FROM THE DESK OF FR. BONA: (1) At. St. Elizabeth Shrine we are celebrating our last bilingual Mass today. I know that it is a sad experience for many of us, but we are not leaving the St. Elizabeth behind. Occasionally, we will return to celebrate Mass there and get together as a community. Thank you to all of you who are helping at this time of transition. There is still a lot of work left to make the church, rectory and everything ready to hand over.

(2) All the registered parishioners of St. Elizabeth automatically became members of the new St. Emeric parish on August 14th. Since we continued to have two worship sites, for practical purposes I have kept the administration of these two sites separate. Now that we are going down to one main worship site, we are merging and centralizing the different aspects of administration. Thus, for example, I will be merging the list of the parishioners of St. Elizabeth with the list of St. Emeric. We have some envelopes available for those who would like to have envelopes for the rest of the year. Please contact Ildikó Peller after the Sunday Masses here at St. Emeric to obtain envelopes. She will be in St. Stephen’s Room (the northwest corner of the church).

(3) Just a reminder. Since St. Emeric parish will lease the shrine to Institute of Christ the King the Sovereign Priest and no longer will administer the daily operations, the parishioners coming from St. Elizabeth Shrine, please, make out the checks to “St. Emeric Church.” The trust fund established for the support of the St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church will continue and is restricted to capital improvements to the shrine church. In the future, I will publish information for those who would like to donate to that fund.

(4) Next Sunday, September 24, we will be together as one community at Mass for the first time. (Please, see below the announcement about the changed Mass schedule.) I know that St. Emeric church is familiar to many. After the Mass next week, we will have agapé, a get together in the St. Emeric Hall for fellowship and especially to welcome St. Elizabeth parishioners, who will be making St. Emeric their new spiritual home.

NEW MASS SCHEDULE BEGINS SEPTEMEBR 24: IMPORTANT!!! After consultation and hearing the feedback, we will have the following Mass schedule. On Sunday, there will be a 9AM Mass in English and 11AM Mass in Hungarian. 5PM Mass on Saturday will remain as is.

OLD BULLETINS: By our south doors (facing the Westside Market parking lot, by the flags) I will be keeping the bulletins from the previous week. I know that sometimes you may not be able to come here and still would like a physical copy from the previous week.
