Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Last year we did a trial run creating a Community Garden for those who are in need. We are looking for help in watering the raised garden plots beside the church opposite parking lot. If you take walks on the canal you may want to take a detour and help those in need. If you have any ideas on how we can improve our production that is greatly needed. 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 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
