Mass has moved to St. Peter’s Prep until further notice.

While our Church ceiling is being repaired, Our Lady of Czestochowa will hold the 5:00 p.m. Saturday and the 10:00 a.m., 12:30 p.m., and 7:00 p.m. Sunday Masses at the O’Keefe Commons building at St. Peter’s Prep, located on the corner of Van Vorst and Grand Streets.   Please use the Van Vorst Street entrance.

Sunday 8:00 a.m. Polish Mass and weekday 12:30 p.m. Masses will be held in our Church Hall, which is to the left of the Church, through the gate and down the stairs. 

Thank you to St. Peter’s Prep for their generosity in hosting us. 

And please pray for a quick and complete resolution to this situation.

Mass Remembrances

Finding peace when you’ve experienced the death of a family member or friend can be difficult.  Likewise, it can be hard to console someone who has lost a loved one.  We need comfort and prayers, and want to do something meaningful.  Flowers are beautiful, but short-lived.  How can we help keep alive memories of a loved one who has died?

We’re not helpless in the face of our grief.  Having a Mass celebrated for a beloved person brings comfort and consolation.  You can schedule a Mass for the person’s birthday, the anniversary of their passing, or around a holiday.  His or her name will be announced at Mass and printed in the weekly bulletin as a lasting remembrance.   But most important, a Mass – the highest form of Catholic worship – will be said for the deceased’s soul and our congregation will pray for him or her.  

You can also have a Mass celebrated for a living person, including yourself.  Occasions might include illness,  thanksgiving for a blessing, or any other special intention.

To arrange a Mass, please stop by the Parish Office next door, call us at 201 434 0768, or send an email to bulletin@olcjc.org.    The donation is $20 for a weekend Mass or $10 for a weekday Mass.
