We strive to be a warm, welcoming and caring parish in which the gifts and talents of all, young and old, are recognized and graciously used to nourish others. If you are new to the parish, please introduce yourself to Fr. McCarthy after Mass.
FY2015 Annual Report
Due to Fr. McCarthy's vacation and the availability of priests, we will not have a Mass on Thanksgiving morning. We will have a Communion Service @ 8:00 a.m.
ST. THECLA'S OUTREACH PROGRAM: Could You Help?? Do You Need Help?? As we move into this fall, the Outreach Program at St. Thecla Parish is seeking new volunteers, as well as offering assistance to others. If you have previously offered your help, could you please do so again? “Outreach” is a “Ministry”, run by a group of parish volunteers, who do a number of things to assist those in need. We cook and bring meals into Pine Street once a month. We will visit people in their homes who are unable to attend church, and will bring Eucharist. We will drive parishioners to Mass and/or to doctor’s appointments. We will run errands and will cook and deliver meals. Help is needed in each of these areas. We ask that you pray for this ministry. Should you have a loved one or a neighbor who might like to be visited by a member of our team or if you feel you might be able to help…or would like more information…we ask that you call the rectory at 781-826-9786.
