We are a parish of the consolidated churches of St. Casimir's,
St. John the Baptist, St. John the Evangelist and St. Joseph's
We are a Eucharistic Community, a people diverse in background united together as Catholic Christians around the altar of the Lord. We are nurtured by the Sacraments and sustained by prayer. Our mission is to fulfill our Baptismal promises by proclaiming the message of the Gospel in our lives by our commitment to faithfully love and serve the Lord and one another.

This Week in the Parish
MONTHLY HOME VISITATIONS
Monsignor Bendik and Father Tomczak, along with a number of Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, visit with the homebound and bring Communion during the first week of the month. If you or a loved one are unable to attend Mass and would like to receive Communion at home, please contact the Parish Office to be placed on our Monthly Visitation List.
We thank the unsung heroes of our parish who are willing and eager to be of assistance whenever they are called upon to fulfill the needs of a particular ministry or activity of our parish. It has been our experience, that whenever someone is called to serve in a particular capacity, they invariably respond with a resounding "YES!" You are an inspiration to all of us who serve on your Pastoral Team.
BRING YOUR SWEETHEART AND CELEBRATE VALENTINES DAY WITH US AT NIGHT AT THE RACES
Will be held this year in Seton Auditorium on Saturday, February 14th, with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. You will soon receive a letter asking your support of the Holy Name and Altar and Rosary Society event. You are asked to purchase as many horses as you want at $10.00 each. This allows you free admission to the event where food and refreshments will be featured along with lots of fun. This is an adult only function for our parish. An opportunity will be afforded to sponsor a race "in honor of", "in memory of" or "in support of" a particular business venture. The donation for sponsorship will be $50.00 per race. We look forward to your being there. You do not have to be present to win.
