Legion of Mary Acies Ceremony at the Cathedral

Our Parish Legion of Mary recently attended the Acies Ceremony at St. Mary's Cathedral in Fall River.  There, we joined with other Legion groups from around our diocese for a prayer service which included the Legion Prayers, the Rosary, and Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction.  We also learned that our pastor, Fr. Richard Wilson, will be the new spiritual advisor for the Legions of Mary in our diocese.  Congratulations, Fr. Wilson!

St. Joseph's Church sold; Transfer Service Scheduled

This afternoon, St. Joseph's Church was sold to the Coptic Church.  Coptic Christianity has its roots in Egypt, being founded by St. Mark the Evangelist in Alexandria in the decades after the Resurrection.  As such they are seen as an apostolic church, as is the Roman Catholic Church.  Among the many similarities between our churches are the celebration of the seven sacraments, including the Holy Eucharist.

To mark the transfer of St. Joseph's Church from the Roman Catholic Church to the Coptic Church, we will have an ecumenical prayer service on the evening of Thursday, 14 November, at 7 p.m.; the church will be open at 6:30 p.m. for anyone wishing to come early for prayer.  This service will mark both the transfer of St. Joseph's to the Coptic Church, as well as the continuity in the use of the church as a place for the celebration of the Eucharist and other sacraments.  Following the service, a simple collation will take place in the lower church hall.  We hope you can join us!
