Weekend Mass Registration

Greetings friends. The link below is how you are able to sign up for Mass. There are 100 spots available per Mass. Seating will be taken care of when you arrive; you will be seated by someone at the Church so we can make sure everyone is safely distanced.

Please; you must wear a mask when coming. There will be no missalettes or hymnals; bulletins will be available but you must take yours with you when you leave. Communion will be distributed at the conclusion of Mass and reception of Communion will be in the hand. Instructions will be given at Mass. If you are able to register for Mass this week please be mindful that it is for this week only. At this time we are only encouraging Mass every other week so all can attend. You will receive a confirmation email that you will need to print and bring with you to Mass on Saturday afternoon or Sunday. If you are not able to register then you will not be able to attend Mass this weekend. Masses are 4:00pm on Saturday; 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00 am, and 5:00pm on Sunday.

Weather permitting, I will be hearing Confessions outside in the Rosary Garden on Saturday afternoon beginning at 2:30pm and concluding at 3:45pm.

Please be patient. Not everyone will be able to get to Mass this weekend. I once again encourage anyone who would be in a high-risk category to please consider waiting a few more weeks to return to Mass. There is still no obligation to attend.

God bless you all!

Fr. John

A Message from Father John

Dear Friends,

Thanks to Rob Costa (RMC Construction), our Parish Center roof was completed last week. They work well and they work fast! There will now be some work done on the outside of the center and we hope to do some work on the interior as well. As of this week, we have collected $40,120.00 toward our Annual Appeal Parish Center Improvements. Thank you all for your generosity! We could not have done this without you.

I am very aware of the situation in which we find ourselves, financially, and otherwise. Yet once again you have stepped up (not surprisingly). If you have not yet had the chance to make a donation to our Parish Center Project please consider doing so. There are envelopes just inside the front doors of the Church in a box marked “Annual Appeal”.

Thank you all and may God bless you for your ongoing generosity. I know each of us is looking forward to being back together in Church. I miss all of you and I look forward to being able to worship our God together again, in person.
Fr. John

International Nurses Day

On May 12th, International Nurses Day, Pope Francis spoke of Nurses as holding a “very special vocation in which men and women become Good Samaritans offering courage, hope, and trust.” Let us pray for nurses and all who work in health care during these very challenging days. May God bless them in their important work.

Taunton Area Community Table (TACT)

The Taunton Area Community Table Meal Center is located at 378 Bay Street, Taunton. TacT is a community-based meal center dedicated to providing free delicious, healthy meals to individuals and families in a warm, friendly and safe atmosphere. All are welcome, no questions asked. The TacT Meal Center is currently open Monday – Thursday for “grab and go” meals from 11:15am to 12:30pm.

We are also accepting donations of single-serving breakfast cereals, single packets of instant oatmeal in different flavors, breakfast bars, yogurt, fresh fruit or any other breakfast items you enjoy in individual servings would be helpful. You can drop off at the meal center Monday through Thursday between 9:00am to 12:30pm. In an abundance of caution, we will have a bin outside the staff entrance side door where you can leave them without having any unnecessary contact. Thank you all for your continued support of TacT and the people we serve. For more information visit our website at www.tactmealcenter.org, call 508-386-3807, or visit our Facebook page.

Baptisms
