Candlelight Service of Remembrance

The Candlelight Service of Remembrance was held on Saturday, Dec. 7, and was well attended by nearly 200 hundred people. Many brought with them their pain and sorrow and left with a feeling of comfort and peace after being lighting a candle of remembrance and being anointed as we quietly sung Silent Night.  As they left the church a handout was distributed with suggestions how to “Handle Grieving During Christmas”. For a copy of the handout, please contact Fr. Joe Quinn, OFM, at 617-542-6440 Ext. 239 or by email to [email protected].
