We are so excited to invite you to join in our Nurturing Seedlings opportunity for parents who have children birth through five years old. Nurturing Seedlings focuses on you as parents and as the most important person in your child’s life to introduce them to God. This is a chance to meet and connect with other parents and form lasting friendships and grow in your faith.
We will meet for five (5) meaningful Sundays beginning on March 3rd for one hour starting at 9:30 am in our church hall. Childcare will be provided. This is your time to be cared for, celebrated and BE together as parents in your wonderful, most rewarding (and yes, challenging) role.

Supporting Our Neighbors in Christ
Our 9th grade Confirmation class is sponsoring a bake sale after all the Masses the weekend of February 24 and 25.
WHY: To raise funds to benefit the AHM (Amston, Hebron, Marlborough & Columbia) Youth and Family Services’ initiative to expand counseling services for children and families through a self-sustaining Therapist Mentoring Program.
The Confirmation class is focusing our service efforts this year by identifying and assisting with needs in our local area and this project is a wonderful match!
OUR GOAL: To raise $500 to benefit this important AHM initiative focused on improving mental health of youth and families within our communities. We are also excited to share that all donations will be matched up to 100% by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
Please stop by the tables after Mass to pick up a tasty treat and support this valuable AHM initiative. Thank you in advance for supporting this important cause.

Breaking In The Habit
Men's Retreat ~ April 12-14, 2024 ~ Holy Family Retreat Team
Our retreat theme this year, Only Say the Word…, is based on the belief that God can – and will – heal us, and all of creation. Our faith prompts us to ask for and receive that healing in many ways.
When Jesus encounters the centurion in the Gospel of Matthew (8:5-13), he meets a person of deep faith and humility who knows that healing comes from God alone. The centurion proclaims: “Lord, I am not worthy that you should come under my roof, but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed.” We will reflect together on those powerful words of Jesus in response to the centurion: “Go; let it be done for you according to your faith” (Matthew 8:13). We will ask: where is healing needed, in us and in our world? And how can we, the very Body of Christ, help to bring about that healing with our unique gifts and talents?
Congratulations to Connor H. (8-10 age group)

St. John Fisher Parish Family
The Christian Outreach Committee (COC) of SJF Parish provides opportunities for parishioners to (1) live their faith by partnering in care for others and (2) by supporting and sustaining the strength of a faithful community through initiatives of service and outreach that produce lasting benefits.
We are always looking for new members as we research and plan various events for parishioners to act on what Jesus asks of us – “Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you.“ John 13:14-15
