Parish Helps Displaced Ukrainians in Poland 
It all started with a couch.  Rev. Richard Sliwinski, pastor of St. Mary Czestochowa Parish in Middletown, was visiting his mother in Konin, Poland, just as Russia began the invasion of Ukraine.

Eucharistic Congress - Two Bus Trips
Join Us on a Eucharistic Pilgrimage Ever since a 2019 Pew Research Center study found that only 31 percent of self- identifying Catholics said they believe that Jesus Christ truly becomes present in Holy Communion, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has been calling for a Eucharistic Revival in the Church.  A core tenet of the Catholic faith is that the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ is truly made present in the Eucharist. But belief in The True Presence has waned in recent years. Cardinal Seán O’Malley invites all the Catholic faithful...
