Let Your Voice Be Heard – Again

“Say No to ROE”

The state legislature has extended the session until January 5th, 2021. Please remind the members of the Joint Committee on Judiciary that you oppose the expansion of abortion in Massachusetts. Please call the Committee at 617-722-2396 and let them know you are opposed to H3320 and S1209 – the ROE legislation. Every telephone call helps! Remember these bills would remove:
– The requirement that young girls obtain consent before an abortion
– The requirement that efforts be made to save a living baby who survives abortion
– The requirement that late term abortions be performed in hospitals
– and the bills would allow abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy

For more information about how the ROE legislation would expand abortion in Massachusetts, visit www.macatholic.org.

Faith Formation News

Remote Classes

Faith Formation classes will be prerecorded remote lessons through November 8th. Students will be emailed a prerecorded video lesson and assignment(s) on the date of their scheduled classes (please see the calendar online). Students will then have until 8:00PM the night before their next scheduled class to submit his/her assignment and receive credit. We will reevaluate our remote status at the end of the month. If you have not picked up your child’s Faith Formation materials please contact Mrs. Murphy to schedule a time for this as soon as possible.

Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers & Altar Servers

For all Ministers going forward for October – December: While things are still uncertain, we will be creating the new schedules on a monthly basis, please check the bulletin or join “Flocknotes” for updates.

For the month of November we will only be needing Lectors. We are asking all Lectors to let us know if you feel comfortable returning, and your availability for the month of November. Please send us a note via email at office@stannsraynham.org, the mail, or the collection basket with the dates by Sunday, October 11th so the new schedule for November may be drafted.
