An Update on the Opening of our Church
Special Message to Our Young Families
The past three months have been very difficult for all of us, especially during the mandatory closing of our church. It feels like a very long time since we’ve seen all of you, and of course, it probably feels even longer to your children who have a different sense of time. It is with this in mind that I wish to communicate some thoughts with you.
Now that it’s summer, obviously many families will be vacationing or going away on weekends. On the weekends you’re in town, I highly encourage you to come to church for everyone’s spiritual benefit, especially your children. If our families stay away until September, then they will have missed one-half year of church attendance! With such a long hiatus from church, this can have some serious ramifications. At least with some periodic attendance this summer, we can all start working toward our regular routine of Sunday attendance.
Having said all this, I realize that many parishioners prefer staying away now because of the virus. Please rest assured that we have taken all the mandatory precautions in order to assemble safely. During these troubling times, we need our Church in order to find spiritual solace and strength. Please prayerfully considered what I have shared. Hopefully you’ll make it a point to bring your children’s smiling faces to church!
from the Parish Office
Welcome to the opening of our church! It is a blessing.
During the summer, the office is staffed from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. During national holidays or emergencies, the Parish Office is closed. To book your sacraments or for information, call the office at (781) 646-0705 to speak with me or to leave a message with your name and telephone number. Please note that when you leave a message on the church phone, I am able to see it on my email as well, which I check periodically. You may also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Be safe; be well!
