Thanksgiving Food Drive

For twenty-five years, St. Bridget’s Food Pantry has been providing food to Framingham residents in need.  The Paul Mahoney Memorial Food Drive, to benefit our Pantry, will take place before and after each Mass on Saturday and Sunday, November 19th and 20th.  

 

We expect about 250 households to come for Thanksgiving groceries. Please consider helping us with food or monetary donations during this drive.

 

Most needed items include:  frozen turkeys (we have minimal freezer space and can only take turkeys during the drive), canned meals such as chicken and beef stew, soup, coffee, tea and cocoa.

 

Please be sure that all items are not past their expiration dates. 

 

Look for the white truck which will be parked near St. Bridget’s School door where we will happily take your donations!

 

Thank you for your generosity!

 

Thanksgiving Day Mass

November 24, 2016

8:00AM Mass ONLY

Each year, an inspiring Thanksgiving Mass is celebrated at 8:00AM on Thanksgiving morning at St. Bridget’s Church.  It is a wonderful Mass and we encourage you to attend.  Students from kindergarten through 3rd grade are asked to take a special part in this Mass by dressing up as a Pilgrim or a Native American and participating in the opening procession.  We have a limited number of costumes available at the rectory for those who would like to participate.

 

If your child would like to be a Pilgrim or Native American, please contact Kim DeMeo at kimdemeo@verizon.net with your child’s name and grade by Friday November 18th.  Those who participate will need to sign-out a costume at the rectory and arrive at the church in costume by 7:45AM on Thanksgiving morning.

 

In addition we are looking for a few parents to help with the children on Thanksgiving morning.  If you are available, please let us know.

 

 WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We are in serious need of CAP (Chauffer a Parishioner) Drivers. This program provides to those who are incapable to drive themselves to weekend Masses, giving them an opportunity to be driven by other generous parishioners. Just a simple pick-up and drop-off! The riders are flexible as to what Mass you attend.

 

Unfortunately, our much appreciated volunteer program is in jeopardy of being terminated. The need for riders has increased. However; we do not have enough drivers to meet those needs! We need your help to keep this program running. If you are interested in joining the program as a driver please contact Meaghan ASAP at the rectory: 508-875-5959 or mturchi@stbridgetparish.org.

Thank you for your help in this matter!

 

Honoring Our Veterans and Those Who Currently Serve Our Country

Once again St. Bridget Parish  will honor our Veterans and those serving in the armed forces and Coast Guard in a special insert in the bulletin for Veteran’s Day. Please email a photo of the person to be honored along with their name, rank and picture for the insert. Email photos by October 28 to bulletin@stbridgetparish.org.

 

We look forward to including all those

who proudly serve!
