I belong to Saint Casmir’s Roman Catholic Church; my parents, my brother were married in this church. My brother and I were both baptized here as well. This is the first and only church that my grandparents (God rest their Souls) came to when they first came to this country from Poland 50 years ago. One thing hasn’t and I pray will never change: That is the sense of unity and welcome when you are here. I don’t know if I’m alone in this, but all my worries and troubles to disappear while praying and worshipping here.
