Welcome to St. Patrick's Parish (Monson)
Home of the St. Peregrine and Miraculous Medal Novenas
And St. Christopher's Parish (Brimfield)
CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Bishop Rozanski has ordered all activities, including Masses, be suspended until further notice! This applies to both parishes and includes CCD classes and all activities and meetings that use any of the parish buildings.
All pastoral and home visits to shut-ins have also been suspended.
Please continue to give your weekly offering by using the church envelopes and either mailing them to the parish rectory (both St. Patrick's and St. Christopher's) or dropping them off (St. Patrick's) so we can pay our bills.
Church Bulletins are on the front porch of St. Patrick's Rectory. We encourage you to pick one up.
The Chalice of Salvation Mass is available on WWLP channel 22 at 10AM on Sunday mornings.
Monday ~ Friday 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM
Monday~Thursday 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM
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.
Important CCD News
There are so many uncertainties. We are in uncharted territories and we ask for your patience as we head forward.
At this point it is too early to tell if Confirmation and First communion will need to be rescheduled. We will do our best to give as much notice as possible.
Please work with your child in their CCD book to keep the learning of faith in the home.
Palm Sunday, April 5th
There will be no Mass on Palm Sunday. Fr. Jack will bless the Palms which will be available Palm Sunday and continuing throughout Holy Week. Palms will be left in a basket in front of the church from 10:00AM to 5:00PM for anyone who would like one.
Spiritual Communion Prayer
My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things and I desire to possess You within my soul. Since I am unable at this moment to receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as already there, and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

Stations of the Cross
What are Stations of the Cross?
The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ's last day. Specific prayers are recited then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.~www.catholic.org~ Please join us on Fridays during Lent to Pray the Stations of the Cross~ 3:00PM at St. Christopher's and 6:15PM at St. Patrick's.
