We are thrilled this summer to be partnering with the youth and adults of the Marlborough Congregational Church by participating in a combined Marlborough Summer Service weekend in July. Teams of youth (grade 5 through college students home for the summer) will be paired with adult site leaders to work on various projects within our community. The focus is to provide help for those in need such as the veterans and veteran's families, those dealing with a disability, low income or the elderly. If you or someone you know is in need of such support (yard work, cleaning out and organizing, painting, window washing, simple house maintenance, etc) please get in touch with Father Sas or Barbara Meyer at the Parish Office

Here is a photo from our recent presentation on Immigration. Speaking is Alan Dornan from Rocky Hill who walks 2 miles a day in solidarity with refugees.
Most of the events of Mary's life are well known to us as the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary: Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Presentation and Finding of Jesus in the Temple.
Mary Not so Gentle will reflect on these and other Scriptural events to consider what qualities in addition to joy and gentleness, Mary presents to us for our admiration and imitation.
Join us on Tuesday, May 14th at 9:15am (following 8:30am Mass) or 7:00pm in the St. Thomas More Hall.
