IMG 0798My sincere thanks to all those individuals who helped make our Christmas Liturgies such holy and meaningful experiences for the parish: The Worship Choir, Children’s Christmas Choir, Musicians, Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, and Greeters. Your participation reflected many blessings and gifts from God, and I thank you for sharing those gifts with your parish family.

Thank you also to the Decorating Committee for their beautiful work this season and to the Men’s Prayer Group for putting up our outside decorations.

Lastly, many thanks to all the ministries and parishioners who worked so hard on our Advent programs and activities. We enjoyed a wonderful Advent season together as a parish family!

With gratitude,

2016SeniorLunchThumbThis Saturday, October 22, 2016, Many of our Marlborough Senior Citizens attended an Autumn Luncheon Sponsored by St. John Fisher Church Christian Outreach Committee. Millions of volunteers across the nation united with a common mission - to improve the lives of others. “Make a Difference Day” has been one of the largest national days of community service for more than 20 years.  To honor of this day of service, our Christian Outreach Committee was delighted to sponsor an Autumn Luncheon for all Marlborough Seniors. A delicious lunch was served. Entertainment was provided by some of our local singers, door prizes won and friendship shared with our Marlborough community.
