A Few Words from Father Steve

Dear Friends,
Even though we are in the middle of the summer, there are many people working very hard to plan events for September. This week I would like to highlight a few.

On September 8th following the 9:00 am Mass, the men and women groups are co-sponsoring a Communion Breakfast. Great food and great company. There will be a $10.00 charge in advance so we know the number of people who will attend. More details to follow.

On the evening of September 14th, the parish will sponsor a dinner cruise around Gloucester Harbor. There will be a great buffet, cash bar and dancing and a night on the high seas with wonderful people. Bus transportation will be provided from the parish at 4:00 pm and returning to the parish at 11:00 pm. Tickets for the bus and cruise are $95.00 per person and will be on sale next week. Call Audrey Colangelo at 617-686-8978 for more information.

Catechetical Sunday will take place on September 15th. It is on this day we celebrate the wonderful Religious Education Program that we have here at St Christine’s. We will commission and bless our incredible catechists at the 9:00 am Mass and the 6:00 pm Mass. It is a wonderful way to begin our new academic year.

CWT&T NEWS: Catholic Women Today and Tomorrow announce their first event of their new year. Excitement is growing to see Joan Chittister at Fontbonne Academy in Milton on Saturday September 21st from 10:00 to 11:30 am. Tickets are $25.00. Joan's theme will discuss her new book, “THE TIME IS NOW, A Call to Uncommon Courage.” We plan to meet in the parish parking lot at 8:45 am to carpool to Milton and we will stop for lunch on our return. If you plan to attend, it is required that you register yourself @ sacredthreadscenter.org. Also after registering, please call Jeanne Dominick at 781-834-8387 to confirm your attendance. We don't want to leave you behind!

I do not want to rush summer. I just wanted to give you all a heads up about some of the events coming up in September. Don’t forget to take some time to sip lemonade and appreciate the weather. Winter will be here before we know it !!!!
Love, Fr Steve

GRAND ANNUAL COLLECTION 2019
Goal: $100,000  |  Total Received: 61,400

Your Grand Annual envelopes may be placed in the collections baskets or mailed directly to the rectory throughout the year. Funds from this collection help to pay
our weekly bills. Each family is asked to contribute $400. However, what one gives is your choice and no one should give beyond their means. If you did not receive an envelope in the mail, you will find envelopes on the ushers’ tables next weekend. Thank you for your generosity and support of our Parish Family.

God bless you. Father Steve

FLOWER GARDEN COLLECTION - July 20th and 21st
When you attend Mass at Saint Christine’s Church and Saint Theresa’s Chapel this summer, you will notice the gardens around the churches filled with beautiful plants and flowers. Many of our parishioners use the gardens for meditation. Next weekend there will be a second collection to help defray the cost and maintenance of the gardens that we so admire. Please write your check payable to St. Christine’s with Flower Gardens written on memo line. Thank you for your generosity.

Feast of Saint Christine
Saint Christine is the patron saint of our parish as well as millers and archers. We celebrate her feast day this Wednesday, July 24th. Christine accepted Jesus and gave away all her worldly goods to help the poor.

Prayer to Saint Christine
Saint Christine, virgin and martyr, who so loved Jesus that you gave your life for him, teach us to share your love of the poor. Help us to see Jesus in the poor and lonely. Grant that we put out faith in Jesus and not in the riches of the world. Heavenly Father, grant this prayer through the intercession of Saint Christine. Amen.

VOCATIONS : We pray that God will continue to call women and men to serve our church as priests, brothers and sisters.

REFLECTION: How can you see the Lord in your neighbor?

BULLETIN SUPPORTERS: We sincerely thank all of our advertisers who have placed ads in our bulletin. Please support the businesses that advertise in our parish bulletin as their ads help to defray the cost of the bulletin.
