Dear Brothers and Sisters,
My prayers are with those affected by the hurricane, especially in Cape Fear and Brunswick Counties who took the brunt of Isaias. Some also suffered from several tornadoes. May the Lord give them strength and consolation in this time of testing.

I would like to congratulate Fr. Chesco who will be celebrating the 40th Anniversary of his Ordination to the Priesthood on August 7th. He is an exemplary priest and a prayerful  person with a heart of gold. Our hearts are full of gratitude for having him in our beloved Basilica.  May the Lord Jesus always guide him and the Mother of God watch over him.

Fr. Chesco will be presiding over the Mass on Sunday at 12 pm.

With continued prayers,
Fr. Ryszard
