Bring a blanket or sleeping bag, and a friend.  Any questions, or if you would like to help with any of the family events and activities please email Mimi Gallagher at orestthecla@aol.com


HEALING SERVICE:  Deacon Jack Sullivan will be conducting a Healing Service here on Friday, October 7 @ 5:15 p.m. and every first Friday thereafter with his relic of Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman.  In July, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI announced that Jack’s sudden and remarkable healing from a crippling spinal injury, after prayer for Newman’s intercession, was a miracle, leading to Newman’s beatification in September, 2010.  Any questions, call Deacon Jack at 781-563-2107.


St. Thecla Book Club:  Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner is our October selection for Book Club.  This  is a wonderful novel that journeys from the present day to World War II England as two sisters are separated by the chaos of wartime.  It is a beautiful story of love, loss and sacrifice.  If you are looking for another good book, for November we are reading “Flight of the Sparrow” by Amy Belding Brown.  Please join us at the library on October 19th   at 7 p.m. for our very informal discussion.  All are welcome. Questions – please call Barbara McMorrow at (781) 293-9337.
