11 Sunday in Ordinary Time​


Ezekiel 17:22-24; 2 Corinthians 5:6-10; Gospel: Mark 4:26-34


A Prayer for Fathers: Most Gracious Heavenly Father, We thank You for our fathers to whom You have entrusted the care and guidance of every precious human life from its very beginning. You have given to man the capacity of participating with You in the nurturing and protection of new life. Grant that every man may come to understand the full meaning of that blessing, which gives him an unlimited capacity for selfless love for every child he may be privileged to father, and for all Your children.
Assist all "spiritual fathers," those who, though they may have no children of their own, nevertheless selflessly care for the children of others—of every age and state in life. Grant that they may know the joy of fulfilling this fatherly calling, whether in teaching, mentoring, religious life, or in other work which recognizes and fosters the true dignity of every human being created in Your image and likeness.
We beseech You to send Your Holy Spirit, the Comforter, to all fathers who sorrow for children that have died, are ill or estranged from their families, or who are in trouble or danger of any kind. Help grieving fathers to rely on Your tender mercy and fatherly love for all Your children.
We ask Your blessing on all those to whom You have entrusted fatherhood. May Your Holy Spirit constantly inspire and strengthen them. May they ever follow the example of Saint Joseph, foster father of Our Lord, and imitate his fidelity, his humility, and his self-giving love. May all fathers receive Your Grace abundantly in this earthly life, and may they look forward to eternal joy in Your presence in the life to come.
We ask this through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

The Polish American Veterans of Lowell MA, including Irene Jarez (far right) donated American flags to place on the graves of Veterans at St. Casimir's Cemetery in Pelham NH. Father Tenus and his children assisted. The hardworking group not pictured includes Bob Ferus, Bob Hunt, Tom McNiff, JoAnn Menzia and Phyllis Hunt, who maintain the grounds and keep the cemetery looking beautiful.


Come, Worship With Us on Sunday


    
You are invited to join us at 10:00 on any Sunday morning to attend Mass at our church. No matter your background, ethnicity, or denomination, we don't look at that. Just people with good will looking for some place to fill out their souls. If you need comfort, a place to pray, this is the place. We do not judge—it's not up to us to judge.  All are welcome.
     The Mass liturgy is celebrated in English and booklets are available for you to  follow the service in comfort. Please come and worship along side the  friendly people of St. Casimir’s.

A Special Announcement...

     We are very thankful for the response we have received from our websie readers! In the very short period of time since we created our site, we have received many messages from you via the Contact Us page with comments and questions about our activities, and requests for information about our church, our cemetery and the PNCC in general.  How wonderful that is! Thank you very much.

      We would like to apologize, however, for our failure to keep the site current.  We have a lot going on at St. Casimir's and our volunteer parishioners are really very busy.  We are working on a plan to maintain the website on a more current schedule and ask your indulgence. In order to make the site even more interesting, we are in the process of redesigning it as yu will see in the coming weeks....please send us your comments as we progress.

Rev. Andrzej Tenus
