         Our Appreciation to the Families of Rosemary Guinzy, Kay Winka and Joann Pelka Green 


As we continue to pray for the happy repose of the souls of Rosemary Guinzy, Kay Winka, and Joann Pelka Green, be it known to the parishioners of St. Michael the Archangel Church that the families of Rosemary Guinzy donated $1640.00 to the Cemetery Fund and $25.00 to the Church Fund; Kay Winka, $2305.00 to the Cemetery Fund and Joann Pelka Green, $80.00 to the Cemetery Fund all in memories of these our dear members who departed this life for eternity in God.  Thank you so much for including the well-being of our parish in your good wishes for them.  May God comfort you with the sure hope of resurrection when we shall all rise in the Lord to part no more.  Masses will be celebrated in due time for them as requested by their families and friends.   



St. Charles Appreciation:  As the summer ends, the fall begins and the winter lays not long from the horizon, let me thank in a very special way on behalf of the parishioners of St. Charles Borromeo these our parishioners who sacrificed their time, materials and talents to mow our parish grounds at no cost: Jack Boczek, Greg Zmudzinski, Curtis Bochantin, Jim Boczek, Richard Majewski and Ron Lynch.  What a big show of interest and sodality to common good.  With the continued rain fall that delayed even the usual sowing period, the grasses kept growing and these our parishioners kept pace with the task required to keep the grasses low, and the church premises looking good.  May God who sees all things bless and reward you fittingly.  You not only save us cost, you inspired us with example of faith in action.  As I thank them, I request for more volunteers to lessen the burden on them.  Please contact Jack Boczek or Greg Zmudzinski if you wish to help, even if it be once or twice a month.  Again, thank you.  Fr. Oliver Nwachukwu, Ph.D.
