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! 


2019 POLISH FESTIVAL
            As in previous years, planning meetings have been taking place over the last few months for the September 2019 Polish Festival.
            In recent days, information has been received by the festival committee that the Riverfront location for the 2019 festival is not available this year. 
           Therefore, due to construction and redevelopment at the Wilmington Riverfront, we are sorry to announce that the Polish Festival will not take place in September 2019.
           For now, the Festival Committee will continue to meet and will be working on developing some smaller events for this year. Please watch for communications in this regard on the website, social media and the parish bulletin.
