    • Last weekend, Fr. Lukasz was in Massachusetts at a Life Teen Conference with our youth minister, 10+ teenagers and parents. Fr. Carroll, Fr. Henry and Fernando our custodian were on vacation and Connor our sacristan was on pilgrimage. Our pinch hitters, Fr. Jerry, OFM said four Masses, Fr. Ed said three Masses which included 2 funerals, Rob Rizzo, the parish landscaper, did three burials and Rich and Ewa Wolowicz did parish maintenance and even Fr. Yohan did one baptism. To make sure everything ran smoothly, Michael Pierce, Carol Mangani, Lori Covello and the parish staff were on call. I am so grateful to everyone that helped last weekend, so that Fr. Lukasz and I could get away. We are all back to normal this weekend!!! PHEW!
    • In the gospel of Mathew Jesus calls a little child to him and proclaims “… whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me” (Mathew 18:5). Debbie DuHaime will be speaking at all Masses during the weekend of August 4-5 on behalf of Good Counsel homes, helping homeless, pregnant and parenting mothers and babies. Good Counsel operates 7 Catholic homes for pregnant women and their children as well as a national toll-free crisis pregnancy help line (800-723-8331). Baby bottles will be given out to collect money to assist with their lifesaving work. We welcome you with an open heart to learn more about what we, the Catholic community, can do to help homeless mothers and babies in need through crisis to careers. Please visit www.GoodCounselHomes.org or LIKE Good Counsel Homes on Facebook. The more you know, the more mothers and babies will be helped.
