Grand Opening of St. Josaphat Church 

St. Josaphat will officially reopen with its new Holy Mass schedule on September 13 & 14:

Saturday, Sept. 13 (English Mass) at 5:30pm

Sunday, Sept. 14 (Tridentine Mass) at 9:30am

A reception in St. Josaphat Social Hall will follow both Masses.

St. Josaphat Dinners

The following weekend, on Saturday, Sept. 20, will begin a new season of the popular monthly fundraising dinners. That banquet will be a Polish dinner catered by Polish Village. It will certainly be a sellout, so get your tickets as soon as you can. Dinner prices will change from $10 to $12.

Feast of Our Lady of Czestochowa – August 26

Before the official reopening on Sept. 13, we will have Mass and devotions in St. Josaphat to celebrate the feast day of Our Lady of Czestochowa this Tuesday, August 26.

Liturgy is as follows:

Rosary at 6:30 PM

Holy Mass at 7:00 PM (Ordinary Form in English) followed by Novena to the Black Madonna, Candlelight Procession with Icon of the Black Madonna and Veneration of the Relic of the Veil of our Blessed Mother.

The commemoration of the feast was planned in early August and advertised during the Pierogi Festival in anticipation that the church would be open in mid-August. Therefore it will happen in advance of the Grand Opening.
