Shenandoah Announcements

The borough and the revitalization group Downtown Shenandoah Inc. are asking all business owners and property owners on Main and Centre streets to participate in weekly efforts now through the fall to keep the community clean.

In a DSI release, officials called on owners to “please sweep” their sidewalks on Thursdays, pushing dirt into the gutters.

The borough street sweeper, according to the release, will pick up the dirt on Friday mornings during the early hours.

“We are asking the businesses and the property owners to take pride in our community and make it welcoming to our visitors and tourists,” DSI officials said in the release.

With DSI’s pending multi-million-dollar innovation center to be built in the 100 block of North Main Street and announcements of multiple new and pending business, EMI/ALS and health facility openings and renovations, revitalization officials are focusing on maintaining and enhancing the positive initiatives via a clean community. They also want to trounce negativity by fostering community pride.


The new Father Walter J. Ciszek Chapel in the former Annunciation BVM Rectory, West Cherry Street, is a destination site for the faithful.

The late Father Walter J. Ciszek, a Shenandoah native and native son of St. Casimir Roman Catholic Church, now a sacred worship site of Divine Mercy Roman Catholic Parish, is a candidate for sainthood in the Catholic Church.

Ciszek was imprisoned and detained in the former Soviet Union for more than 20 years, during which he ministered to people despite personal risk. He was released in a “prisoner exchange” between the United States and the USSR in 1963 and welcomed home with a Mass of Thanksgiving in St. Casimir Church, Jardin and Washington streets.

Ciszek also authored two books, “He Leadeth Me” and “With God in Russia.” Ciszek Hall at Fordham University in New York City is named after the Shenandoah native, who died on Dec. 8, 1984, and is buried at the Jesuit Cemetery in Wernersville. His cause for canonization now is in Rome.

The devotional schedule at the new chapel includes: Mondays, 2-4 p.m. chapel open and 3 p.m., Chaplet and Father Ciszek Prayer Group; Tuesdays, 2-4 p.m. chapel open, 3 p.m. Chaplet and Rosary (Spanish/English); Wednesdays, 2-4 p.m. chapel open, 3 p.m. Chaplet; Thursdays, 2-4 p.m. chapel open, 3 p.m. Chaplet; every first Thursday of the month, 6:30 p.m. Father Ciszek Prayer Group; Fridays, 2-4 p.m. chapel open, 3 p.m. Chaplet and Rosary.
