A Few Words from Father Steve

Dear Friends,
Last week, I ended my homily by saying we can never know who or what God will use to create a miracle. Amazingly, this past June, I celebrated my three-year anniversary in your midst. In that time, I have been blessed to see a multitude of miracles.

Last week, I realized how I miss our choir. As Father Brian noted in his final Mass with us, we realized that we were in the presence of a miracle, God working among His people. Our choir is amazing. They bring life, love and prayer to our liturgies. In addition to our adult choir, I miss the great things about our youth choir. I can't wait to celebrate with them again. I am especially grateful to Meri-Lee for her efforts and her work with our wonderful cantors. She herself is a miracle. During these summer months, Meri-Lee celebrated a birthday, but due to COVID-19, we weren’t able to acknowledge or celebrate it well, but please join me in our prayer of thanksgiving for such incredible talent in our midst.

In fact, I have seen God working miracles at every liturgy, especially in our ministers. As Father Brian also said, we miss our ministers. As I mentioned those who create joyful music, but also I miss every usher, Eucharistic minister, Lector, altar server, and presider. I appreciate how each minister comes to their role prepared and ready. Last week, another one of our excellent altar servers came in the sacristy to say he was off to college. I wish we could have celebrated our seniors by now, but safety is always our priority. If
you are not a minster but feel a call, please see me. I especially invite our children to think about becoming an altar server. I am especially grateful to Mary Doolin and Susie McCarthy who coordinate these efforts. Our ministers are God's miracles.

Finally, I am amazed by God's miracle of your generosity during this difficult time. I noticed the last two weeks in the offertory; we have been close to our budgeted goal. Thank you for that. You are the best. Remember, if it makes it easier for you, we have online giving. I have also especially noticed seeing the Grand Annual increasing closer to the goal of $120,000. Please know of my humble gratitude. You are God's miracles.

In finance, there were two experiences that took place this week that I wanted to share with you. On Thursday, I had just returned from a funeral. Even though the deceased lived in Norwell, she loved Saint Christine's, thus worshiping here. It was a hot and humid day and I had just changed into shorts. When I opened the mail, I was amazed by a donation of $1,000. Another beautiful card accompanied a donation in memory of one of the deceased whose funeral was celebrated last week.

As you know, I almost fell to the floor when a parishioner said he and his wife wanted to match any new donations to Grand Annual up to $5,000 by July 31st and would present me with a check for $5,000. All parishioners remain anonymous but they are all God's miracles.

My friends, thank you for consistently showing me God's presence in the last three years. I can't wait for September when religious education resumes in person and also virtually in unique ways as well and then October when the choirs are safely back to be able to rehearse and to see the true fullness of parish life here. My final advice is to take some time of rest and relaxation in these last days of this month of August. Sit back and experience the multitude of God's miracles around you.

Love, Father Steve

GRAND ANNUAL COLLECTION 2020 - FINAL PUSH - GOAL: $120,000  |  RECEIVED: $118,303
Today, we announce an exciting phase of our Grand Annual fundraising campaign. From today until July 30th a very generous parishioner has offered a dollar-for-dollar match for any new individual contributions up to $5,000. As always, every gift makes a difference. There are envelopes at the doors of the Church and the Chapel as well as an option to give on our Online Giving page. If we raise an additional $5,000 by July 30th, this parishioner and his wife will donate $5,000. Together, we can secure a total donation of $10,000 ending our Grand Annual Campaign for 2020-2021 reaching our original goal of $120,000. I am so grateful to each person for your generous effects of time, talent and treasure. I am especially grateful to this anonymous parishioner for his initiative, creativity and generosity.
