Adult Confirmation meets every other Thursday, preparing adults to be confirmed on Pentecost (June 4).

The June Eucharistic All Night Vigil of Reparation and Prayer will be held Friday, June 2, 2017 at Our Lady of Divine Providence – St. Casimir Church (Bremen & Clarke). Confessions are from 7:00-8:00 pm and after each priest speaker. The Vigil’s opening Mass begins at 8:00 pm, followed by Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament all evening, talks on the vigil theme, rosaries and various other devotions. The Vigil is open to the public. Come spend one hour or stay all night if you can.
These All Night Vigils began in September of 1965 to answer our Lady’s call at Fatima to pray and do penance for world peace and for the conversion of sinners. The Vigil concludes with Mass at 5:00 am on Saturday, June 3. Please call Mike at 254-2790 with any questions.
Colectivo Coffee, which we sell after Mass on the first weekend of every month to benefit our friends at San Ildefonso parish in Tenejapa, Chiapas, Mexico, will again be sold after each of the Masses on the first weekend of June (June 3-4). An act of faith in every cup! Thanks for your support of our sister parish.
