About St. Casimir’s

Bishop Edward Kmiec established The Church of St. Casimir in March of 2011, highlighting its resilient stewardship, the reverence of its people, and the unique Byzantine-style church (Buffalo Historic Landmark 1977). The parish itself was founded in 1890. Our former pastor, Rev. Anthony Majewski’s vision, “to raise the spirits of believers to spiritual greatness” was realized by artisans Chester Oakley and Joseph Fronczak in the church, an architectural masterpiece. It was dedicated on May 5, 1929 and paid for during economically strenuous times. Rector of the Church is Rev. Czesław Krysa.

Our Ladies Street Fair and Heritage Blessing Thank You

 

Dearest, valued, and appreciated Members and Friends of St Casimir.

PJC!

You all displayed your best to throw Mama Mary a most unique and inspiring birthday party.  During each of the last eight days of Table Talk with Mama I have enjoyed placing each of you, hosts and hostesses, as well as our youthful guests and senior tradition bearers, who joined in on faith fun.  This is how 2,000+ of Catholic believers practiced healing, inspiring fun, and spirituality with “hands and feet” (Polish proverb) as well as heart and soul.

It was so restorative and vibrant to see children among balloons, gals and guys in Polish and renaissance costume, pennants, flowers, music, and pin wheels playing at Mama Mary’s feet, while not forgetting to pray at the Table you set with summer color, health, nourishment and kneel before her Son along with the knighted Hussars, a general with Black Madonna shield, the Harvest Princess and loaf, and the most holy of all bread, that of angels, Jesus’ Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity.

The Ladies received anointing with rose oil, the gentlemen an armored prayer begging Our Lady’s protection.

Continue to draw Inspiration and motivation from such a unique, explosion of divine light, color, souls, and hearts, and grace which the Prince of the Poor presented to his Lady Mary, and she to God.  Donations for the food pantry were much more than ever expected. More on this when we gather to highlight the manifold goodness of the prep and days and suggest concrete actions to better this first-ever faith-fun, evangelizing endeavor.

Plz take some time to revisit the blessing we and the participants received.  Suggest, in the right column way we could make things easier, clearer, or streamlined, maybe even a new endeavor for next year.  Please do this soon before the “weaknesses” begin to blur the great blessings received.  We so much need to count our blessings, even write them down daily. Plz download OurLadyStreetFair_HarvestBlessing_List , fill out blessings and return by Sept 7th to stcasimirbuffalo@gmail.com. After I compile your RSVPs, we’ll gather to discuss in the Social Hall at 6:30pm, Wednesday September 15, 2021, the Seven Sorrows of Mary.

Going to the St John Paul Papal Prayer Room now to offer Mass on this the Feast of the Black Madonna, and final day of Table Talk with Mama, for all the intentions received and for all who made time to “throw” Mama Mary of Czestochowa, a Street Fair Birthday and be there to celebrate the Assumption of the Queen of Heaven’s Harvest.
