A Few Words From Father Steve

Dear Friends,
Summertime in Boston and all it's surrounding areas is something that makes us realize the beauty of what God created. Recently we have had rain showers and thunderstorms and yet there is something wonderful in all this. Although Buddy, Coco and Gizmo do not like thunder or lightning, as much as they do not like parades, but we know how much we needed the rain in our area and it can be a welcome relief from the heat and water for the grass and plants.

Summertime is cultivating and caring for plants and vegetables, that so many people do at this time of the year. We also enjoyed seeing the flowers we planted on the grounds. They are beautiful and a reminder of all who donated towards those flowers last week, which now make our parish look so nice! Thank you. Summertime is also a great time to take my jeep out with the top off and take a ride with Buddy, Coco and Gizmo. Whether we are driving around Castle island, Rockport, The Cape, Gloucester, Maine, New Hampshire or Marshfield, it is great to see so many people being refreshed by the water, taking long walks, eating ice cream, boating or water skiing. This is the only time we can have this much water fun--in the summer.

Summertime may also be a good time to learn something new. Many notice different birds in their yards or notice the stars at night. Some may make something in their kitchen with something they grew in their yard.

Summertime is the time to turn off your television and maybe do something you've always wanted to do. Maybe read that book you have been putting off. Somehow with the sun setting later, it always makes us feel we have more time to do things!

Summertime is vacation, maybe to take a week-end off or a few weeks away. Many travel to their cottages or to the mountains, but it is a time to renew themselves, spending time together, playing games with their families and not be distracted by electronics.

Summertime is for kids. Many are home from college or are on vacation from school. Some of our parishioners are preparing for college in the Fall. Wasn't it great when you were younger to be able to stay up later, go for a ride to get an ice cream, go camping or hang out with your friends? Maybe some have been able to watch a Red Sox game. Summertime is when we keep connected to what makes America great. We want to keep in mind what has made America great - visit historical places, monuments and fly the flag.

Summertime is also a time to not forget about church. We are always here. If you are away, go to Mass where you are.

And finally, summertime is your time. I hope it is relaxing and fun! Enjoy! Be safe!

Love, Father Steve
