Peter’s Pence Collection

A second collection will be taken up the weekend of October 1-2 to support the Holy Father’s “Peter’s Pence” collection that provides funds for emergency and disaster relief. This collection also provides support to The Catholic University of America (CUA) that educates priests, lay people for ministry, and will assist the Inner-City Parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston. Your generosity will assist the Holy Father as well as the various missionary efforts at home and abroad.

October 2 ~ Twenty-seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

In today’s second reading, St. Paul reminds us of our responsibility as disciples saying, “Stir into a flame the gift of God that you have…” When we think we are ill equipped to speak to another about our faith or its importance in our lives, it’s good to hear St. Paul’s words that “God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love…” Even when Jesus’ own disciples were worried about their ability to carry out his mission, they turned to him asking for an increase of faith. How about us? Will we ask for what we need to take God’s word to heart and share it with courage?

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. Mario's 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. Mario 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. Mario and is an effort to scam them. Fr. Mario would never ask parishioners to forward a picture of a gift card to him. These did not come from Fr. Mario, please do not respond to these requests.

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
Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Prayer for the Protection of the Unborn

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
