A Few Words from Father Steve
Still with the snow we have had, we know there are signs of spring starting. First was "Truck Day" at Fenway where the Boston Red Sox's equipment truck left for Fort Myers, Florida a couple of weeks ago. Yes, this was a sure sign of spring! The 53-foot truck, carrying a surplus of baseball equipment and supplies, left Fenway Park to make the 1,480-mile trip to the Red Sox' spring training complex in Fort Myers. The Red Sox pitchers and catchers were scheduled to report in Fort Myers for the team's first workout scheduled for Feb. 13th . Truck Day marks the unofficial beginning of spring training and you could see that many people braved the cold weather at Fenway Park to send the equipment truck off to Fenway South. Opening Day, April 9th will be here soon!
Another sign of Spring was when my sister and I went looking for rock salt the other day. It was pretty difficult to find rock salt, where every place had run out, but lots of sand boxes and kiddie pools already out and ready for those sunny days that are coming!
With every snowflake that falls however, we know that the surest sign of spring is Easter coming on April 21st. The liturgical season of Easter coming fills all of us with immense hope. When we talk with Jesus, we are free from the loneliness in life. The goodness of God fills us and all we have to do is ask for His help. This gives us hope and we are not alone.
We wait for Spring! Love Fr. Steve

Calling all Women!
Our Lady of Assumption Parish has started a new ministry for women called the “Women at the Well.” The group will meet in the conference room in the Parish Center after the 8:00 am Mass the last Saturday of every month. This is a safe and trusting environment to share your faith and grow closer to God. Pam Hulme will facilitate the group and you can email her for additional information at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome!
