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.

PENTECOST

First Reading:  Acts 2:1-11

Pentecost was a Jewish feast that celebrated the beginning of the harvest.  It took place 50 days after the feast of Passover.  Jewish pilgrims came to Jerusalem from all over the ancient world for the celebration.  Today we hear how Pentecost became a Christian feast.

Second Reading:  Galatians 5:1-25

            In concluding his letters, St. Paul always had a section instructing his converts about the correct way to live as Christians.  Today’s passage comes near the end of his letter to the Galatians who lived in what is today central Turkey.  Paul offers a sharp contrast between life in the flesh (meaning:  life prone to sin) and life in the Spirit.

Gospel:  John 20:19-23 (appearance to the disciples)

Question of the Week:

Adult:  When has the Holy Spirit given you the strength to act with courage?

Child:  When and where do you need the Holy Spirit’s help to speak out?

“We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life”

The power of the Resurrection story is so overwhelming that it takes us 50 days to celebrate during which time the Church continues initiating new members through the Sacraments of Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation.  This all leads to the climax of the season, Pentecost Sunday, when we welcome the presence of the Holy Spirit into our assembly and into our lives.  It is the Spirit that keeps the work of Christ alive within us.
