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.”
“ABORTION IS PROFOUNDLY ANTI-WOMEN. THREE QUARTERS OF ITS VICTIMS ARE WOMEN: HALF THE BABIES AND ALL THE MOTHERS”
Blessed 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
Abortion and racism are both symptoms of a fundamental human error. The error is thinking that when someone stands in the way of our wants, we can justify getting that person out of our lives. Abortion and racism stem from the same poisonous root, selfishness.
Mass Cards are available through the parish office during this time. Please call the parish office to make arrangements, we will prepare it and leave it for you to pick up at the mailbox located at the side door in the small parking lot.
The Massachusetts State Legislature is considering two troubling bills this session.
Please read more on our Let Your Voice Be Heard - Again! page

Each week a volunteer videographer picks up a camera from Stoneham TV and videotapes our four o'clock vigil mass. Our videographers receive training from a member at Stoneham TV on how to use the camera. The videotaped mass is played on Stoneham TV's station several times each week. This important ministry allows our home bound parishioners the ability to experience our Sunday mass by viewing it on Stoneham TV's station. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer videographer, please contact Susanne Bromander in the Parish Office @ 781-438-0960.
Other ministries are spotlighted on our Ministry Spotlights page.
