Kujenga Summer Retreat Showcase

In gratitude and appreciation to the parents who send their children to the 2014 Kujenga Summer Retreat and to parishioners who contributed with their financial support and prayers to the annual retreat, St. Angela’s hosted last weekend her first Kujenga-Viongozi Retreat Showcase on Saturday 6 September to Sunday 7 September 2014 at St. Angela’s church in Mattapan.

The annual Kujenga Catholic Leadership Youth Retreat is organized and sponsored collaboratively with the Archdiocese of Hartford/Connecticut, the Archdiocese of Boston/Massachusetts, the Diocese of Providence/Road Island and the Diocese of Fall River/Massachusetts. Last month, Mrs. Josette...

Seven-Day Jericho Prayers

Seven-Day Jericho Prayers

The purpose of the Seven-Day Jericho Prayers is to pray for or against something and ask God to intercede, protect, or change something.   It is a test of faith, trust in God to move, and a test of obedience. These prayers – which may also take the form of marches around a city, church building, or house, etc … -  are patterned after the march on Jericho by Joshua as instructed by the Lord. We gladly thank Charismatic Prayer Group ‘Divine Mercy‘  (Divine Miséricorde) who brings us another Seven-Day Jericho Prayers this year again. May God bless you each individually and your church ministry as He blesses each parishioner as well as each church visitor during #Jericho week. We also warmly welcome and gladly happy to receive the priests...

Values, Virtues, and Your Daughter’s Date

Originally posted on 21 August 2012 – updated. << I’ve been a parent for a long time now, and I have heard many, many parents — in real life, in print, and on television — talk about their ultimate hopes for their children:  “I just want my child to be happy.” “I want my child to be successful.” “I want my child to have a good education, a good job and good relationships.” I never hear:  “I want my child to be virtuous.” Virtuous? Who talks about virtue anymore? Well, outside of the Church, not many. (Okay, let’s be honest, even most Catholics today don’t talk about virtue.) In general, talk of being virtuous has been replaced by talk of having  “values” — even though virtues and values are not synonymous. Here’s...

-  By Jessica Valera – a CFP Correspondent WORCESTER – Assumption College played host to a special gathering of young adults last Saturday night. Pure in Heart Worcester, a branch of the international Catholic organization centered around Blessed Pope John Paul II’s teachings of Theology of the Body, had its Summer Kick-Off at the college’s Campus Ministry Center, in order to raise awareness of its presence in the diocese. Calling young people ages 18-35 to live the virtue of chastity and to respect the sanctity of human life, Pure in Heart encourages its members to live the teachings of Theology of the Body in their own lives. “Pure in Heart takes Theology of the Body and lives it,” said member Samantha Pegg, 23, of St. Mary Parish in Shrewsbury....
