"With One Voice" Capital Campaign

For a number of years, we have considered the possibility of installing a full capacity elevator for those with mobility issues. We plan to install a fully accessible elevator that will allow parishioners to go from the lower level to the upper level of the church. Additionally, we will create accessible restrooms both on the Church and ground level. This will allow greater access for all of our community.

Weekly Reflection

Sermon on the Mount Part II

02-16-2020Rev. Brian F. Manning

One of the two biggest topics that is often discussed is the amount of traffic we now have and how few parking places there are. Indeed rush hour and congestion now seems to run all day, from very early morning until very late evening. Parking spaces in the City of Boston can cost between forty and sixty dollars, with monthly rates not too much less. We know here in Franklin how difficult it is to park at many of the houses of worship, including our own. The rules for parking that apply to hydrants, corners, driveways, and access ramps are not always strictly followed. Our Town graciously relaxes the parking rules somewhat for all of our churches on Sundays, but the safety laws still apply. Some folks do not want to know how to use the common sense values of safety and courtesy. It is so normal today for people to think that they are special and that rules and laws do not apply to them, only to other people. Our scripture this weekend invites us to ponder about the spirit and letter of the law and also our freedom to choose.
