4,5,6, and 7 will take place at home for the first semester. Parents will have a meeting in the church with the DRE and the grade facilitators and we will explain how the program will work. Hopefully, depending on the status of the virus, we will be able to get back to the classroom setting in January. I have sent a letter to all those who were registered last year. If you have not returned the registration forms please do so asap. If your child is entering kindergarten or was not in our program last year, please get in touch with Molly Hubbard at 410-206-0707 so she can send you the registration forms.

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.
We have been asked to provide bagged lunches for their Tuesday & Wednesday meals a combined total of 350 lunches for the two days.
As such, we have committed to providing 350 bagged lunches every TUESDAY until Beans/Bread can be fully operational again and ask for you help.
The bagged lunches should include:
a meat and cheese sandwich of any kind, any variation, or just meat, or just cheese
Please NO PB&J due to peanut allergies
Any type of bread, however, please NO bread with seeds – (sandwich does not need to be cut) put into sandwich bag or wax paper

The lunches you will provide are surely a gift of kindness to those in need, less fortunate…

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.
