Mass Stipends

The priests are now able to accept Mass stipends. Please observe the following points regarding them:

  • The customary Mass stipend is $20. (Make checks out to "Mary Immaculate Church").
  • Requests for a specific date will be honored, if possible, but must be submitted at least one month prior to the requested date.
  • Gregorian series of Masses are offered only for deceased parishioners.

Confessions

Heard 45 minutes before each Mass. Note: Confessions begin at 8:45am in Stoneham & 3:15pm in Hallowell. Please arrive early enough if you wish to avail yourself of the sacrament of Penance. Confessions will end five minutes before Mass, in order that Father may begin Mass promptly.

Sunday Catechism for Children

Classes will begin immediately after Mass in the little nook next to the kitchen. Classes will be geared toward First Communicants for the first month or so, but all children 9 and under are urged to attend.

Please help in the planning of these classes by notifying the Sisters of the names and ages of your children who will be attending.

Sacraments

Please call Father to make arrangements for the Sacraments of Baptism, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction.

***Blessing of Religious Articles will take place at the Communion Rail after Mass on the 1st Sunday of the month; Confraternity meeting on 3rd Sunday.

Today's Quotation

Only one offense is now vigorously punished, an accurate observance of our fathers' traditions. For this cause the pious are driven from their countries and transported into the deserts. The people are in lamentation.... Joy and spiritual cheerfulness are no more; our feasts are turned into mourning; our houses of prayer are shut up; our altars are deprived of spiritual worship. No longer are there Christians assembling, teachers presiding, saving instructions, celebrations, hymns by night, or that blessed exultation of souls, which arises from communion and fellowship of spiritual gifts.... The ears of the simple are led astray, and have become accustomed to heretical profaneness. The infants of the Church are fed on the words of impiety. For what can they do? Baptisms are in Arian hands; the care of travelers, visitation of the sick, consolation of mourners, succors of the distressed.... Which all, being performed by them, become a bond to the people... so that in a little while, even though liberty be granted us, no hope will remain that they, who are encompassed by so lasting a deceit, should be brought back again to the acknowledgment of the truth.

- St. Basil the Great (ca. 330-ca. 379), Epistulae, in a letter to the bishops of Italy and Gaul (in 376)
