Annual Celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday

Written by
On Sunday April 7, we celebrated “Divine Mercy Sunday”. We commemorated God’s infinite love and mercy which He continues to pour out to the whole world. This year is a very special year as we celebrate – The Year of Faith. Jesus said to Thomas “Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have come to believe.” To believe in His love, mercy and forgiveness is a great gift and we can call ourselves Blessed-Happy. Divine Mercy Sunday is solemnity celebrated on the Sunday after Easter, the Octave of Easter. It is originally based on the Catholic devotion to the Divine Mercy that Saint Faustina Kowalska reported as part of her encounter with Jesus, and is associated with special promises from Jesus and indulgences issued by the Church. This feast of Divine Mercy, as recorded in the diary of Saint Faustina, receives from Jesus himself the biggest promises of Grace related to the Devotion of Divine Mercy. In specific Jesus states that the soul that goes to Sacramental Confession (the confession may take place some days before), and receives Holy Eucharistic Communion on that day, shall obtain the total forgiveness of all sins and punishment. Additionally, the Roman Catholic Church grants a plenary indulgence (observing the usual rules) with the recitation of some simple prayers.

Sisters

Written by

While celebrating our Jubilee Year, Sisters Maksymiliana and Dawida visited our parishes in London and Toronto, where they spoke at the end of the Masses, about the Congregation, charism and ministry Sisters are engaged in. They also had an opportunity to learn the challenging game of golf, visit Ontario’s landmarks, and from Sep. 21-23 they lead over forty people in a retreat at the Michaelite House Retreat Centre. Even though it was the first trip to Canada, Sisters made an impact where ever they went. Way to go Sisters! We look to the day when the Michaelite Sisters will work and minister in Canada and USA.

Aleksander celebrated a special Mass at Our Lady of Czestochowa on Sept. 9th. Its pastor Fr. Zbigniew Rodzinka was the homilist. It was in this church that our jubilarian was a priest while serving in Canada at the beginning of the seventies. Happy Anniversary Fr. Rector.

Feast of St. Michael

Written by

Every year we have the benefit to celebrate St. Michael’s feast twice. One, at our Retreat Centre on the second Sunday of September and the other one, on the 29th of September, the actual feast of the Archangels. The history of the first celebration goes back to the seventies when Fr. Edvin Mucha started it. Today forty years later it is still being continued and this year, Sept. 9th, had a special meaning as we mark the Jubilee Year. Just before 3 pm on this Sunday afternoon, Fr. Eugene Dziedzic prepared the crowd of near thousand people for the Mass . Bishop Emeritus Mathew Ustrzycki of Hamilton was the main celebrant and our General Superior was the homilist. This annual feast celebration gathered over 30 priests. Among them was Fr. Julian Chmura, of USA. At the end of the Mass, Rector of the University of Lublin, Fr. Antoni Debinski handed a special medal to our Community as a recognition and thanksgiving for our work in Canada and support of CUL. Youth band from Our Lady of Czestochowa played during and after the Mass. It is already a tradition that polish paczki and coffee is being offered for all participants. At the end of the day, we gathered outside to plant a special Jubilee Tree. During our special festive meal, Sr. Dawide read a few of her poems and Fr. Eugene with the Michaelite choir serenaded till late evening.
