We are looking for more volunteers to head up the Children's Liturgy and also Coffee Sunday.  Let the office know if you are interested in helping out.  Training will be provided.  

Children's Liturgy is offered the 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of each month at the 10:00 a.m. Mass.  The children are invited down to the parish hall to read a child friendly version of the readings/Gospel and will discuss it in their terms.  They will return to their family during the Offertory.


REGISTRATION for our Fall Religious Education  program, Grades 1-10, is open. Please pick up a purple registration form in the rectory mailbox, in the parish hall, or main entrance of the church and return with proper payment as soon as possible. Classes for Grades 2-6 are scheduled for Monday and Tuesday 4-5:30 p.m. (Teachers still needed for all classes); Grade 7 on Monday evenings; Grade 8 Wednesday evenings, and Grades 9 and 10 on Sundays.  Home school students, please sign up with the purple form as well.  If you have any questions, please contact the Religious Ed. office at 781-826-8042 or by email @ orestthecla@aol.com.


BOTTLE DRIVE:  What are you planning to do with all the bottles and cans that you will have accumulated over the summer and after your Labor Day weekend cookout?  Please think about bringing them to Fr. Mahoney Hall on the weekend of September 9th and 10th (the first weekend after Labor Day).  All proceeds will go to support the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (SBHF), which provides medical and educational services in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.  Your donations are needed now more than ever as the people of Haiti continue to strive to recover from the devastating effects of Hurricane Matthew in October of 2016. Last year, SBHF administered care to nearly 100,000 patients from all regions of Haiti!  You can help in a number of ways: donate your bottles and cans; redeem your bottles and cans and donate the money obtained; volunteer an hour of your time during the bottle drive to sort bottles and cans or to bring them to the redemption center; spread the word about the bottle drive.  If interested in helping, contact Bob or Kathy Fanning at 781-826-9233 or at rgfanning@verizon.net. 



Conversion: Following the Call of Christ. In this video series, Bishop Robert Barron showcases stories of conversion from the Bible.  The common theme in each story is the turning of all one's attention and energy towards an even deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  Each video is approximately 20 minutes in length and one will be shown in the main church after the daily Mass on Wednesday mornings in August.  The video schedule is August 9th-The Rich Young Man; August 16th-Matthew; August 23rd-Jonah, and August 30th-The Woman at the Well. 



Parish Library News: Have a little extra time this summer to do some spiritual reading?  Check out our newest addition to the Parish Library: Without a Doubt: Bringing Faith to Life by Bishop Thomas J. Tobin. In the words of one reviewer, "I love this book. The author is a bishop after the model of the Church Fathers. He knows how to teach without ever letting on that he is teaching, how to preach without ever getting preachy. He tells real-life stories-sometimes comic, sometimes bittersweet-that take us to the depths and heights of Christian faith. Give this book to the people you love best."
