November 1 ~ Solemnity of All Saints
In today’s gospel, Jesus describes some of the qualities and behaviors of saintly and holy people. Today’s feast reminds us of that great cloud of witnesses who have lived saintly, albeit not perfect lives. The witness of their lives helps us believe it is possible to be holy people ourselves. Each of us has a favorite saint, someone we pray to be like or someone we admire for the way they lived their discipleship. Take a few moments to reflect on the life of that saint. How might you emulate that saint in your life? Then talk to a loved one about your favorite saint.
National Friends of the Poor Virtual Walk
Help support the Society of St. Vincent de Paul at Saint Patrick Parish! Participants will have one week (11/7-11/14) to complete a one-mile walk. You can either walk the whole mile in one day or break up your distance over the course of the week. Walk anywhere that is safe to walk one mile: your own neighborhood, a friend’s neighborhood, or even the Stoneham bike trail.
Let Your Voice Be Heard - Again
“Say No to ROE”
The state legislature has extended the session until January 5th, 2021. Please remind the members of the Joint Committee on Judiciary that you oppose the expansion of abortion in Massachusetts. Please call the Committee at 617-722-2396 and let them know you are opposed to H3320 and S1209 – the ROE legislation. Every telephone call helps!
Remember these bills would remove:
- The requirement that young girls obtain consent before an abortion
- The requirement that efforts be made to save a living baby who survives abortion
- The requirement that late term abortions be performed in hospitals
- And the bills would allow abortion on demand for all nine months of pregnancy.
For more information about how the ROE legislation would expand abortion in Massachusetts visit www.macatholic.org. Thank you!
Scam Alert Warning
Fr. Mario's name is being used in a scam to try and extract gift cards from parishioners. We have had a few calls today 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.
Any requests will be sent via the bulletin, the web site, or announced at Mass.

who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen
