With the “visit” this past week of some snowflakes, I am reminded of the need to share with you the plan for the winter concerning Mass and snowstorms. If Bourne Public Schools are delayed or cancelled due to weather, daily Mass will be cancelled that day. This isn’t so I can get a snow day and sleep in, but rather because our public officials are concerned with the condition of the roads and for the safety of all are asking to keep the roads as clear from traffic as possible. In the event of a snowstorm or other extreme weather occurring on the weekend or during school vacations, “common sense trumps canon law”. I will post if Mass is cancelled on our Facebook and by email through Flocknote (To register for Flocknote, go to www.flocknote.com/sje).
Don’t forget our Mass of Thanksgiving on Tuesday November 26th at 6PM. Again, please bring a canned good that will go to the Bourne Food Pantry. We will also have a special collection for the victims of the Typhoon. Youth are encouraged to wear their school colors in anticipation of the Thanksgiving games. We will have a special blessing for children and youth as well. Following Mass, everyone is invited to the Parish Hall for a free Pasta Dinner! If you are planning on attending the dinner, please RSVP by contacting the Parish Office or through the website so we are able to prepare enough food.
