MOST HOLY TRINITY

First Reading:  Deuteronomy 4:32-34, 39-40

The book of Deuteronomy contains a lengthy speech that Moses addressed to the people as they prepared to enter the Promised Land.  This was a place where the people worshipped many gods and goddesses.  Moses reminds them that there is only one God – the One who brought them out of Egypt.

Second Reading:  Romans 8:14-17

            Paul’s letter to the Romans is his most detailed and important theological work.  In this portion of the letter, Paul stresses the importance of the Holy Spirit in the lives of Christians.  Through the Spirit’s presence within us, we enjoy not only new life but also a new relationship with God, whom we can call by a new name.

Gospel:  Matthew 28:16-20

Question  of  the Week:

Adult:  What signs of God’s love have you witnessed in your life?

Child:  How can you be a sign of God’s love to others this week?

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

HOMEBOUND PARISHIONERS

            St. John’s Parish is blessed with many extraordinary ministers of the Eucharist, many of whom bring Holy Communion to those who are unable to come to church on Sunday.  This is a wonderful ministry and truly connects our homebound parishioners with the rest of the worshipping community through the Eucharist.  We are always interested in identifying people who are homebound and who would like a visit from a Eucharistic Minister.  If you have family members who are homebound or know of parishioners who are homebound and desirous of receiving the Eucharist on a regular basis, please contact the rectory at 617 846-7400.

= = = = =

IMPORTANT NOTICE

            We are updating our communion list for the homebound.  If you are presently bringing communion to anyone in the parish, please give Sister Jane their name, address and phone number.  Call 617 846-7400 or email:  j_iannaccone320@hotmail.com  Please note, if Sister Jane assigned a person to you, you do not need to respond.
