Christmas Fair    November 6-8
The year 2020 has been a year like no other in recent history.  We all have had some uncertainty in our lives, but our faith helps us get through these uncertain times.  Although a traditional Christmas Fair is not possible due to the current state guidelines, there is still a need for this type of fundraising for our parish.  The 2020 St. Mary’s Parish Christmas Fair will look a bit different this year and will be held from Friday, November 6th through Sunday, November 8th. This year the Fair will be featuring our popular Raffle Festival, Theme Basket Raffles and Silent Auction keeping social distance guidelines and safety in mind.

Celebration of the Priesthood Dinner

We are pleased to share with you the links to watch the 12th annual Celebration of the Priesthood virtual gala that was held Tuesday, September 29th. It was a great turnout! More than 1,400 people watched the live stream of the gala on Facebook and YouTube, with many others watching on Catholic TV. Thousands more have watched the program since that time.
Watch it here:  YouTube: click here.
                       Facebook: click here.

We are very grateful to former Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford Jr. for headlining the program. As Cardinal Seán said, “We are blessed by his service to God and country and his admiration and support for the priests who had a positive impact in his life.”     
The Cardinal extends his great appreciation to Joe D’Arrigo and the Clergy Health and Retirement Trust staff, Pat Bartram and Maribeth Wahle and their team at Boston Catholic Development Services for their leadership presenting the event.
We are blessed by the deep commitment of our gala Chairs Karen and Mark Vachon and Carol and Mike Shaughnessy in helping to raise much needed funds that will benefit the health and well-being of active and senior priests in good standing.

Next year’s gala is September 21, 2021. Mark the date!
Thank you and God Bless,
+Peter J. Uglietto
