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.

at St. Mary's & for all in the Parish
St. Margaret Parish is now offering the opportunity for parishioners to learn how to make Mission Cord Rosaries. Beginners’ kits are free for those who want to come to St. Mary’s Church at 10:00 AM on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month. Marian Rose will teach you how to make the rosaries and give you information on how to order additional kits and where to send the Rosaries once they are completed. Completing a handmade Rosary is like giving the Blessed Mother a beautiful Rose.
with the Blessed Mother
In the past Mary V. Rose and her brother would bring a statue of the Blessed Mother to homes throughout the area for prayer. This ministry has begun again with a smaller lightweight statue. If you or someone you know would like to receive the statue for a week, please contact Marian Rose at 508-295-8614. Forms will also be located at the entrances of both churches.

Diocese to Observe Child Abuse Prevention Month

Every April, child- and youth-serving organizations — including many Catholic dioceses, parishes, and schools — participate in National Child Abuse Prevention Month to highlight the importance of protecting minors from abuse. These efforts are part of the ongoing work of dioceses across the country to carry out the U.S. bishops’ “Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.”

Please visit the Diocesan Safe Environment page for more information:

“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these". Mark 10:14
