Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky. Behold, I have given you the power ‘to tread upon serpents’ and scorpions and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you, but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
— Lk 10:18-20

Altar Server Permission Slip
Saint Patrick’s is re-starting our altar server program. We will meet weekly on Thursdays @ 3:00 pm for five weeks, beginning March 17th, 2022. We miss our altar servers and feel they are a very important part of our parish liturgy celebrations. Altar servers usually participate at weekend liturgies, but they may also participate at daily Mass, funerals, and weddings, if needed. Starting in the third grade, children from Saint Patrick Parish are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the Altar Server Ministry.
Becoming an altar server is a great way for your child to learn, at an early age, to serve God and their parish. What an example they would be to their peers as well as other members of the Church. God created us to serve Him and that is exactly what your child would be doing.
If your child is interested in becoming an altar server for Saint Patrick Parish, or if you have any questions, please call me at 781-438-0960. Also please fill out the permission form below and return it to the Parish Office.
Please give prayerful thought in allowing your child to become an altar server. Please consider becoming an altar server yourself.
Thank you and God Bless
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.
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.
