Baptism Class for Young Children

St. Paul will offer a Baptism class for families with young children (pre-school to age 7) who have not yet received the sacrament of Baptism. The class will be held May 1 at 11:30am in the parish house. If you are interested, or know someone who would be interested, please contact Lisa Stover at baptisms@stpaulhingham.net or 781-556- 5408. 


 ANNUAL ANOINTING MASS AND LUNCHEON

The Annual Anointing Mass will be held at St. Paul Upper Church on Saturday, April 30th at 11:00 am. Luncheon will follow in the school gym.  PLEASE RSVP BY APRIL 26TH: 781-749-0587

The Anointing of the Sick is a sacramental healing, and thus an act of faith. This sacrament graces the entire person—-body, soul, and spirit. The Sacrament is a gift of the Holy Spirit, one of strengthening, peace and courage to overcome the difficulties that go with the illness and frailties of old age. It is a blessing to celebrate the Sacrament of the Sick with family members and members of the community. All are invited and encouraged to bring others who might benefit from this sacrament.

If you are interested in volunteering to assist with the luncheon, please contact the rectory at 781-749-0587. Thank you!

 YEAR OF MERCY

DIVINE MERCY CHAPLET

As part of St. Paul's celebration of the Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis, we intend to recite the Chaplet of Divine Mercy daily at 3:00 p.m. in the lower church, beginning Jan. 1.  We encourage all the faithful to recite the Chaplet at this hour wherever they may be. There will be booklets for you to borrow in the church. You will recall that this was first requested by Jesus to St. Faustina.

 


Lector Ministry Opportunity 

Is the Holy Spirit calling you to proclaim? If so, please consider joining the parish’s lector ministry and serving through proclamation of God’s Word at Sunday Mass. Lectors serve their ministry about once a month. Workbooks and individual coaching/feedback are provided to assist new Lectors. Please call Ed Boylan at 781-749-1558 or e-mail him at boylan.family@comcast.net and join 25 of your fellow parishioners in this important ministry! High school/local college students are especially welcomed. We have a particular need for 7am, 9am, and 11am Masses. Thank you.


Family Mass Prayer Families Needed

Hey Kids! Would you and your family like to do the readings at the 10am Family Mass? You can sign up and download the readings on-line by using Volunteer Spot; Just click here...

Or contact Cyndi Kester at cyndikester@me.com for more information. The prayer family reads the Scripture passage(s) and the petitions (prayers of the faithful) for that week and also brings the gifts of wine and bread to the priest.
