“Cash for Christmas” Raffle
Since our two festivals have been cancelled, in order to raise money for the parish, we are having a raffle with one prize for $1,000 cash. The drawing will be held on Monday, November 30th; tickets are $5.00 each and must be returned by November 29th. Tickets may be obtained after the 4 o’clock Mass, at the rectory or by calling the rectory during regular office hours (Monday, 10-1), or by calling Betty T. (978-459-3649) or Betty P. (978-459-2873). We ask you to continue the support you have shown for the parish when we were able to hold our festivals and, with God’s help, we hope to be able to go back to them in 2021.
