Today’s Readings
As today is the feast of the Dedication of the Lateran Basilica in
Rome, each of the readings related in some way to churches – the
buildings in which we worship. The Lateran Basilica is the official Church of Rome and the Pope, not St. Peter with which we
tend to associate the Vatican. The first reading from Ezekiel
speaks of the temple and the holy living waters which flow from
it. Ezekiel 47 reminds us that what occurs inside the church building is incredibly important, the Eucharist, called in the Catechism
of the Catholic Church, the “source and summit of Christian life.”
Churches and holy water are a principal part of our Catholic faith.
We enter the church through baptism and as we enter our Catholic
churches, we find holy water to remind us of that Baptism and to
prompt us to remember that we are in a holy place, a place where
we gather as a community, united as the Body of Christ. We are
the stewards of this church, this holy place where we can disregard the burdens of the world and join together to receive the life
giving waters of the Word and the Eucharist. Yes, we are the
church, but there is more to it than that. As Paul wrote to the
Ephesians: “In him you are also being built together into a dwelling place for God.” - CatholicStewardship.com
VETERANS DAY
Tuesday, November 11th is Veteran’s Day, a time for us to honor
all those who have served our nation in the armed forces. We ask
you to join with us in praying for our veterans whose memories,
stories, and tears are a reminder that our freedom was purchased
at high cost and should never be taken for granted. We remember
those who have returned from tours of duty with physical and
emotional scars reflect the stark realities of war. We hold in our
prayers all those who made the supreme sacrifice, giving their
very lives so that we might enjoy the blessings of life, liberty, and
justice for all. Please join us for evening Mass on Veteran’s Day,
Tuesday, November 11th at 7:00 PM.
CHRISTMAS GIVING TREE
Each fall, in preparation for Christmas, the Parishioners of Sacred
Heart have been most generous in helping us provide holiday gift
assistance to families experiencing financial hardship. Applications for our “Giving Tree” were sent home to families of our
parish RE program so that they might submit requests for their
family if they are in need. Additional applications may be found
in the church for those members of our community who might be
in need of help or may know someone who is in need. We hope
to have applications returned on or before Thursday, November
20th so that tags can be available on the Giving Tree on the weekend of November 22nd and 23rd as many enjoy shopping on
Thanksgiving
Weekend. Please note
that Giving Tree
requests are for children ages infant/
toddler to age 12 years
ONLY and only one
registration form per
family should be
submitted.

COORDINATOR OF USHERS NEEDED AT 10:00
MASS
We are in need of a volunteer coordinator of ushers and greeters
for the 10:00AM Sunday Mass. For many years this position was
handled well by Mary Bonney, a dear parishioner who passed
away last year. We are seeking a dedicated individual to continue
the wonderful job that Mary did for so many years. Responsibilities involved for this ministry are; arrive 15 minutes prior to the
start of Mass, call upon the ushers and additional parishioners to
assist with the offertory collection and assist them in that capacity. Additionally we would ask that the coordinator assist us in
recruiting additional ushers and greeters for that Mass to insure
that the offertory collections are taken courteously and efficiently
throughout the year. For additional information please contact
Bernadette Scalese at 781-893-8461 or e-mail us at [email protected]
BAPTISM PREPARATION
Baptism preparation class for the month of November will take
place on Thursday, November 20th. The class will take place a
week earlier than usual due to the Thanksgiving holiday. Those
baptizing their child at Sacred Heart Church are required to attend
the baptism class prior to their child’s baptism. We welcome expectant parents and encourage them to attend preparation before
choosing their child’s godparent. Knowing the responsibilities of
a godparent (sponsor) will better prepare you for making this important choice for your child and his/her faith life. To arrange for
the baptism of your child, please contact the Parish Office 781899-0469 Monday-Thursday from 9:00 AM-3:00 PM. Baptism
Classes are held in the Religious Education Center adjacent to the
Parish Office building.

DON’T MISS OUT ON IMPORTANT
PARISH NEWS AND EVENTS!
"Is any man sick among you? Let him bring in the p" riests"of the
church, and let them pray over him."– James 5:14
On the weekend of November 22nd and 23rd the Friars will administer the sacrament of the anointing of the sick. Father Octavio
and Father Dennis will administer the Sacrament following the
4:00PM Mass on Saturday and following the 10:00AM Mass on
Sunday. The Sacrament of the Sick is administered to those who
are gravely ill, to those about to undergo a serious operation and
for those undergoing treatment for the recovery of their health and
for spiritual strength appropriate not only for physical but also for
mental and spiritual sickness. Anointing of the Sick is administered by a priest to any person who has reached the age of reason
and whose health is in jeopardy due to grave illness. This rite is
one way in which the Church continues the healing ministry of
Jesus. The healing offered by this anointing is forgiveness of sins,
hope and inner peace, sometimes physical healing, and an assurance of God's steadfast care, even in death. If you, or a loved one
desire the healing touch of Christ, we encourage you to partake of
the sacrament of the sick. For those who need assistance, please
utilize the handicapped parking and handicapped entrance on
Grove Street.

ADORATION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT
VOLUNTEER(S) NEEDED
We are seeking one or several volunteers for a relatively simple task, to “adopt a pump”. Our religious
education building contains 6 large pumps which
keep our rooms dry. They are relatively easy to maintain but they do require an occasional check to keep a
balanced water level in the battery. We are seeking
one or more volunteer who could take on the task of
overseeing the pumps every other month or so and
refilling the battery with water when necessary. John
Carter, a parish volunteer who manages the systems
in the church will be more than pleased to have a volunteer or two for the RE room pumps and will walk
the volunteer through the process of checking and
filling the battery. This is the perfect volunteer opportunity for busy parishioners or Religious Education
parents who can’t commit much time but would like
to help their church. For additional information contact Bernadette at 781-893-8461.
Eucharistic Adoration had resumed and will take place on the First
Friday of each month from 8:00AM-12:00 Noon. The Third Order
of Mary will also hold Adoration on the Third Sunday of the
month from 2:30PM to 4:00PM
