We are proud to say that at the turn of the millennium the Polish-American community donated a parcel of land for the creation of a pastoral mission and cultural center serving the Polish faith and culture. The pastoral mission seats 300 people along with a separate room for the children and their parents. In the downstairs section of the pastoral mission there's a meeting place, cultural performance stage, kitchen facilities, a shop and an office space which includes housing for the priest.

God, Our Father, we thank you for giving our homeland Cardinal August Hlond, Bishop and Primate of Poland, and for choosing this great and fervent advocate of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of Your Son and our Mother, as the caring father and protector of Polonia. Be pleased to awaken within my heart both a burning love for You and a filial devotion for our Lady, Help of Christians. For the glory of Your Name deign to to grant, through the intercession of Cardinal August, the grace for which I humbly ask. Our Father... Hail Mary... Glory Be...

MBCZOn Sunday, August 2, we are saying farewell to the icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa. Next the icon will travel to Our Lady of Bright Mount Church in Los Angeles. We will continue peregrination with the small icon the same way we are doing with the Divine Mercy picture in our Mission. Please register at the parish office or sacristy when you would like to take home the picture.


 
Obraz Bozego MilosierdziaSOLEMN ACT OF ENTRUSTMENT OF THE WORLD TO DIVINE MERCY

God, merciful Father, in your Son, Jesus Christ, you have revealed your love and poured it out upon us in the Holy Spirit, The Comforter. We entrust to you today the destiny of the world and of every man and woman. Bend down to us sinners, heal our weakness, conquer all evil, and grant that all the peoples of the earth may experience your mercy. In You, the Triune God, may they ever find the source of hope. Eternal Father, by the Passion and Resurrection of your Son, have mercy on us and upon the whole world! Amen.
