I have fond memories of Father Bilicky when he served at Holy Trinity (Polish) parish in Lowell, MA. At the 10:30 Mass, (pre-Vatican II) he would perform the asperges ceremony. He wore a white robe, altar servers at both sides holding the end of the robe. At the Communion Rail he would sing at loud voice "Asperges me" and race us altar servers down the main aisle while sprinkling the faithful in pews with holy water.
Also, in the days of using Latin his diction was crisp and clear, altar servers loved to keep up with his staccato tempo.

Fr. Lou was the best parish priest I could ask for. Thank you for your spiritual, moral, and ethical guidance through the years. Although you could not attend our wedding, your blessing of us before and after the mass meant the world to us. Our St. Casimir's leader is now our guardian angel.

If it wasn't for Father Bilicky my family wouldn't be here today. My great grandfather and Father Lou's mother were cousins. My grandmother and her sister were born in Poland and during WWII their father wrote to Father Lou's mother and asked if there was anyway they could bring his daughters to America. Father Lou was instrumental in getting them here. I can remember as a small child with my parents, grandparents and brothers taking the drive from Salem to Maynard for the Polish Picnics and the Chicken BBQ's that he would hold. He has been called home but will never be forgotten.

Fr Lou may the Lord bless you and reward you. Thank you for your loving and caring service. You have been a comfort to me and my family many times. Thank you for sharing your love and devotion to St Theresa.

In honour of my dear deceased parents, William and Theresa Buckley of Maynard, MA both of whom were dear, dear friends and long-time, devoted parishoners of "Fr. Lou" at his beloved St. Casimir's parish in Maynard, which had an extremely devout and devoted Polish-Catholic faithful, I am writing this remembrance as their daughter on having learned the sad news of Fr. Lou's passing. Fr. Lou is best-remembered by those who knew him well as a TRUE priest, one of the most devout, Holy, and truly pious priests to have ever been ordained in our Catholic Faith; his annual October Novena to his beloved St. Therese, The Little Flower, was as much a hallmark of his life as priest as was the annual St. Casimir's Church Picnic, which was legendary for its "mouth-watering galumpkis" as Fr. Lou himself often said. Fr. Lou had an intensely devout, deep devotion to The Blessed Mother, who I pray welcomed him directly into Heaven upon his passing yesterday with Her Open Arms and Her Smiling Face so that he could join in the company of God's Holy Elect, including I pray, my dear mother and father. And now that "every tear" has been wiped away for all Eternity, truly, may God Bless His Angels and His Saints, including Father Louis Bilicky.

Father Lou was the kindest, biggest hearted priest and I was blessed to have him as a confessor, my marriage officiant, my childrens Baptism officiant, my friend and the one person in this world who knew me well enough to nickname me Stinky.
May the Lord welcome him with open arms and may St Theresa be there with a hug for him. The world has lost a treasure.
