St. Hedwig Parish...

 

Welcomes You

St. Jadwiga Parish welcomes you. 

 


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!

CAROLING UNDER THE SPIRES
Join us on the front steps and sidewalk of St. Hedwig Church for our annual outdoor Christmas caroling on Saturday, Dec. 15th, immediately following the 4:00 p.m. Mass. Parishioners and their families, neighbors and the general public are all welcome. Caroling will start at approximately
5:00 p.m. Immediately following caroling we invite you for light refreshments in the parish hall (beneath St. Hedwig Church). In the event of bad weather (its supposed to rain!), caroling will take place in the Church. Free event and all are welcome.

THE BREAKING OF THE OPLATEK
All parishioners are invited to join us for the Polish tradition of breaking of Oplatek on Sunday, December 16th, at 12:30pm in the parish hall beneath our Church. One of the most beautiful and most revered Polish customs is the “breaking of the oplatek.” The use of the Christmas wafer (oplatek) is practiced not only by native Poles in Poland, but by people all over the world whose ancestors came from Poland. This event is free and all are welcome.

An Advent Prayer
Jesus, you are our hope. Remain with us! You who came from the Father, lead us to him in the Holy Spirit, along the path which you alone know and which you have revealed to us, that we might have life and have it in abundance. Be for us the door which leads us into the mystery of God. Amen.     _ —Pope Saint John Paul II
