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.

FRIDAYS OF LENT

Won't you spend some time on Friday
during Lent with the Lord?
We will have Adoration starting at 8:30 AM

A YEAR TO ST. JOSEPH!!

On December 8, 2020 Pope Francis announced a Year to St. Joseph. As a Diocese, we will be partaking in this year through opportunities for prayer and formation, including the 33-day Consecration to St. Joseph concluding on May 1, the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. For more information and to register for free events during this year, visit: https://fallriverfaithformation.org/stjoseph

On Tuesday, March 2nd at 7pm, Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, author of the book Consecration to St. Joseph: The Wonders of Our Spiritual Father, will be having a virtual talk for the Diocese as a prequel to the consecration to St. Joseph, which will begin on March 30th. Fr. Calloway is a well-known conference speaker on Divine Mercy and the Blessed Virgin Mary. He speaks passionately about these topics in his moving conversion story. To register, go to:

The St. Vincent de Paul thanks you for your generous donations. Because of your generosity, we were able to provide so many children with winter jackets (Giving Trees). In addition our Food Pantry distributed non-perishables to numerous clients. We provided additional services such as rooms for the homeless, assistance for heating bills, clothing, furniture and various other requests. We once again, thank you and may God bless you!

 

Snow Policy!!

Now that winter is here, there are weather situations that need to be addressed. If we have a significant amount of snow on the roads and sidewalks, please do not take chances. If you are not comfortable going outside please use your better judgement and stay at home. We want to keep our parishioners safe. Your safety is most important to us. During weekdays, if schools or town offices are closed, our Churches and Parish Office will also be closed.
