Many Thanks

Many thanks to all who have increased their donations since we started our increased offertory campaign last November. Additionally, thanks to all who contributed thus far to our Grand Annual collection which started the first week of December. As noted in the bulletin, so far we have collected $51,846.00 in the Grand Annual Collection toward a goal of $70,000.

If you have not yet contributed to this collection, please do so with the envelope you had received in the mail. If you do not have an envelope, you may pick one up at the entrances of the church. The cold winter has increased our utility costs significantly. Last month, our natural gas bill was $5,230. So, obviously, the parish needs your continued support, especially at this time of year.

This weekend, the parishes in the Archdiocese will be praying and offering Masses for the healing for victims of clergy abuse and for repentance for these sins. Our 7:30am and 5:00pm Masses this Sunday will be for this special intention. Please keep this intention in your prayers throughout the week. Additionally, anyone seeking help relative to this matter can call the Archdiocesan Office of Pastoral Support and Outreach at 617-746-5995.
