Golf, Food, FunSt. Ann's and St. John's Collaborative Golf Tournament POSTPONED!

After prayerful consideration, the Together In Christ Collaborative Golf Committee has decided to postpone our Golf Tournament. This was a wonderful fundraiser meant to support both St. John and St. Ann and we hope to reschedule at another time. We are sure there are many reasons our Parishioners were unable to support this fall fundraiser at this time and we welcome your thoughts and suggestions so that when we reschedule on behalf of the Parish we have the best tools for success!

There are several people to thank for their work on getting this Golf Tournament organized. Your passion for our Parishes and your willingness to share your gifts and talents is heartwarming. Please join us in thanking Russ Champoux, our Golf Professional, and Rebecca Dawson, our golf tournament web-site designer. We would also like to thank River Bend Country Club in West Bridgewater for being willing to partner with our Parishes to host the golf tournament. Please consider heading over for a round of Golf. The Golf Committee would like to thank Prophet-Chapman, Cole and Gleason Funeral Home for agreeing to be our first spon-sor for our Tournament. Your support is very much appreciated and a blessing!

The members of St. Vincent dePaul Conference wish to thank you who have been SO generous in returning your grocery items in the blue bags. You have made a significant contribution to W. B. Food Pantry.
HandicappedHANDICAPPED SEATING
The front row on both sides of the aisle has been designated as a reserved section directly in front of the altar. There is room for both the caretaker as well as the handicapped person. Holy Communion will be given to them first. It is hoped that this seating arrangement will provide better visibility and allow for greater participation in the Mass giving the elderly the respect that they so deserve.
LITERATURE RACK
Literature RackThere is a literature rack in the back of the Church which contains reading materials that may be of interest to you. If you wish, you may keep the publication or return them to the literature rack the following week for someone else to read. Some of these are replaced weekly and others monthly.
