This weekend we celebrate the FEAST OF
PENTECOST , also knows as the feast of the decent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles. On this day, we should pause to ask ourselves how much we utilize the strength and grace of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Do we embrace the gifts of knowledge, counsel,
courage, piety, fear of the Lord..? Honestly folks, do we fuel ourselves with the divine energy that is ours for the asking? We should, and do know this, that His response to your request is one of immediacy. “Come Holy Ghost, creator blessed, and in my heart take up they rest,
come with thy aid and heavenly grace to fill my heart, which thou has made.”
Each year we take up the 2nd collection for our
SEMINARIES , which are the institutions we use to train perspective men for the call to Holy Orders. The
Archdiocese of Boston supports three seminaries:
Saint John’s in Brighton (my alma mater), Saint
(Pope) John XXIII (in Weston, for the delayed
vocations) and Redemptoris Mater (Chestnut Hill for the Neo Catechumenate). As you may know from last weekend, I celebrated my 18th anniversary of ordination to the Presbyterate of Jesus Christ; how wonderful, difficult, painful and joyful these years have been. I have had many of you with me for the last eight and a half years, and hope you realize how much joy you have and continue to bring to my life and ministry. This year’s collection, for our
Seminarians is June 7th. To everyone who has
supported this collection these many years, be
assured of a remembrance in my prayers, for it was through your financial support that I received an exceptional education and priestly formation.
I have received some nice feedback on the new
BULLETIN FORMAT and the various columns
included within. If you have suggestions regarding content or style please be sure to drop us an email at office@stanns.net. Included in the bulletin is a running series addressing our push into social media outreach and evangelization. While technology can seem daunting and impossible to navigate through, we are asked as Christians to be bold, to step out of the box, and to try new things in spreading the gospel. This is where the Holy Spirit comes in! We are
presently spreading gospel values through our
Missionary Outreach programs, but there remains a whole group of disfranchised Catholics who need our outreach, this can only happen through the new
social media tools we are developing. It will be helpful to follow this social media series and to see whereyou can help. Happy Memorial Day. Summer’s Here!

2015 APRIL MISSION TRIP
LONG BRANCH, NEW JERSEY
HURRICANE SANDY DISASTER RELIEF
“This April NJ trip was one of my favorite mission trips I have ever been on. We had the opportunity to enter into another family’s hardship and help them through this challenging time in their life. We weren’t
just working on another house, we were working on a home for a family with a daughter and a son who we had the privilege of meeting. These are the kind of moments that you will always cherish for the rest of your life.”
“Y ou tell us that to love God and neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly
concrete: it means seeing in every person the face of the Lord to be served, to serve him
concretely. And you are, dear brothers and sisters, the face of Jesus.
- Pope Francis
William and 11 adults and teens traveled for a week during April Vacation to the Jersey Shore to help rebuild homes that had been damaged during Hurricane Sandy.

2015 APRIL MISSION TRIP
LONG BRANCH, NEW JERSEY
HURRICANE SANDY DISASTER RELIEF

The April Mission Trip to New Jersey was such an inspiring and educational trip. I was astounded at the damage that was still prevalent on the Jersey Coast, and the number of homes and families that are still displaced and in need of our assistance. What an honor it was, to be part of a missionary team; 6
teens and six adults from a variety of Christian
churches that stayed together, prayed together and worked in the Lord’s service for families in need.
BUSINESS MANAGER’S MESSAGE
Hi Fellow Parishioners! As you've seen by the expanded format of the Sunday Bulletin, we are in the process of improving the communication
within this parish. We have a Facebook page that was recently shared to over 7,000 viewers.
There will be other methods that we will be launching over the next several months. One way you can help us is to confirm that the Rectory has your proper email address. Many thanks and God Bless! Mike
