Join us in praying for the souls of our dearly departed on Sunday, October 30 in the age old Polish tradition of visiting the cemetery around All Saints and All Souls Day.
At 3 p.m. a Mass for All Souls will be celebrated by Fr. Czesław Krysa in the Resurrection Mausoleum. During Mass, there will be a reading of “Wypominki” (names of our dearly departed). Following Mass, we will visit graves of family and friends.
Beginning at 2 p.m, special Polish cemetery candles will be available in the Mausoleum, along with information about Polish family research provided by the Polish Genealogical Society of N.Y.S.
Please let us know if you’re coming to the cemetery and if you’d like to purchase a special candle or an insert for a candle. If you are out of town, we can light a candle for you for a donation to the Polish Legacy Project.
You are most welcome to participate even if you do not have anyone buried at St. Stan’s.
