St. Agatha Parish exists primarily to serve the spiritual needs of those of the Polish language and ethnicity living in the St. Louis area.  We live our faith in union with the Supreme Pontiff and the Archbishop of St. Louis.  While living in American society, we celebrate our heritage of rich cultural traditions.  Through the intercession of Our Lady of Częstochowa, the Queen of Poland, and St. Agatha, the patron of our Parish, we seek to fulfill our calling in Jesus Christ by living out our Catholic faith in love, justice and peace.

SUMMER 2022

 

 

JULY – MONTH DEDICATED TO THE PRECIOUS BLOOD OF JESUS

The devotion to the Most Precious Blood of the Lord is upheld in the Holy Scriptures, where the blood of martyrs is praised, especially the Blood of Jesus Christ. To this day, there are churches dedicated to the Precious Blood of Christ. Just as Corpus Christi is a continuation of the reverence devoted to the Eucharist of Holy Thursday, the devotion of the Precious Blood of Jesus is a recollection of Jesus’ shed Blood on Good Friday.

 

Blood of Christ, strength of Confessors, Save us.

 

 

JULY  25 – ST. CHRISTOPHER

 

THE MOTORISTS PRAYER

Grant me O Lord a steady hand and watchful eye.  That no one shall be hurt as I pass by. Thou gravest life, I pray no act of mine may take away or mar that gift of Thine.  Shelter those, dear Lord, who bear my company from the evils of fire and all calamities.

Teach me to use my car for other’s need;

Nor miss through love of undue speed

The beauty of the world; that thus I may

With joy and courtesy go on my way.

St. Christopher, holy patron saint of travelers, protect me.

And lead me safely to my destiny. Amen.

 

ST. ANNE  & ST. JOACHIM ARE THE PARENTS OF THE VIRGIN MARY AND GRANDPARENTS OF JESUS CHRIST

July 26 - Feast day - Saints Anne & Joachim- an opportunity to participate in the Mass and share Christian and Polish cultures with your grandchildren; a day of reflection focusing on Saints Anne and Joachim, followed by a family meal.

 

SAFE JOURNEY AND VACATION

Let us entrust those who are leaving for vacation to the hands of the Lord. Let us pray that He will give them a prosperous journey and that as they travel they will praise Him in all His creatures; that they will experience God's own goodness in the hospitality they receive and bring the Good News of salvation to all those they meet; that they will be courteous toward all; that they will greet the poor and afflicted with kindness and know how to comfort and help them.

  *   *   *

During this vacation time, may God lead you toward peace, and make you reach your desired destination in life, filled with gladness and peace. Amen.

 

PLEASE MARK YOUR CALENDAR

 

AUGUST 15  -  SOLEMNITY OF THE ASSUMPTION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY. - Mary is “blessed” because – totally, in body and soul and for ever – she became the Lord’s dwelling place. Mary does not merely invite our admiration and veneration, but she guides us, shows us the way of life, shows us how we can become blessed, how to find the path of happiness. (from Pope Benedict XVI’s August 15, 2006 homily).

 

August 22 - The Queenship of Mary - we honor Mary as a Queen of Heaven and Earth. Mary has been given the title Queen of Peace. Queen of Peace, lead us to Peace.

 

August 26 - The Feast Day of Our Lady of Częstochowa. Mass in Polish will be celebrated at 7:00 PM.
