St. Ann's Respect Life Ministry has a great suggestion for parishioners to take a stand for life. All you need to do is change your license plate! The Massachusetts "Choose Life" license plate is a wonderful way to raise public awareness and much needed funding to support the positive choices of adoption and safe havens. To order "The Choose Life" plate, or for more information, visit www.chooselifemassachusetts.org. Click on the "Purchase a Choose Life Plate" link for the Massachusetts RMV webpage. It's easy and goes to a great cause - and you don't have to wait in line!
In order to serve as a Godparent or sponsor, you must be a confirmed Catholic, at least 16 years old, registered in a parish and practicing your faith by weekly participation at Mass.

The Office for Child Protection would like to remind those in ministry with our children to maintain appropriate boundaries at all times. Meeting alone in isolated areas, e-mailing or calling too much, being involved in too many of the minor’s activities, showing favoritism or giving special gifts and communicating with our youth over social networking sites such as MySpace and Face Book, violates appropriate boundaries in our relationships with young people.
If you would like more information about what types of interactions are inappropriate, please call Debora Jones at 508-674-4681.

Examining the New English Translation of the Mass
Why a new translation? Which prayers are changing? How will it affect our celebration of the Mass?
A video presentation explaining the changes to the Mass, given by Rev. Msgr. Stephen J. Avila, director of the Office for Worship of the Fall River Diocese and the Pastor of St. Mary’s Parish in Mansfield, is available for viewing on Youtube in a five-part series. Links to the video are here:

We want to keep in touch with our parishioners
It is important to let us know when one becomes homebound or enters a nursing home or long-term care so that we can touch base and see if they would like to receive Holy Communion.
Please help keep us informed of these changes.
