Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church in Cestohowa invites all to its annual picnic on Sunday, May 27, at 11 a.m. on the church grounds on F.M. 3191 at C.R. 245 in Cestohowa.

A Mass for all veterans will be held in the church at 10 a.m., followed by a memorial service in the Cestohowa Cemetery.

Barbecue beef and Polish sausage plates will be $8, and served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and a washer tournament is set for 1 p.m. Enjoy bingo from 12-4 p.m., a country store, a cake stand, a refreshment stand, an antique tractor display, children’s games, and more. The big auction will begin at 5 p.m.

The parishioners of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary Church recently rededicated and blessed their grotto. The grotto of “Our Lady of Lourdes” was a dream of former pastor the Rev. Stanislaus Przyborowski. In 1959, under the direction of the succeeding pastor, the Rev. Julius Dworaczyk, the grotto was built by parishioners with funding from Przyborowki’s estate. The inner structure of the grotto, which was recently redone, was originally incorporated from the original town jail.

Inside the grotto is a statue of “Our Lady of Guadalupe,” said to have appeared in the 1500s to a humble Native American (Juan Diego) at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of what is now Mexico City.

Also inside the grotto is a picture of “Our Lady of Czestochowa.” The origin of this miraculous image in Czesthchowa, Poland, is unknown for absolute certainty, but according to tradition, the painting was a portrait of Our Lady done by St. John sometime after the Crucifixion of our Lord, and remained in the Holy Land for about four centuries.

The grotto includes traditional wax candles and offers parishioners and visitors a place to quietly reflect and pray.
