First Friday Kitchen: October 3
The next First Friday Kitchen is October 3. Our kitchen will be serving from 4-6:30pm. Eat-in or take-out. It is best to pre-order to guarantee an item, but not necessary. Order forms/ menus are found at the doors of the Church, and also on the Parish web page. Order forms can be brought to the rectory, or put into an envelop and into the collection basket. Please write "Friday Kitchen" on the outside. Before 2:30pm on the Friday you can call the office at 678-5513 to place an order, but after 2:30 call the hall at 678-5139. In addition to our usual items, our entrees for this Friday are as follows: Lobster Ravioli, Grilled Steak Tips, Stuffed Chicken Breast, Bacalhau Gomes de Sa'. Click Here for menu.
Dinner 'n A Movie
Our next "Dinner 'n a Movie" will not be till Friday, December 12th at 7pm. Why so late? The Church calendar, Fr. Fred's calendar, and the civil calendar make it difficult to find a good Friday. To see the Official Trailer click here. We will be serving supper an hour before the movie. We will make the menu available a few weeks before the movie. Check back at the start of November.
Start of Faith Formation & Registration:
For Information about the start of Faith Formation see the drop down menus under Faith Formation or click here. Please note that the starting date for grades 1, 3-4 has been moved once again to Sunday October 19th. The reason for the change is to give us enough time to train and "cori" new teachers. This simply means that Faith Formation for these grades will continue into May.To register on-line for Faith Formation click here.
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. You can print the Itinerary with Registration Form by clicking here and bring it to one of the priests, or you can book on line at Unitours (using a credit card) by clicking here.
