I would like to thank all of the men who spent last Saturday onthe parish grounds SCRAPING & PAINTING the hall. Under the leadership of parishioner and Brighton native Ed Neary we
were able to take care of the side of the hall that faces the church, as well as scrape the rear of the hall. We have about another days worth of work to complete the project, and I will get back to everyone on a date. Please check out our
Facebook and Twitter feeds to see a funny picture of me. The picture was taken immediately upon my shaking hands with the outstretched hand of Casey Rein, who exploiting my naïve nature, applied paint to his hand; the last laugh was on him, as I think it’s a great picture of me, and goodness knows I don’t have many of them. We should never be too serious, as laughter is the best of medicines and sings God’s praises.
I would like to also thanks those who generously contributed to the HOLY FATHER’S COLLECTION, aka Peter’s Pence, in which we raised $1200.00! Though we may not meet the folks who benefit from this fund, we should find joy knowing that we helped improve the lot of those who have less than we do.
As INDEPENDENCE DAY falls on a Saturday, the Holiday will be observed by the parish staff on Monday, thus the offices will be closed, and will reopen on Tuesday, July 7th at 9:00am.
Also the CCD Office is closed for the week as the Director and the Missionary Director will be in Worcester on a Service Week with a group of our teens and adults. We are still accepting
LATE REGISTRATION, and remember you can do this through our parish website at www.stanns.net.
The GRAND ANNUAL LAUNCH will be held next weekend at each of the Masses. Each family is asked to make a pledge of $300.00 and you can remit payment trough 4 installments of $75.00 or through a onetime gift. This is an important
revenue stream for the parish and your participation is necessary for us to continue to carryout the Mission of the Church in our parish. I would ask those who have not
participated in the drive in the past, to have a change of heart and realize that your gift will go to evangelizing, that is, to bringing the love and joy of Jesus to the sick, the elderly, those in trouble and those who normally go without; I ask
you to take the time to invest in the needs of the poor.
We are very blessed to have had Lucas O’Brien undertake his EAGLE SCOUT PROJECT on a SHED for the Church. We will be using that space to house our winter supplies, including our
snow blowers. The shed will be enhanced with shingles, signage, lattice work for the bottom section and plantings.
Hopefully as you read this we will have completed landscaping work around the Blessed Mother Grotto. I would like to remind everyone the Grotto was another Eagle Scout Project
undertaken by Brendan Looney. It is awesome to realize that this work has been undertaken by the youth of our parish.
PASTORAL ASSOCIATE’S CORNER
Mrs. Catherine Rein is a Certified Pastoral Associate and Director of Religious Education at St. Ann by the Sea Parish. She lives in Marshfield with her husband Casey and 2 sons, William and Robert
In an effort to communicate with those who attend daily Mass each week we have created a Daily Mass Email Hotline. This hotline will update Daily Mass goers with Mass and Holy Communion Service schedules each week. If you wish to be on the email list, please contact me at 781-834-4953, or by email at office@stanns.net.
Our parish Homebound Ministry brings love, companionship, prayer and Communion to those who find themselves homebound by illness, age or infirmity. We have a wonderful team of Extraordinary Ministers, both men and women, who will come to your home to bring you or your loved one the Holy Eucharist

Has the Holy Spirit spoken to your heart to join us as a liturgical minister? We have
New Liturgical Ministry Trainings scheduled this month and once monthly for
the summer for those of you who would like more information, or would like to be trained as a Lector, Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, an Usher, Altar Server, daily Sacristan or Hospitality Greeter. Please see the schedule

BUSINESS MANAGER’S MESSAGE
As you have a household budget so does Saint
Ann by the Sea. The fiscal year for the Parish runs from July 1st to June 30th, so Father Carmichael, the Parish Accountant Michael Seyffert, and I are in the process of calculating what the expenses were this past year. Using this information we are also creating the budget for the coming year which we will present to the Archdiocese when complete. The budget is calculated by taking what the expenses have been historically (such as heat, electricity, etc.), and adding what sort of expenditures we will need the coming year (such as a roof repair or a new boiler). As you are well aware of, this past winter was especially rough; expenses hit the Parish hard. In spite of this, you, the Parish and friends of Saint Ann by the Sea, supported your church to the extent that we were able to stay on!budget in spite of the added expenses during the winter. This is an amazing accomplishment and shows how much you good people will support the Parish
Saturday Mass is at 5;PM starting May 23rd 2015

Dear Prayer Shawl Ministry,
What a wonderful surprise to receive a beautiful yellow blanket to
cover my shoulders while a patient at BID-Plymouth! It’s perfect and is now keeping me comfortable at home. Your beautiful work and talent are appreciated.

Dear Fr. Carmichael,
We brought our grandson Brady to the 7:30am Mass on Thursday, June 18. We were not sure if he would bother you or your faithful parishioners.
You made us feel so welcome, comfortable and warmedby the love and acceptance you gave to us!
You welcomed Brady’s noises, blessed him when I went to communion and truly made us feel so good!

You are truly an example of Jesus by your complete acceptance, love and kindness shown to us and everyone who is blessed to know you.
We feel so lucky to have found you and St. Ann’s parish when our daughter moved to Marshfield!!
Thank you, thank you and thank you for being Jesus
