   The Parish Office will be closed, Thursday, Nov. 25th & Friday, Nov. 26th in observance of the Thanksgiving Holiday.

SNOW DAYS

Reminder: St. Mary's follows the same closures as the school system. When the Dartmouth Schools close for a Snow Day, all activities at St. Mary's that same day will be canceled.

If you are planning on being away during the winter months, please call or email the Parish Office with the dates that you will be away.
Thank you!

SOCIAL CONCERNS MINISTRY AND THE HOLIDAYS

   The Social Concerns Ministry is grateful for the generous donations we have received so far from our parishioners and friends. We hope to be able to provide gift cards for Thanksgiving dinner basics to approximately 65 families across 11 local schools.
   Our friendly and familiar Turkey Tags are available at church entrances to provide details of the support requests. Should we exceed our Thanksgiving needs, we will be able to begin planning for Christmas gift cards for food and/or gifts and clothing.
   We are always pleased to share your generosity with those needing a little extra assistance during the holidays.
   Thank you, your donation makes a difference!

SPECIAL COLLECTION, NOVEMBER 20-21, 2021

     In the United States, one in six people lives in poverty. The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) supports programs that address the causes of poverty and provide a sustainable future for those struggling across the country.
     For the Fall River Diocese, please keep in mind that 25% of the funds we collect will remain in our diocese to fund local antipoverty projects.
     This weekend, Nov. 20th & Nov. 21st, 5% of our offertory collection will be allocated to The Catholic Campaign for Human Development.
