CHAPEL CAFE GRAND OPENING !
The Chapel cafe is now open in Rusovce, Bratislava! It is about 10 minutes walk from the parish church, St. Magdalena. Or, you can drive directly there and park (Balkanska street, 851 10 Rusovce).
It is a rennovated ruined chapel dating back to the 13th century, which was lying in a bad situation until Father Marian Prachar, the parish priest of Rusovce, rennovated it. Proceeds from the cafe go to the Church and a priest is always on call if anyone would like to talk! Thank you Father Marian for this marvelous idea and soure of evangelization !

SPIRITUAL READING WHILE STAYING AT HOME
During this time of the virus and our staying at home, a good saint to reflect upon is Saint Edith Stein (pictured below), an intellectual and contempletive. This would be a good opportunity to imitate her virtues of patience, acceptance of our crosses, and disipline in spiritual reading and study.
In this context, Bishop Robert Barron has some recommendations for spiritual reading for us here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_VJhBBqE5Y
SAINT EDITH STEIN
PRAYER FOR HELP DURING CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
Jesus Christ, you traveled through towns and villages 'curing every disease and illness.’ At your command, the sick were made well. Come now to our aid, during this global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love.
Heal those who are sick with the virus and help them regain their health. Heal us from our fear, which prevents neighbors from working together.
Stay by our side in this time of uncertainty. Be with those who are sick or have died from the virus and their families. Defend them from illness and despair. May they know your peace.
Be with the doctors, nurses, and medical professionals who seek to heal those affected and who put themselves at risk. May they know your divine protection and peace.
Be with the leaders of countries. Give them the grace to act with concern for the people. Give them the wisdom to support solutions to the crisis. May they know your peace, as they work together to achieve it on earth.
Jesus Christ, stay with us as we endure, mourn, persist and prepare. In place of our anxiety, give us your peace. Hear us and heal us.
STAYING AT HOME REFLECTION
Who are we: yesterday and today
It all started in 1993, when a retired Divine Word missionary, Father Frantisek Sirovic SVD, started saying masses at St. Ladislav Church in English. Thereafter, we have been blessed to have diocesan priests serving us, as well as those representing the Divine Word, Jesuit, Redemptorist and Rogationist religious orders.
We in the English speaking community come from all corners of the globe. We are a mix of ethnicities, nationalities and sometimes even denominations and religions. And while you can see Slovaks, Africans, Americans, Asians, British, Dutch, French, Germans, Italians, Spanish, etc. among us, we all sing the same songs and share the same communion. Some of us are permanent residents of Bratislava, others are just passing through and grace us with their presence.
Whatever your circumstances, you are most cordially welcome to join us. Please "click" on the above icons for more information on our weekly programs or contact us at: info (AT) catholic.sk
Looking forward to seeing you!
