Community Involvement
The parish supports such community activities as the Kazimierz Pulaski Polish Supplementary School, which teaches language, history and religion to the kids in our parish, while preparing them to receive first communion, and confirmation. We organize an annual parish picnic (500 participants), New Years and Mardi Gras celebrations, and participate in the Gen. Pulaski Parade. Even though so much has been accomplished within the past 10 years, and none of it could have been possible without the active support of our parishioners, there is still much to be done.
Thank You for all your support to our parish!
