Bulletins and Many May Happenings!
First Communions and Confirmations
As the Easter Season winds down we enter what is affectionally known as the "Sacramental Season". This is the season where our young folk are invited to the table to receive the Lord for the first time and our teens (and two adults) will receive the sacrament of Confirmation. During this month of May please join us in praying for our youngsters, teens, and families as they receive these sacraments. They are our hope and our future. We thank all we have worked to catechize these kids and all those behind the scenes for the liturgy. Normally you would all be invited to these celebrations but due to COVID we must restrict attendance, though we know you will be with them in spirit. We especially thank the coordinator of First Eucharist- Eleanor Hurley and the Coordinators of Confirmation - Lori Handerhan and Jen Olivieri.
Planning Our Future
As more people are getting vaccinated and comin back to Mass we have begun to look at what parish life might look like post-pandemic. We are turning back to our pastoral plan and re-examining our efforts at evangelization and bringing back those who may have lost their way. We ask for your prayers, time, talent and treasure to make St. Isidore a great parish!
Confessions remain on Mondays and Thursdays 5-6pm at Sts. Martha and Mary. Confessions will now be heard in the Reconciliation Room.
The Sacred Heart Thrift Shop (at 340 Centre St. Middleboro) is reopening! After being closed last year due to COVID, we are pleased to announce that they are now receiving donations and will be open beginning on May 5, 930am- 430pm. (Please no appliances, tvs, etc. Please do not leave donations if it is raining.) The garage is already full of bargains as people cleaned out their closets during the pandemic!
2021 Catholic Appeal Update
We are pleased to share that even during these difficult times, St. Isidore Parish has raised $45,578.00 toward our 2021 Catholic Appeal goal of $77,895. Our heartfelt thanks to all who have helped make our campaign a success so far. Whether you are attending Mass in person or watching from home, we invite you to join us in supporting the Catholic Appeal. We recognize that many of you may be navigating your own financial challenges but ask for your prayerful consideration of a gift to the 2021 Catholic Appeal at whatever level is comfortable for you. If you have not received a Catholic Appeal letter or email request, donations can be made on line at www.bostoncatholicappeal.org Every gift, regardless of the size, is meaningful and can make an impact. Your participation in our Appeal is very much appreciated by our parish and the thousands that are served through the Archdiocesan Central Ministries. This is our Church and when you support the Appeal, you support us!
