Live the Liturgy - Inspiration for the Week
Humility, rooted in a true knowledge of ourselves and our willingness to put
the needs of others before us, is the hallmark of the Christian. Being truly humble
allows us to bring a depth of wisdom to our relationships with God and others so
that they can always be in proper order and on proper course.
On Tuesday, August 30th in the auditorium at 6:30 we
are holding our 2016 post Festival meeting. We will offer a
picnic dinner with hot dogs and beans for only $2.00. We
will also have a raffle for those attending.
This meeting is for all our parishioners whether they
worked the festival or not so we hope all will attend. Any
suggestions or ideas are strongly urged. Please plan on

Gospel Meditation - Encourage Deeper
Understanding of Scripture
"When you hold a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the
lame, the blind; blessed indeed will you be because of their
inability to repay you." Today Jesus instructs us to be generous
enough to serve others without expecting repayment. At least,
without expecting to be repaid in THIS life. It's interesting that
the Gospel concludes with Jesus' promise that if we follow this
teaching, we "will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous."
In other words, God will "repay" our generosity on earth by
welcoming us into Heaven. Really, what better investment could
there possibly be? In essence, Jesus tells us to use our money for
the sake of others, not just to assure our own earthly comfort. As
difficult as this request may be, it’s important to remember that
Jesus honors the sacrifice! This is why He promises repayment in
Heaven. He understands that it "costs" us a great deal to part with
the security of using our money for ourselves alone. He
understands that in caring for the poor, we risk putting ourselves
in their company. After all, no bank on earth can possibly provide
the infinite rate of return that Jesus promises.
Dear Parishioners,
Every year on the first weekend of
August, our parish celebrates its Polish
roots with the St. Stanislaus Kostka Polish
Arts Festival. It is a great event for us in
our parish.The festival is a lot of work. It
takes many dedicated, hardworking people to organize, prepare
for and work at for it to be successful. Without these volunteers,
the festival would not be possible. Although the festival was
sprinkled with the waters from the sky above on Friday, thanks
be to God on Saturday the great, gray rain clouds in the sky
above the church missed us and we were able to celebrate and
play late into the night.
To the Festival Committee, I extend words of thanks and
deep gratitude. Thank you for organizing this event and the great
work that you did. A sincere thank you to all the booth captains
and their team of volunteers.
Thank you to those who put up the many booths and
worked on the electricity, lighting and sound system.
A very sincere thank you and deep appreciation to those
who worked in the kitchen for your heavy and exhausting work,
your fatigue and great dedication to the festival.
Thank you to all those who made and prepared the pierogi,
stuffed cabbage, chrusciki, potato pancakes, baked cakes, burgers
and other delicious goodies and to those who brought fresh
vegetables and fruits.
My sincere gratitude to those who sold raffle tickets and
worked at the many games for adults and children. A big thank
you to those who sold souvenirs and other items that highlight the
Polish heritage.
Words of gratitude are also extended to all the valiant
volunteers who came in the very early morning hours on Sunday
to clean the church grounds and put away all the festival
From the bottom of my heart, a thank you to all
parishioners, men and women, teens and children for a great job
and all your help and support.
God bless,
Your pastor… Fr. Roman

Catechists are needed. Please
consider sharing your faith with the
young people of our parish. We are in
need of volunteers willing to help
instruct our children in catechesis. You
do not have to be a teacher to be a
catechist! You only need to be a faith-filled Catholic who is
willing to share that with the kids. We have all the tools you need
to provide great lessons for our children. If the Spirit is calling
you...please call Tony at 467-3068 or email [email protected] I
would love to hear from you. Anyone (including teens) is eligible
to help out in the classrooms as long as they have been confirmed.
Students entering 8th Grade and above this
Fall of 2016 are invited to register for
Confirmation! Confirmation preparation begins
no earlier than 8th grade and is a two year
process of coming to know Jesus and being
formed in discipleship. Preparation involves learning about
different components of the Catholic Faith, including an annual
retreat, a service component, and a few special gatherings especially during immediate preparation. Please call Tony at 4673068 or email [email protected]
Refrigerator Needed - Used (or New!)
We need to replace a refrigerator that stopped
working during the festival. To be in compliance
with the NYS Health Laws we need to replace it with a
refrigerator that has temperature controls. If you have a
used refrigerator, that is clean and in good, working
condition and you would like to donate it, we would be
happy to accept it:) Your donation would save us a lot of money
and provide us with more space to store all our delicious foods
such as pierogi not only during the festival but also for all the
parish events. Please call the rectory at 467-3068 for more

XXII Niedziela Zwykła
Czytanie pierwsze zaczyna się od dania odpowiedzi na odwieczne problemy ludzkości:
jak spotkać się z potężnym Bogiem, bo za takiego wszystkie ludy Go uważały. I o dziwo,
otrzymujemy odpowiedź: pokora. Spotkanie to jest intymne i pełne – jak mówi dzisiejsza
Ewangelia – dlatego miejscem spotkania staje się posiłek spożywany w duchu wdzięczności
względem Dawcy wszelkiego dobra. Tam jednak wychodzi charakter człowieka. Zaproszeni na
ucztę chcą przede wszystkim zaspokoić swój głód władzy i pragnienie bycia w centrum uwagi.
Nie dostrzegają tego, że zachłanne dążenie do tego staje się głodem niemożliwym do
zaspokojenia. Sama ambicja wcześniej czy później zostawi po sobie poczucie pustki a ktoś
obnaży jej niedorzeczność. Zabieganie o pierwszeństwo wyklucza wspólnotę z drugim a
odtrutką na wygórowane ambicje i nieliczenie się z drugim stają się pokora i bezinteresowność.
Tak pojęta służba nie ma nic wspólnego z upokorzeniem czy poddaństwem, bo jej motywem
jest chęć wyświadczenia dobra braciom. Reasumując to, wybieranie pokory w znaku ostatniego
miejsca to najpewniejsza droga do spotkania się z Bogiem. Taką drogą szedł nasz Zbawiciel.
On przyszedł na ucztę z każdym z nas i zaczął od miłości, która służy a mając Ducha Świętego
czynił to z radością. I ten Duch Święty czyni nas nieustannie podobnym do Jezusa, który jest
pierworodnym wobec wielu braci. Takie spojrzenie na Kościół ma w sobie niesłychaną
dynamikę. To sprawia, że widzimy Kościół jak organizm, który musi się nieustannie rozwijać.

The Passion of Saint John the
Baptist—August 29
The great religious reformer was
sent by God to prepare the people for
the Messiah. His vocation was one of
selfless giving.
When the time came, he led
disciples to Jesus and as he watched
Jesus walk by he said:
”Behold, the Lamb of God.”

Pack a Picnic ~ Summer Food Drive!
Donations to the Food Cupboard are lower in
the summer since many people are on vacation.
Hunger, however, doesn’t take a ‘vacation’. Help
the poor and needy to enjoy a ‘stay at home picnic’!
Take a bag, located at each entrance, and fill it with the
items on the list. If you can’t fill a bag, bring in JUST ONE item.
The greatest need during the summer months is JUICE.
In your Christian charity you are asked to remember in your prayers Florence Hoy, whom God
has called to eternal rest. May she rest in peace, and
may the risen Lord strengthen her family at their time of loss.
The 'Lost' May Be 'Found'
The first weekend of every month, items from the 'Lost and
Found' will be placed on the table at the front entrance to the
church. If you find your item, take it home. Any items that are not
'found' that weekend will be donated to charity.
