To honor St. Francis of Assisi, our Collaborative will hold a Blessing of the Animals on Saturday, October 1, at 1:00PM on the grounds of Blessed Sacrament Church. Pets of all demoninations are welcomed: furry, feathered, scaled or stuffed! You may also bring a photo of your pet. For your pet's safety, all dogs must be leashed. All other pets must be in a crate or a cage.

Please bring donations of cat/dog food, which will benefit the Northeast Animal Shelter.

 

Like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus, oftentimes, when we are in pain, we do not recognize the presence of God. Through prayer, reflection, and discussion, we will discover not only His presence, but also that God is there to help us carry the cross we are presented with when we lose someone we love. Fr. Tim and Bunny Pizzano will host ten sessions for those who grieve and would like to seek God's presence and trust in His ways. These sessions will be once a month, and will begin in September. If you are interested, please sign up by using the signup sheets at the doors of either church, or speak directly with Fr. Tim.

How long has it been since you have had a professional portrait taken?  Next week you can have it done right here at Blessed Sacrament while helping our collaborative financially at the same time.  The collaborative will receive $5.00 for every photo taken and everyone will also receive a complementary bound photo album of the parish and a free 8 X 10 photo.  What's the catch you ask?  There is none.  You do not have to buy any pictures if you do not want to.  You do not even have to be a member of the collaborative, so invite your friends.  If you do not want your picture included in the photo album, just tell us.

 

To sign-up online for a slot to have your picture taken please click here.  There will also be sign up sheets after all of the Masses this weekend.  Photo dates are October 7, 8 & 9 from 12 noon -to- 7:00 pm.  Also, don't forget your pets when having your portrait taken.  They are part of your family too.

 

 

You are welcome to join our Monday morning Bible Study Group! We meet in St. Margaret Parish Hall immediately after the 9AM Mass. This year we are coordinating with Fr. Michael on one of the programs in the FORMED.ORG Internet Adult Faith Formation package. Our first program will be "Symbolon/ The Catholic Faith Explained: Part 1 - Knowing the Faith." Stay tuned for the schedule dates for this program, but it began on Monday, September 19, and will run every other Monday. On the alternate weeks, Bev Gorman will prepare materials for the group. The first meeting was be September 12. If you are planning to join as a new member, or if you have questions, please contact Bev Gorman at 781-233-8306.  You do not need to join the Bible Study group to participate in Symbolon, but you do need to let us know if you're coming so we will have enough handouts.

 
 

Are you interested in helping our parishes to strengthen the Collaborative, in order to become all that we can be?

 

Whether you are new to the parishes, or a long-standing member, we invite you to consider serving on the Collaborative Pastoral Council. Members of the Council meet monthly to address issues which come up in parish/collaborative life, discuss and counsel on initiatives brought to them by parishioners or the Archdiocese, devise plans for the future direction of the Collaborative, and maintain an awareness of needs and trends. It is a consultative body with the pastor and the staff. Members serve a three year term. If you are not interested yourself, but know someone who could contribute to the Council, feel free to nominate him/her.

 

Anyone who is interested in serving, or who is nominated to serve, is invited to discern with fellow parishioners over a period of several weeks. There will be two meetings during that time. The first discernment meeting will be held on September 22, and the second on October 13. Both meetings will be at St. Margaret's Hall, and both will begin at 7:00 PM.

 

More information about the role of the Council, and its members, and the discernment process, will be discussed at the first meeting. If you are interested, but cannot attend the September meeting, please contact Fr. Tim.

 

On Saturday, October 15, and Saturday, October 22, a workshop on Pastoral Care to the Sick and the Homebound will be offered at St. Margaret's Hall. Both sessions will run from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, and will be presented by Timothy Duff, a certified chaplain. The rain date is October 29.

 

The workshop will cover communications skills, the basics of pastoral visitations, key illness issues, spiritual needs and concerns, grief, loss and dying, and caregiving issues. Eucharistic ministers, pastoral visitors, parish nurses, and others are encouraged to attend. Registration fee is $40, and at least twenty registrants must sign up or the class will be canceled.The Collaborative will pick up half the cost for those whjo are actively involved in this ministry, or who are planning to become involved in it. Registration information is available in the Collaborative Office , or you can call 617-746-5843.

 

Please register by October 14.
