MASS OF REMEMBRANCE
ALL SOULS DAY
we invite you to join us  
on Monday, November 2, 2020 at 6:30 p.m.
in St. Hedwig Church


During the month of November, let us pray for all our deceased loved ones who were buried from our parish this past year. We also remember all those who we love and mourn and were buried away from here. May they and all who have died in Christ, find light and peace in the presence of God forever.   WE PRAY TO THE LORD

                                                               

A  WARM WELCOME TO OUR NEW PRIEST
Fr. Tomasz Pietrzak, SChr

Rev. Tomasz Pietrzak SChr, was born in Poznań, Poland. He was ordained to the priesthood in 2006. Until 2016 he worked in Poland (Płoty, Mórkowo, Stargard, Goleniów), then he moved to the North American Province of the Society of Christ, and spent the last four years at the 
Polish Parish of Divine Mercy (Parafia PW. Milosierdzia Bozego) in Lombard, Illinois.

God bless Father Tomasz. Please keep Father in your prayers.

ST. HEDWIG 
  2020    
POLISH FESTIVAL
IS CANCELED! 


We deeply regret to announce the cancelation of the 2020 Polish Festival due
to the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision was not reached easily for a number of reasons. With so much going on and uncertainty with the pandemic and requirements of social distancing, the State of Delaware’s restrictions on gatherings and large crowds, and CDC Guidelines, we thought it would be safer not to have the festival this year.  We look forward to seeing you in 2021.

 


DIVINE MERCY 

At three o'clock, implore My mercy, especially for sinners; and, if only for a brief moment, immerse yourself in My Passion, particularly in My abandonment at the moment of agony. This is the hour of great mercy. In this hour, I will refuse nothing to the soul that makes a request of Me in virtue of
My Passion (St. Faustina Diary, 1320).


Jesus, I trust in you!          Jezu, ufam Tobie!       Jesús, en Ti confío!
