SS. Casimir and Emerich Church

As some of you know, our parish is merging with several other churches during 2009. Christmas Eve service was bittersweet, as it is the last Christmas Eve service that will be held in our parish. Many tears were shed during the service, by young and old alike. We stayed after Mass to take some photos. The photo above shows the altar of the church, which was built by Polish immigrants in 1907. Below is a photo of the nativity scene that sits to the left of the altar.

We're sad to see our parish close, but look forward to starting a new parish in a neighboring church. Please keep all the members of the merging parishes in your prayers.
