I would like to thank Fr. Kevin for his generous help with us this summer in all our Beverly parishes. Please join us in wishing him well as he prepares to return to Rome to continue his studies after the noon Mass this Sunday in the cafeteria of the Saints Academy school.
The study will begin on September 12 and go through November 7. We gather at 9:15 in the upstairs meeting room in the Convent at 15 Chapman Street, Beverly.
We will study Paul’s letter to the Ephesians using the Great Adventure Bible Study DVD (with Jeff Cavins) and study guide. The price for the study guide is $24 but if that is a hardship, not to worry.
This is definitely a study that a newcomer can easily enter into.
Wednesday Evening Bible Study
Beginning September 27, the Wednesday Evening Bible study will meet from 7:00pm-8:30pm in the St. Mary’s Convent Upper Room to study the book of James.
Men and Women are welcome.
Facilitators: Amy & Mike Donovan and Tom & Cynthia Gernetzke.

Imagine Our Blessed Mother, the Pope, or the President inviting you to set aside one special hour each week to be with them. You would feel like the most important person in the world! You would be overjoyed. You would tell all your friends about it. You would be faithful every week in keeping your scheduled time. Should you respond to Our Blessed Lord’s invitation with any less enthusiasm? “The only time our Lord asked the Apostles for anything was the night when He went into His agony. But as often in the history of the church since that time, evil was awake, but the disciples were asleep. That is why there came out of His anguished and lonely Heart a sigh: “Could you not watch one hour with Me?” (Mt 26:40). Not for an hour of activity did he plead, but for an hour of friendship.” -Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
If you are interested in signing up for an hour of Eucharistic Adoration at St. Mary’s please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Joanne Wright (978-745-6712) or Lorrie Doucette (978-578-6674).
The Eucharist is described in the catechism as the ‘source and summit’ of our faith. Finding the time to go to Adoration can be difficult. But if you can make it happen, committing to regular Adoration with an open heart can have some surprising results…
