ST. STANISLAUS BISHOP & MARTYR PARISH
May 20, 2018 – PENTECOST
The descent of the Holy Spirit is considered the beginning of the Church. God was revealed in the Old Testament, the Son taught personally on Earth, and his ministry was crowned by the Pentecost he promised.
When interpreting the Bible, the Pentecost, when the apostles began speaking in different languages, is often combined with the confusion of languages in the construction of the Tower of Babel. At the time of exile, humanity managed to symbolically overcome all barriers and reunite in the Holy Spirit. A similar thought is expressed by Saint. Paweł, writing: “there is no longer a Greek or Jew”. Soon all nations and all languages will gather around the apostles.
The day of the Pentecost, also known as Pentecoste, colloquially Pentecost, is a moving holiday in Christianity, and it is 49 days (7 weeks) from the Sunday of the Lord’s Resurrection, and therefore also on Sundays. Hence the entry in the liturgical books of the Sunday of Pentecost.
May 13, 2018 – ASCENSION OF THE LORD
The Ascension is the crowning and ending of the earthly life of Jesus and his
triumph. Ten days after the Ascension, Christians celebrate the Exile of the Spirit
Holy. Jesus spent 40 days after his resurrection among his disciples. After that
time, the Apostles went together to the Mount of Olives (they do not give this place to the gospels, only tradition). In the presence of the disciples, Jesus rose up and disappeared.

March 31, 2018 – Holy Saturday
In the Roman Catholic Church, this day is a day of calm and waiting for the coming of Christ. From the early morning hours, Catholics adore the Blessed Sacrament in a chapel called the Lord’s Tomb prepared for this purpose. Traditionally, the Altar servers, scouts, and sometimes firefighters watch the Lord’s Graves.
This is the time of mourning for the crucified Jesus Christ. It is also an opportunity to take advantage of the sacrament of penance. Traditionally, on this day, food is blessed on the Easter table.
1:00 – 3:00 PM Blessing of Easter food in Church at 15 minute intervals/Bendición de canastas
6:00 PM Solemn Easter Vigil – – Bi-Lingual (English, Polish,)
8:00 PM Vigilia Pascual (Spanish)
March 30, 2018 – Good Friday
Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, and Black Friday.
The Catholic Church regards Good Friday and Holy Saturday as the Paschal fast, in accord with Article 110 of Sacrosanctum Concilium. In the Latin Church, a fast day is understood as having only one full meal and two collations (a smaller repast, the two of which together do not equal the one full meal)– although this may be observed less stringently on Holy Saturday than on Good Friday – and on which the faithful abstain from eating meat. This is why many places have the typical ‘Fish Friday’. In countries where Good Friday is not a day of rest from work, the afternoon liturgical service is usually put off until a few hours after the recommended time of 3 pm.
3:00 p.m. – Celebration of the Lord’s Passion

Palm Sunday – March 25
This feast was established in memory of Christ’s arrival in Jerusalem. It begins the period of spiritual preparation for the feast, which is a calmness, concentration and experiencing the Passion of Christ. The first known records about the holiday come from the Egeria pilaster log, and are dated to the eighties of the 4th century. From Jerusalem, the Palm Sunday procession spread to the countries of the Christian East. Palm Sunday has been celebrated in Poland since the Middle Ages, in the USA this custom is being taught. According to the ordinances of the day, the faithful bring to their church palemki, a symbol of the reviving life.
From 1986, according to the will of Pope John Paul II, the World Youth Day is also celebrated on Palm Sunday.
February 14, 2018
Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting, is the first day of Lent in Western Christianity. It occurs 46 days (40 fasting days, if the six Sundays, which are not days of fast, are excluded) before Easter and can fall as early as February 4 or as late as March 10. Ash Wednesday is observed by many Western Christians, including Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, and some Baptists.
Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of blessing ashes made from palm branches blessed on the previous year’s Palm Sunday, and placing them on the heads of participants to the accompaniment of the words “Repent, and believe in the Gospel” or “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
Masses: English – 7:00 a.m., 6:00 p.m. Polish – 8:00 a.m., 7:00 p.m. Spanish – 8:00 p.m.

Bless all families this Christmas. Help us all to remember
thisseason that you chose to come to us as a humble baby.
You chose to be part of a family yourself and came, not to be served,
but to serve and one day die for love of those who hated, deserted,
and killed you. On this Christmas day, may we always remember
amid the joys, family and presents, the reason we have this season:
That you, the Eternal Son of God came to live among us as one of us
and as a member of our human family.
