Prayer for
Spiritual Communion

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love You above all things and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot now receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Please call Donna Struzzieri 774-571-9283. If you’re going to be in the area and have a few minutes we can use your help. This garden will provide vegetables that will be donated to those in need via St. Vincent de Paul.

Special Thanks!

Special thanks to Tom & Zygmunt who donated their time and talent to completely renovate the rectory deck at 41 Puritan Rd. The deck was in desperate need of repair to the point of myself falling through it. The only cost to the parish was materials. Thank You so much. - Fr. Marek
