Letters are being sent out announcing the fourth annual $1, 000 raffle. Raffle tickets are $5 each and we are asking each family to buy or sell at least 5 tickets. The drawing will be held on July 13 and all returns should be made no later than July 11. Simply include your name and phone number on the back of each ticket and return with payment in the offertory basket, by mail, or by depositing them in the rectory mail slot. Envelopes should be marked “Attn. Betty.”
The theme this year is “Sun, Surf and Spending Money.” Reach out to family and friends for their support and maybe you or someone you know will have that extra $1, 000 to extend his/her summer vacation or to spend on extra activities at home. More tickets can be obtained by stopping in at the rectory or by calling the rectory (978-452-2564) during regular office hours ( Monday – 10 to 1 PM ) or by calling Betty Tsioulis at 978-809-9199 or Betty Papik at 978-459-2873. Your support is needed.

What is grace?
The simple definition of grace is God’s favor. But what it means to receive such benevolence is demonstrated in boundless ways.
How do we “get” grace, or know it when it’s operating? We recognize grace in the divine mercy, forgiveness, and rescue at work in our lives. The church’s sacraments are ways in which we acquire grace. Church fathers went so far as to say that sacraments “divinize” us: God becomes flesh so that flesh can share in God’s immortality.
Saint Augustine proposed that grace heals and liberates our sin-inclined wills so we can do the will of God. Without grace, we’re literally lost. ... God doesn’t owe us grace even if we’re saintly every moment of the day. But like any gift that comes in a pretty package, grace is not fully received if we don’t open the gift and make use of it.
