Two Opportunities to Pilgrimage This Week to Year of Mercy Doors
On Saturday morning, October 29 - our collaborative is hosting a local pilgrimage for the Jubilee Year of Mercy to our Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston. Families, other parishioners, and friends are all invited to join Fr. Joe as we prayerfully prepare for this opportunity to pass through the Holy Doors of Mercy, attend a Mass of Appreciation for Altar Servers from around the archdiocese, and get a tour of the mother church of all of our parishes - your cathedral. We will meet at St. Mary parking lot at 8:45am carpool or bus into the Cathedral and return between 2:00 - 3:00pm. Call St. Mary Wrentham at 508-384-3373 for more information.
The second opportunity to pass through a designated Holy Door of Mercy to gain the Jubilee Plenary Indulgence will be on Wednesday, October 26th at the LaSalette Shrine, Attleboro, MA. There is a group leaving from St. Mary Church Franklin, MA at 10:45 AM. If you would like more information on this pilgrimage please call St. Mary Parish Franklin at 508-528-0020 or visit their website at www.stmarysfranklin.org.
Calling All Volunteers!
We're just like you. We're teachers, business executives, parents, retirees, students...you name it. But the one thing we all have in common is our desire to help. And the more volunteers we have, the bigger impact we can all make.
Where we can go and make a difference following Hurricane Matthew is North Carolina, South East area. We have scheduled a trip on short notice for Oct. 30th to Nov. 4th. If you can join us, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost to you would be approximately, $670 plus your transportation. This cost is tax deductible. While we cannot assume the entire cost we do have scholarship money available to help.
The work will be varied and include the first steps of clearing out debris and damaged items.
