Hello Dear Parish Family,
It is difficult to believe that it’s already May. The Month of May has become a time to honor our Blessed Mother, Mary. In our last email we mentioned that Pope Francis has asked us to make a special effort this month to pray the rosary asking for Mary’s intercession in stopping the coronavirus pandemic. Can you commit to reciting the rosary at least once a week? “Love the Madonna and pray the Rosary, for her Rosary is the weapon against the evils of the world today. All graces given by God pass through the Blessed Mother.” – St. Padre Pio
We continue to pray for all of you. We pray for your health, your happiness as well as your spiritual lives. If you have any questions, special needs or prayer intentions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the parish office at 603-883-0757 ext. 2.

In closing, we wish all the mothers of our parish family a blessed Mother’s Day! “God’s blessings on our mothers young and young at heart, those just around the corner or just a little further. Those mothers who are a phone call away or a prayer away sharing joy with our Creator. God’s blessings on all women who have loved and shaped us with motherly care and compassion.”
May the Lord bless you,
Bishop Christian and the Parish Staff
