PRAYING FOR PEACE IN OUR FAMILIES THROUGH WORDS AND MUSIC
Did you ever contemplate the beauty of the word 'Peace'? If you or a member of your family was ever involved in a war overseas, the concept of peace means so much; and every time we go to Mass, we are asked to share a greeting of peace with one another in God's presence. Truly peace is something to celebrate when we have it.
In a special way, peace among members of a family is the most important kind of peace, as it establishes the foundation for our children to live lives of peace. Holy Family-Holy Name School and St. Lawrence, Martyr Church invite you and your family to a celebration for peace. On Sunday, October 21st, we will begin our celebration at 9:30am with the recitation of the Rosary of our Blessed Mother, Mary. The 11:00 Mass will be immediately following. The theme will be "The Peace in Our Families". In addition, the Mass will be hosted by Grade 6 and there will be hymns of praise and peace led by the Holy Family-Holy Name School Junior Choir.
Our celebration will be held at St. Lawrence Martyr Church, 110 Summer Street, New Bedford. For more information or directions to the church, call (508) 993-3547. Please make plans to attend this special event with your entire family.
