PRO LIFE We wish to thank everyone who purchased flowers on Mother’s Day. Your donation totaled $1,672.52. Your generous support of WomanCare Services for the past 5 years has been a great help in keeping their doors open. Now they have merged with “Aid for Women” founded in 1978, located in downtown Chicago and serving the south and west side of the Chicago area. Their merger will better serve women who come to them seeking alternatives to abortion and will save more babies. Thank you again for your continued support. REGISTRATION FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION C.C.D. Families may still return their raffle books to the rectory any time before the Carnival. Please remember that in order to receive credit the envelope must be marked C.C.D. Registration forms for C.C.D. for the 2010-2011 school year are available at the Rectory. Please register early. Volunteer forms to earn your Parish Points are also available at the Rectory. Bingo continues throughout the summer. Volunteers are needed to work the Carnival. Now is the time to earn your parish points. A PRAYER FOR THE ARMED FORCES Almighty God, stretch forth Your might arm to strengthen and protect the men and women of our Armed Forces. As they face myriad of challenges and decisions that each day is destined to bring, may they be anchored by their faith, protected by Your presence and comforted by the knowledge that they are loved by You and by this community of faith. Grant that, meeting danger with courage, and all occasions with discipline loyalty, they may truly serve the cause of justice and peace to the honor of your holy name, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. LET US PRAY For the sick: Ruth Eichmann, Erma Kinzie, Helen Cermak, Sofia Kanser, Mary Sherp, Becky Alter, Lorraine Kritikos, Alonso Hernandez, Marilyn Buchalski, James Ghilardi, Betty Zaremba, Rose Thomas, Robert Paulus, Debra Koch, Don Kupiec, Raymond Trusk, Maryann Sorn, Jr., Cheryl Korosa, Betty Anderson, Carol Mariano, Penny Prokop, Umberto Botta, Mary Ann, Riccio, Catherine Elevicz. For the deceased: Joanna VanVossen, Helena Klimek, David Garner.
FROM FATHER RICH
In a certain parish, the local bishop came to Confirm the candidates. They were all gathered in the center nave and with trepidation waited for the bishop to confirm them. The bishop approached one girl and asked her name. It was Mary. The bishop then said, “Dear Mary, can you please tell me what we say when we make the sign of the cross?” Caught by surprised, she stood in place rather than replying. The bishop helped her by starting “in the name of the Father, and of the Son and …” Finally, Mary responded “and of the Mother” . The bishop then told her: “this is a beautiful name for the Holy Spirit, who is truly like a mother. The Holy Spirit is our Comforter, which means we receive support and protection from Him. The Holy Spirit also remembers our needs, heals us, and strengthens us.” Today our church becomes like the meeting place of the Apostles, in which, along with Mary, we await the outpouring of the Holy Spirit. We thank God the Father and His Son for the gift of the Holy Spirit and we open our hearts to his actions. Next week we will mark the day of national remembrance of our beloved deceased. On Memorial Day there will be special Masses held at a number of cemeteries, for the intercession of all deceased and especially those who gave their lives for freedom and independence and whose graves go unattended or whose final resting place is unknown. Last Monday at St. Constance Parish we celebrated a farewell Mass for Bishop Thomas Paprocki, who was an auxiliary Bishop in Chicago for seven years. Bishop Paprocki was a vicar for Vicariate IV and at the same time he was Cardinal’s delegate for Polonia in Chicago. Bishop Paprocki was nominated as the Ordinary Bishop of the Springfield Diocese. Please pray for Bishop Tom and for a new Bishop who will replace him. I want to thank those who took care of our “Grotto” with St. Albert the Great statue by the State Road, which was dedicated in memory of Rev. Joseph Lynch. The statue and the grotto were cleaned and the flowers that First Communion children brought were planted. It is a very nice spot for little prayer or meditation. We invite and encourage you to visit Rev. Joseph Lynch Memorial Grotto. In two weeks, on Sunday, June 6th we will celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ. When I came to the United States twenty years ago, I participated in the beautiful 40 hours devotions as a sign of our believe in true presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Unfortunately, those beautiful devotions are gone. Some of our parishioners asked me if we can do something special to emphasize the importance of that Feast. We will have an exposition of the Blessed Sacrament at the 10:30 a.m. Mass, indoor procession with the Blessed Sacrament and the Benediction. We invite all who want to be part of this Eucharistic Celebration to join us.
God Bless! Fr. Rich

OD KS. RYSZARDA
W pewnej parafii odbywało się bierzmowanie. Kandydaci oczekiwali w głównej nawie kościoła na podejście biskupa i udzielenie im sakramentu bierzmowania. Biskup podszedł do jednej dziewczynki i zapytał: „Jak masz na imię.” „Maria” odpowiedziała bardzo zdenerwowana dziewczyna. On odpowiedział „Powiedz mi Marysiu, co mówimy, kiedy wykonujemy znak Krzyża Świętego?” Biskup zaczął podpowiadać dziewczynce „W Imię Ojca, i Syna, i ...” „Mamy” dokończyła dziewczynka. „To bardzo piękne określenie dla Ducha Świętego,” zauważył biskup. „On rzeczywiście jak matka, jest Pocieszycielem, to znaczy tym, który zawsze nas wspiera i ochrania od złego. Duch Święty to ten, leczy i umacnia.” Dzisiaj nasza świątynia zamienia się na wieczernik, w którym wraz z Maryja oczekujemy na zesłanie Ducha Świętego. Dziękujmy dziś Bogu Ojcu i Synowi Bożemu za dar Pocieszyciela i otwórzmy szeroko nasze serca na Jego działanie. W poniedziałek, 31-go maja przeżywać będziemy dzień pamięci o zmarłych, który obchodzony jest w Stanach Zjednoczony jako „Memorial Day”. W tym dniu, na wielu cmentarzach będzie odprawiona Msza Święta za wszystkich zmarłych, a szczególnie za tych, którzy oddali życie za wolność i niepodległość a ich mogiły są zapomniane lub nieznane. Przy tej okazji pamiętajmy o modlitwie za zmarłych z naszych rodzin, za tych, którzy zginęli w obronie naszej ojczyzny a szczególnie za ofiary katastrofy lotniczej pod Smoleńskiem. Na Cmentarzu Św. Wojciecha w Niles, gdzie jest pomnik Katyński Mszę Świętą za zmarłych o godzinie 10:30 a.m. odprawi Ks. Biskup Paprocki, który w czerwcu odchodzi do Diecezji Springfield. Ksiądz Biskup Paprocki był Biskupem pomoczniczym w Archidiecezji przez 7 lat i delegatem Kardynała dla Duszpasterstwa Polonijnego. W ubiegły poniedziałek około 50 Polskich Księży i wielu wiernych zgromadziło się w Parafii Św. Konstancji aby pożegnać Księdza Biskupa i podziękować mu za jego Kapłańską i Biskupią posługę wśród Polonii. Prosimy o pamięć w modlitwie za Księdza Biskupa Paprockiego i za nowego Biskupa któremu zostanie powierzona duszpasterska troska o Polonię. Dziękujemy tym ,którzy zatroszczyli się o Grotę Św. Alberta przy ulicy State. Dziękujemy za wyczyszczenie figury, groty i zasadzenie kwiatów. Zachęcamy was do modlitwy i medytacji przy Grocie Św. Alberta. Przypominamy o zapisach dzieci do naszej szkoły katolickiej i na lekcje religii CCD dla dzieci uczęszczających do szkół publicznych. Przypominamy o Święcie Bożego Ciała i zachęcamy do udziału w procesji w niedzielę, 6-go czerwca o godzinie 1:30 p.m.
