Chicken Barbeque Fundraiser by the Czestochowa Youth Group Print E-mail

Chicken Barbeque FundraiserOn October 13th, 2010, the Czestochowa Youth Group held a chicken barbeque fundraiser in the Cafeteria. As the morning of the 13th dawned, members of the Youth Group arrived in the Cafeteria, ready to begin serving food. We put in a full day's worth of work and made the event a great success.

Beginning on August 15th, 2011, and ending on August 23rd, the next upcoming World Youth Day is going to be a terrific week. It will be held in Madrid, Spain, this year, and offers a great chance for our Youth Group to make a pilgrimage to see Pope Benedict XVI. Youth from all over the world make the journey to hear his inspiring message and share their faith with others their own age. This year, we are finally able to go, and we are very excited about the wonderful opportunity we are being offered. As a first step to getting there, we definitely needed to do fundraising. Eventually we decided on a perfect idea offered to us by Bob Kogut, a veteran of the Polish-American Festival for many years. He suggested that we host a chicken BBQ fundraiser at the Shrine. We immediately began work.

The Solemnity of Christ The King, November 21st Print E-mail

So, how can we say that Christ is a King? Where is His royalty? Where is His regalness? What does Jesus do on the Cross? In the context of His own dying, how does he respond?

Jesus reaches out! He turns to another and promises him salvation. Christ, our King, give Himself away totally while he lived on earth. Here surely was the strongest king of all. He was not out to conquer but to convert. He was not out to rule but to serve. He was not out to hoard possessions but to give them away. He devoted all his love, all his time, all his energy to seeking out the sick, the poor, the lost and the lonely. At the end He even gave his life away for those he loved, and He loved everybody. Even as he died he was still giving to those who were receptive. He could not do much for the crowd. They did not really understand what was happening. Most of them were there merely out of curiosity. And of course he could give absolutely nothing to the scoffers - the religious leaders and the soldiers. Nor could He give anything to one of the thieves, for the poor man`s heart had long since turned to stone. But surprisingly He was able to enrich the other thief, the one we refer to since as the good thief.

Uroczystość Chrystusa Króla - 21 listopada Print E-mail

Chrystus Wodzem, Chrystus Królem, Chrystus, Chrystus Władcą nam!Niech będzie pochwalony Jezus Chrystus.

Drodzy radiosłuchacze i przyjaciele Amerykańskiej Częstochowy,

W ostatnią  niedzielę  roku kościelnego, cały Kościół obchodzi uroczystość Chrystusa Króla. Tę uroczystość zapoczątkował Papież Pius XI w 1926 roku, aby przypomnieć ludziom, że żaden z ziemskich królów nie zapewni sprawiedliwości i pokoju na świecie jak tylko Jezus Chrystus. Jeśli ludzkość chce cieszyć się pokojem i ładem, to powinna uznać Chrystusa swoim Królem, a Jego Ewangelię podstawowym prawem, tak motywował Ojciec Św. wprowadzając to święto do Kościoła powszechnego. Przez tę uroczystość Kościół chce nam przypomnieć, że całe ziemskie życie Jezusa było przygotowaniem nas na zrozumienie Jego wielkiej misji królowania na świecie.
