Zoom Livestream CCD Children Virtual Brunch with Father Vince – Saturday 5/2/20 at 1030 AM

Dear Parents of CCD Children of OLOP:

I hope this message finds you and your families doing well. In an effort to socially distance and protect ourselves and our families we have had to temporarily give up a number of opportunities to gather in person as a community of faith. I have missed seeing you, and have missed the joy and laughter of the children. I’d like to invite you and your children to join me on Saturday, May 2, 2020 at 10:30 am, via Live Stream on Zoom for “Saturday Brunch with Fr. Vince”. We’ve developed a program of songs, arts & crafts, conversation, and prayer that we think the children, and you, will enjoy. Our tentative schedule includes:

1. Vikki Thomas will teach the children a fun song (including the hand gestures);
2. Rose Dupre and Sarah Thomas Hitchings will lead the children through a special May arts and craft project;
3. I’ll take a little time to have a conversation with the children; and
4. We’ll end with a decade of the Rosary and a Marian Song.

Our brunch program should last about an hour and will give the children an opportunity to see each other and enjoy each other’s company (virtually).

Please let me know if you and your family are available to join us by Friday, May 1. I’ll be sending an invite with the login information next week. We’ll also be forwarding a PDF for you to print out for the arts and crafts project.

Please pass this along to members of your family or other parishioners with children between the ages of 5 and 12.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. I look forward to the day when we will see each other in person at our home of Our Lady of Purgatory. Stay well and continue to be united in prayer.

God Bless.

Fr. Vincent

CALLING ALL MYO/MYA

Dear Friends:

I would like to set up a time to meet with the MYO and a different time to meet with the MYA. I NEED YOUR HELP!

Could you please have your MYO/MYA send me an email to ourladyofpurgatory@verizon.net?

Please have them include their email, phone number, and address, so that I can begin to keep in touch with them to set up meetings and talks. I would like to set a day for the MYO and a day for the MYA, within the next week or so. I know they are out there, I just need help to find them! Please pass this on to others you may know who would like to include their children.

Stay well and thank you for your help.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent

Saint Anthony’s in Fall River MYO 2 Day Virtual Retreat – Friday 4/24/20-Saturday 4/25/20

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

St. Anthony in Fall River is hosting a 2 Day Virtual Retreat for the MYO. Information is listed below.

In light of everything occurring in our world that is keeping us away from our loved ones and our communities, our parish’s MYO is planning to host a 2-day virtual retreat for our MYO next weekend (Friday, April 24 and Saturday, April 25), each day with a mix of ice breakers, talks, and prayer. I would love if you would pass this on to your MYO Advisors/Youth so that our area youth can have a chance to see one another, even if virtually.

We have left off the Zoom Meeting Details from the flyer for security reasons and ask that you/the Advisor personally provide these details to the youth that would be attending. I have provided them below.

I ask you to please pass this on to your MYO aged children. Stay well and healthy.

In Christ,

Fr. Vincent

Important Message from Father Vincent – Parishioner Assistance

Dear Parishioners of OLOP:

Messiah Qam! I pray all of you are well and staying safe. I want to check in on all of you to see if anyone is in need of anything. The young or elderly, I ask you to please let me know if there is anything you need. The past several weeks have been very difficult, to say the least.

I want to share with you something that may be difficult for many of us. I have received donations specifically for helping our parishioners who are in need of assistance with food and other necessities. I know we are all private about matters such as these, but with the situation the way it is, I need to stress to all of you, that I do have some assistance available. If anyone is in need, I am asking you to please reach out to me. Please know that this will be confidential between you and me. We have to know that we are all in this together and I do not want anyone to have to struggle with groceries or other necessities during this time.

I pray that if you are in need, you will reach out to me. The community of OLOP is community that cares for each other and are willing to help each other in times of need. Please stay safe and well. We pray that Almighty God will rescue us from this situation and that many will turn to Him in Thanksgiving. He will never abandon us.

In Christ,
Fr. Vincent

I must sadly inform you that Mary Madsen passed away this morning in Bloomfield, Connecticut. Mary is the mother of Catherine Madsen and mother-in-law of Joseph Barckett. Our condolences go out to Mary’s husband George, Catherine and Joseph, the their entire family. We will pray for her soul and for her family during this difficult time. We ask Almighty God, on this day of the Lord’s resurrection, to welcome Mary into His kingdom and may her soul rest in peace. Allah yerhamma.

In Christ,
