June 23 – Feast of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ

Summer Mass Schedule
Over the past few years we’ve changed the Mass schedule during the months of July and August. This consisted of not having a 9:30am Mass. This year we are going to combine the 9:30am and 11:00am into a 10:00am Sunday Mass, for the months of July and August only. Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility.
Fr. John

For those who have not yet contributed, please give careful consideration to this important diocesan endeavor. The deadline is Sunday, June 30th!!

Donations may be mailed to Catholic Charities Appeal, 450 Highland Ave, Fall River, MA 02720. For those who did not receive an envelope in the mail, they are available at the church entrances. You may also contribute online at the Catholic Charities website: www.frdioc-catholiccharities.org.

Sacred Hearts Retreat Center

Sacred Hearts Retreat Center in Wareham will be closing its doors at the end of July. To give thanks to God for 76 years of ministry and service, join us in an outdoor gratitude and farewell Eucharist on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, June 28 at 5:30pm. A light meal will be served afterwards. Please call Sr. Claire at 508-295-0100 if you plan to attend the Mass.

The next day, Saturday June 29th will be “Open House” from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Refreshments will be served. Come for a last walk-through, reminisce and share stories. In July the enormous task of emptying the entire facility begins and everything must go. To that end we will have a gigantic indoor yard sale July 11 to July 13 and July 15 to July 17 from 10:00am to 4:00pm daily. Lots of “treasures” and “bargains”. Location: 226 Great Neck Road, Wareham, MA (click for map). My heartfelt gratitude to all who have supported the retreat center over the years.
Sr. Claire
