May 6, 2018. Sixth Sunday of Easter.

News and Notes:  This weekend, we are celebrating the First Holy Communion of the second graders who are enrolled in the Faith Formation programs of both parishes.  Join me in thanking Bethany Kilroy, Jamie Bossi and the catechists of SMG, as well as Piri Collard, Kate McGrath and the catechists of OLA for their work in assisting the parents of our children in their preparation for this second Sacrament of Initiation.  Next Saturday, May 12, we will welcome the second grade children of Our Lady of the Assumption School and their families to the 4PM Mass at OLA for the School children’s First Holy Communion celebration. 

This Thursday, May 10 is the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord, a Holyday of Obligation that marks Jesus’ Ascension into the glory of heaven 40 days after his Resurrection.  Masses will be celebrated as follows:

Wednesday, 4PM May 9 at OLA

Thursday, 7AM May 10 at SMG

Thursday, 9AM May 10 at OLA

Thursday, 7PM May 10 at SMG

As is the custom of the Church on Holydays, a collection for the support of our parishes will be taken up at all Masses for the Ascension of the Lord.  Thanks for your faithful stewardship of your particular parish and the Mission of our Collaborative…and blessings to all of you in the week ahead!
