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.
