Parish Twitter Account
While the Parish has had a twitter account for at least a year, it had not been used or publicized. We are now going to start to use it. Our handle is sjogsomerset. The Saint and Scripture blog with the daily Gospel and reflection will be sent out every day on it. The parish has subscribed to the tweets of Pope Francis and Fr. Jeff Cabral who both tweet a brief verse every day. It will of course be used for cancellations as well. If you are on twitter, please follow us.

7 Last words of Jesus. Jesus spoke 7 times while on the cross which are called "the seven last words of Jesus." On Wednesday of Holy Week, April 1, at 7pm we will have a prayer service based upon these 7 last words. This will be an opportunity to reflect upon these final statements of Jesus as they lead us to prayer.
