Happy Fourth of July07-03-2020Rev. Brian F. Manning
Dear Parishioners and Friends of Saint Mary’s,
The recent rain caused our main server to stop working and the letter which I had been diligently writing over the previous few days is on it and I have no access to it. This is a small inconvenience in life for me, and actually a great gain for you! This substitute letter will be very short!
I would like to wish you, your loved ones and your friends a Happy Fourth of July. To be sure this is a very, very different holiday weekend for all of us, but we can still enjoy the time and days.
Just to remind you, our Masses on the week end (Saturday 4 PM and Sunday 7:30 AM and 10:30 AM – door open ½ hour ahead of time) continue with great safety and reverence.
Enjoy the holiday week end! and God bless,
Welcome Christ in Others06-28-2020Fr. Brian
Way back “in the olden days” when I was young and in elementary school, we always went from the city to my grandmother’s cottage in sunny seaside Scituate for a good part of the summer. Our first cousins and also my brothers and sisters in various configurations of age groups would be there for most of the summer. All the time we were there, lots of relatives and friends would also come to visit for the day and sometimes for the weekends. Even though at times it was very crowded and quite noisy, it was never too crowded or too noisy because loved ones were all there.READ MORE
