DUE TO THE PATRIOTS GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL, THERE WILL BE NO 5:00PM MASS ON FEBRUARY 1ST.
With the Patriots in the Super Bowl this year, many will attend earlier Masses to be able to participate in local festivities (and others may be trying to stay off the road). Since there would be so few attending, we will suspend the Sunday 5pm Mass just on Feb. 1; the following Sunday we will resume offering that Mass every week. Thank you for your understanding.
To date we have raised 64% of our goal. If you have not already done so, please place your completed “Grand Annual Envelope” in the regualr collection at Mass or mail it directly to the Parish Office. Additional envelope are available at the entrace to the church.
All contributions, from the smallest to the largest, will be gratefully appreciated. If you have not already done so, we invite you to prayfully consider making your gift this week. We truely appreciate any assistance you can give, and we are counting on the many, who are able, to support this appeal.
Thank you to the many families who have already returned their Grand Gift.
