Monday Morning Mass

Due to the National holiday honoring the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mass this Monday, January 18th, will be at 8:00am.

Valentines for Veterans

Each year students from our Faith Formation classes work together to create valentines for veterans in local care facilities in our area. This year this project becomes more challenging with our classes online and not in person. Therefore, we are asking our students and parishioners to join in creating homemade valentines for veterans. This can be an individual project or one for the whole household to participate in.

Please place your valentines in a sealed baggie and sign them with your first name only. Valentines will be collected following the 5:00pm Mass on January 31st – please place your valentines in the “Valentines for Veterans” box at the main entrance of the church.

Adopt A Pointsettia!

The poinsettias that have decorated the Church during the Christmas Season will be available for adoption. They will be placed in the Church basement on Monday, January 18th. Please give them a good home!!

Register for Mass

For the immediate future, we will have signups for the weekend Masses to ensure we do not go over the allocated number of parishioners allowed in Church. Please sign up for Mass on our website at www.stannsraynham.org, on our Facebook page, our Flocknote message, or call our office (508)-823-9833. Registration for Mass will remain open online until 1 hour prior to all scheduled Mass times.

Faith Formation News

This has been a difficult year for the youth in our parish and we miss our students and volunteers greatly. However, with COVID numbers predicted to increase, we will be continuing to send home prerecorded lessons and assignments through our online learning portals for the next couple of months.

Students receiving First Communion and Confirmation this spring will be notified by email of a required live-virtual class during the new year. First Communion will have two sessions to select from on February 7th and Confirmation will have two sessions to select from on January 24th – registration will be required as access to each session will be limited.

Lectors – Eucharistic Ministers – Altar Servers

For the month of February we again only need Lectors for the weekend Masses. Lectors, please submit the dates you are unavailable by Sunday, January 17th, so the February schedule can be made. Thank you all for your help!
