Second Collection for Misericordia Project
Education of the poorest in Kigali, Rwanda
Fr. Marcel Uwineza, S.J. is once again appealing to you all to support Misercordia Project; an initiative he started in 2012 together with a group of seven committed lay Rwandan Catholics to help educate children from the poorest and most vulnerable families (mostly girls), in the outskirts of Kigali in Rwanda. The project contributed to their formal education and professional training by paying their tuition and basic school needs. A second collection will be taken up at all Masses the weekend of May 27th-28th. Thank you for your generosity!
Second Collection for Seminarians
The second collection taken at all Masses June 3rd & 4th supports the formation and training of seminarians in the Archdiocese of Boston for future service as priests. We are blessed that many are responding to the call to serve as priests. Please be generous and support these seminarians on their journey toward their ordination to the priesthood.

May 28 ~ Pentecost Sunday
There is a spirit of enthusiasm and joy in today’s readings. Filled with the Holy Spirit, the disciples were unable to remain silent about the mighty acts of God. Each one was given a different gift, but each gift was given by the same Holy Spirit for the building up of the body of Christ. At our Baptism and Confirmation, the Holy Spirit poured out on each one of us the gifts we need to faithfully follow Christ. This Pentecost, may we too, experience the enthusiasm and joy that the Holy Spirit has given us. Call on the Spirit today with the words, “Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and rekindle in them [me] the fire of your love!”

Scam Alert Warning
Last 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.
