“I will be their God and they shall be my people.” (Jeremiah 31:33) What does it mean to be God’s people? It means we recognize that everything we have and everything we are belongs to God. We aren’t “owners” of anything, we are merely “stewards” of the gifts God has given us. It means we are willing to use our gifts and our lives to care for our family, our neighbors and for people we don’t know, just as God cares for each of us.
From Darkness to Light...
It's been a long year to say the least! It was a year ago this week when it seemed everything around us shutdown – Masses included.
There have been many challenges along the way, but many blessings too! We have prayed, we have served, we have been together in many different ways.
Please take a moment to watch the video below and look back on our year as a parish family.
We look forward to welcoming you and your family to St. Mary’s for Easter. The parish continues to follow the protocols and guidelines from the State of MA for Places of Worship and from the Diocese of Worcester.
There will be limited seating for all Easter Sunday Masses and Preregistration is required. (No reservation needed for the Easter Vigil Mass on Saturday at 7:30pm)
If you require assistance preregistering, please contact Kerry in the Pastoral Center at (508) 845-6341.
