Welcome to St. Patrick's Parish (Monson)
Home of the St. Peregrine and Miraculous Medal Novenas
And St. Christopher's Parish (Brimfield)
Though separate and distinct, we are Roman Catholic Communities that show our faith through love, forgiveness, healing, and compassion as taught by our Lord, Jesus Christ. Our willingness to share time and talent is what makes us truly rich. We strive to grow in our daily commitment to become better members of God's family. Called and led by the Spirit, we seek to know and celebrate Jesus through Word, Sacrament, and Service. It is our Mission and hope that we will be humble in our endeavors, and that our compassion will include all who are in need. We welcome all who attend our Eucharistic celebrations, all visitors, all new friends and hope that you will favor one of our parishes with your prayer, your presence, your talents.

Inclement Weather Procedure
For Both Parishes
In order to protect the safety of parishioners and myself, if school is canceled due to inclement weather then weekday Mass/Communion Service is also cancelled. The church buildings will remain locked and parish offices will be closed. The parish Administrative Assistant will attempt to place a specific intention in the next available opening. Weekend Mass is never cancelled unless dictated by the Bishop or due to a physical problem with the church building~no heat, no electricity, etc.
Meals for the Moment
Let us help in your time of need.
As a parishioner of St. Christoper''s are you or someone in your immediate household faced with an illness, injury, unexpected crisis or other life changing event or challenge? The Catholic Women's Club has a group of volunteers that are willing to make meals for you ( and your family that resides with you) during difficult times. Whether it is due to an illness, birth of a new child, death of a loved one or surgery, call on us to help ease your burden. We will deliver meals to your home for you and your family for a short time. Anyone who would like to be added to our list to prepare a meal for someone in time of need please let us know. Please contact CWC President Sheila Fortier, the rectory (245-7274) or talk to a CWC member you know to request meals or to join the team.
For February's Food Bank collection, we are asking for any kind of canned fruits or vegetables. Green beans, potatoes, carrots, peas, mixed veggies, pineapple, peaches, pears, mixed fruits, applesauce (with or without cinnamon). Anything you are willing and able to donate to help families in need is most appreciated and can be placed in the Food Bank basket. There is a constant need for pasta, sauce, peanut butter and fluff as well. There is a constant need for cold cereal, peanut butter, jelly, fluff, tuna fish, and canned fruit. These items are welcome anytime.
Monson Open Pantry
2 dependable volunteers to deliver perishable and non-perishable food to clients in Monson. It would require 2-3 hours of time with each delivery once a month. Additional time for distribution of food prior to Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving. Call Candace at 596-2482 if you are able to help.
Beginning on Friday February 28th, and running for 6 weeks, we will be holding a Study of Parables. There is no cost for this study! All that we ask is that you bring your Bible! If you'd like to join us, please meet at St. Christopher's Parish Center Friday, February 28th at 10am. Each session will be one hour long.
