Message from Cardinal Sean

Message from Cardinal Sean:

The distribution of the Precious Blood for the faithful is suspended, during the flu season.

In addition, the exchange of the Sign of Peace is to be offered without any physical contact.  Instead of a handshake, the faithful may bow to the persons nearby.

Finally, parishioners are reminded that if they are ill or suspect they are ill with a contagious illness, they are not bound by the Sunday Mass obligation. They should remain at home and return to church when they are well, waiting at least 24 hours after they have completely recovered.

Lenten Almsgiving During Lent

AND THE CATHOLIC COLLABORATIVE  OF BEVERLY

Here is a way that we can give alms together during Lent.

We have obtained from Bootstraps in Beverly some of the items that they most need. During each Sunday of Lent, can we all join together and bring a particular item to Church?

WE WOULD ALL BRING THE SAME ITEM.

The FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT— SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 18

please bring just one container of:

PEANUT BUTTER

We will have boxes in the back of our Churches. We could use some volunteers at each of the parishes who would be willing to help load and deliver the items each week. It is a small way of giving alms and of doing something together. We will have a new item listed in next week’s bulletin.

If you can help with the pick up and drop off of these food items please contact the Collaborative Office.

The Light Is On For You

On all the Wednesdays of Lent from 6:30-8:00PM, the Beverly Catholic Collaborative and all the parishes and chapels of the Archdiocese of Boston will be open for individual confession. The Archdiocese has set up a website, www.TheLightIsOnForYou.org, to help you prepare. It has videos on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, sheets on how to make a good confession, answers to frequently asked questions and more. Please make plans to come on the Lenten Wednesdays and spread the word of this special outreach of mercy to those you know.

BEGINNING FEBRUARY 21, 2017

“THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU”

WILL BE HELD FOR OUR BEVERLY CATHOLIC PARISHES AT
ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST PARISH ~~ 111 NEW BALCH STREET, BEVERLY
