Fourth Sunday of Easter

[Jesus said,] “I am the good shepherd, and I know mine and mine know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I will lay down my life for the sheep.”
— Jn 10:14-15

“I am the good shepherd, I know mine and mine know me.” We can take comfort in these words of Jesus from today’s gospel. Jesus knows every one of us, and cares for and about us, but what about the second part of that statement? Do we know him as well as he knows us? Are we committed to developing/nurturing our relationship with Jesus? Knowing Jesus and recognizing his voice takes a discerning heart. Through our friendship with him, we realize that he companions us in all that we do. We have the promise of Christ’s presence as we go out to others and share the “Good News.” Take time this week in prayer to listen to the voice of our Good Shepherd and ask for the grace to be responsive to His call.

First Communion

Our 2nd Grade Students will be receiving their First Holy Communion on May 4th and May 11th. There will be no Communal Mass on those two Saturdays. Please keep the children in your prayers as they prepare to receive Jesus for the first time.

Pray forFerdinando Donato, Robert A. Morris, James McDermott, & Andrea Costa
who died recently.

Prayer to Our Lady Of Guadalupe - Intercessor Of The Unborn

“Jesus, Mary and Joseph, I love you very much.
I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have
spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.”

“The greatest destroyer of peace in the world
today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a
direct killing.”
Mother Teresa with baby

Give us the grace... When the sacredness of life before birth is attacked, to stand up and proclaim that no one ever has the authority to destroy unborn life.

~ John Paul II

Scam Alert Warning

Important NoticeImportant NoticeLast June, many people on the contact list of St. Stephen Parish in Framingham received emails claiming to come from the parish, asking the recipient to purchase a Google Play gift card as a present for someone and promising to pay them back.

Any requests will be sent via the bulletin, the web site, or announced at Mass.

Link to the Boston Pilot article on the scams

In addition, Fr. Barmes' name is being used in a scam to try and extract gift cards from parishioners. We have had a few calls with parishioners having received a text purportedly from Fr. Barnes asking them to purchase $300 gift cards and to scratch of the security number and forward a picture of the gift card and security number.

DO NOT to respond to the text. It is not from Fr. Barnes and is an effort to scam them. Fr. Barnes would never ask parishioners to forward a picture of a gift card to him. These did not come from Fr. Barnes, please do not respond to these requests.

If you wish to donate securely, please use the Donate button at the top of this page.

For everyone’s safety, if you have tested positive for Covid-19, the current requirements are 5 days quarantine and 5 days with a mask. For more specific information, please see the CDC website.
