St. Jude Christmas Luncheon. On Saturday December 6 we will have a Luncheon in our hall to benefit St.Jude Children's hospital. The luncheon will consist of a Turkey Dinner. It will begin with a homemade soup, and end with assorted deserts. At the end of the meal, we will be presented a concert of Christmas music by the Swansea Community Band. Tickets are only $10.00. They are available in the rectory, and after Mass at the back of the Church. This Luncheon began with Fr. Lagoa who had a special devotion to the hospital, and continues in his memory. All proceeds minus expenses from the dinner will be donated to the hospital.
Pilgrimage to the Holy Land: Fr. Babiczuk, Fr Reis from St. Andrew's in Taunton, and Fr. Andrade from St. Louis de France in Swansea will be leading a 10 day Pilgrimage to the Holy Land from April 19 to 28 of 2015. Many no doubt have wondered if the trip is on with "The Troubles" in the Gaza strip over the Summer. The most recent peace accord is holding, and the trip is on. We have 20 sign up already despite the "Troubles" which is a good sign. Please see our website for more information about the trip: rabpilgrimages.weebly.com.
