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.
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.
Your prayers are requested
for the sick, shut ins and those serving in our military.

5 Sunday of Easter
As I have loved you, so you also should love one another! In our hearts, we know that is impossible to us! Yet with the grace of God and faith in the Lord Jesus, this type of love becomes possible to us. Such love! As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.
It is necessary for us to undergo many hardships to enter the kingdom of God--this saying from the Acts of the Apostles speaks to the same reality. Without the grace of God and faith in the Lord Jesus, we will not have the strength to undergo these many hardships.
Behold, I make all things new. The Book of Revelation tells us what happens to us if we have grace and believe: we are made new. Not only are we made new, everything around us is also made new because we begin to see with eyes of faith, to hear with ears of faith, to live with a new power which is the grace of God.
Why don't we Christians today seem as alive in the faith as were these early Christians? Why does Christianity so often seem weighed down with sin and failure? Why isn't the Church a shining example of Christian behavior? Why can't I seem to be entirely faithful to the Lord? Why doesn't my faith shine forth from me so strongly that others will know immediately the power of God at work within me?
These early Christians were not able to convert everyone. These early Christians also had followers who did not give all that they had to follow the Lord. These early Christians also had sexual misbehavior in their Christian communities.
So what is our faith about? It is about coming to the Lord Jesus and acknowledging that we are sinners, learning to live in that truth and learning how to let God's grace transform us. We ourselves, by ourselves, cannot build a Church for God any more than David was allowed to build a temple for the Lord. It is God who builds the Church. Our task is to be faithful, day after day, trying to live by faith and in grace. When we fail, we ask forgiveness and do not try to hide the truth.
Faith in Jesus Christ in not about success in this world. Faith in Jesus Christ is not about having a Church that is perfect in this world. Faith is about following and continue to follow as best we can. Faith is about relying on Jesus alone, even when we encounter sin and darkness.
My children, love one another. My children, pardon one another. My children, walk in the light of the Lord.
Come Worship with Us!
