New Year's Day
Mass for the Solemnity of Mary, Mother of God
Monday, December 31, New Year's Eve - 5:00 pm
Tuesday, January 1, New Year's Day - 9:00 am
The Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God is a liturgical celebration and a Holy Day of Obligation. A "Solemnity" is the highest of celebrations, higher than a memorial or a feast day. We recognize Mary as "full of grace" as she listened to God and said "yes" to His invitation to be the Holy Mother of His son.
We can learn from Mary as she is the perfect role model for living a Stewardship lifestyle. She always directs our gaze towards Jesus. Trust in Him and know that He has a better plan for you than you could every imagine.

"The Theology of the Church"
Beginning January 3rd, Fr. Nick will be offering a course on Ecclesiology for adults that presents a systematic study of the Church, examining its scriptural foundations and its historical and theological developments. This class will be held on Thursdays: Jan. 3, 10, 17, 24, 31, Feb. 21, 28, March 7, 14, and 21 for one hour beginning at 10:00 AM in the parish hall.
This course is open to all adults who are open to learning and willing to participate in informed discussions. This class came to fruition because the Bishop asked Fr. Nick to teach a class at Assumption College for Diaconate candidates and those in the Masters of Ministry Program. He has done much research and reading in preparation and decided to offer a version of the class to the parishioners of St. Mary. There has been a strong response to this course offering. Please contact the Parish Office at 508-278-2226 or email email@example.com if you would like to join the class. There is no cost to attend. Call now to reserve your spot and come learn more about your Church!
