    TRIP TO WASHINGTON, DC June 23-27, 2016 - $609.00

    Looking for 7 more! We have 23 people signed up so far and another 12 have the paperwork. If all

    12 sign up, we’ll be at 35. Our target is 42. If we have less than that, there will be a $25 per person surcharge. Better to get another 7 people than pay an extra $900. If you know someone who is think-ing of coming, please give them a nudge. We have to work our roster out before our February 28th planning session. If we have to cancel the trip, eve-ryone gets their money back (even the deposit). This trip includes 5 days, 4 nights (3 full days in Wash-ington), 4 breakfasts, 3 dinners, tours, etc., with a train option. Our pre-trip meeting will be Sunday February 28, at 2PM in the Boutin Center. It’s a great excursion for the money.

    “It’s Raining….” those words spark pan-ic, where will it leak this time? Where to put the bucket? In addition, the dripping is ruining our pews and floor. To fix this

    problem, we are going to need to replace the roof of St. Paul Church at a cost of approximately $54,000. Through generous donations from a few St. Paul Parishioners, we already have $21,000 earmarked for this project. but we are going to need every one’s help to pay the rest. So, we’re asking you to support this desperately needed project. Could you please purchase at least one of 420 squares at $50 each? Once the chart is full, we’ll have another $21,000 towards the new roof. If we all pitch in, we can make it happen!.

    We have approximately 82 squares ‘adopted’. We are on our way, only 338 to go! We will keep you posted! Please see the information below.

    Please do what you can.

    Collection on February 10, Ash Wednesday The Diocesan collection for Ash Wednes-day is for Aid to Churches in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as churches in

    Africa. When communism fell in the 1990’s, the Catholic Church was allowed to start

    back, but it had nothing to work with (churches, cler-gy, institutions, etc.) This collection helps these new

    Catholic communities build churches, train semi-narians, and provide pastoral care and catechesis.

    A portion of this collection supports the Pastoral Solidarity Fund for the Church in Africa. Your con-

    tinued generosity is appreciated.

    ST. GABRIEL’S PRAYER LINE If you’d like to call in your prayer requests, this month’s contact is Mary Lacroix at 286-7867. You can also write in your request in the book at either church.

    Prayers Requested: Ruth Gyure

    THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK Vote like Jesus would. Every leap year it’s the same: a horde of politicians run up and down our State looking for votes. By the time we get to vote, they have bad-mouthed each other to the point that we don’t know which one is “the lesser of the evils”. We sometimes go into the polling booth holding our nose. It’s not easy to figure out which one is honest, competent or reflects our views and values. We are tempted to just forget to vote. According to today’s Scriptures, that is not an option. There is a reason God made us Christian and it is not to remain silent and passive. We’ve been recruited just as surely as the prophet Isaiah and the apostles to do the Lord’s bidding. If Jesus were voting this Tuesday, who would He choose? Definitely someone who shares His values! And what are His values: the first is hu-man life: He taught us that life is a precious gift from

    God: we should cherish it from our first whimper to our last breath. Someone who can’t see this would be automatically disqualified. All other values and vir-tues flow from it. He’d want a candidate who also re-spects God’s creation and wants to leave this world better than he found it. He’d certainly want someone who truly cares about the plight of the poor, the sick and the refugee (just like He did). Of course, it would be easier for Jesus: he can read hearts. He can tell when a person is saying things just to get elected and when they truly believe what they are saying. We have two days to do our homework. Two days to find out who truly shares our values, who will protect and promote our way of life and who would be most likely to win the Lord’s stamp of approval.

    Pope Francis’ Prayer Intentions for Febru-ary: Interreligious Dialogue. Care for Crea-tion. That we may take good care of crea-tion—a gift freely given—cultivating and pro-tecting it for future generations.

  • Council #12147 will meet Tuesday, February 9 at 7PM in Franklin

    Statement of Contribution If would like to receive a statement for your contribu-tions made during 2015, you will need to contact Claire in the office at 934-5013. Statements will not be mailed out unless they are requested.

    Contribution Envelopes If you are not currently using envelopes and would like to, please contact the Parish Office at 934-5013.

    Beginning this week: Our Faith Enrichment Pro-gram for Lent 2016 is a Bible Study: Gospel of Luke. This is a six week program for adults and begins Thurs-day, the 11th. See the insert in bulletin for additional information. Two sessions are available. This is a great activity for Lent. Come join us for the fellowship. Re-member that you will get out of Easter what you put into lent!

    Lent Starts Wednesday February 10! Ash Wednesday Masses (on February 10th) are at

    8 AM in Franklin and 7 PM in Tilton. Ash Wednesday is a day of Fast & Abstinence and

    every Friday during Lent is a day of Abstinence. See the in-sert for additional guidance and information.

    Twin Rivers Interfaith Food Pantry Three of the (key) charter members are retiring and they are in desperate need for volunteers to replace them. They will be without a manager and a logistics manag-

    er—the backbone of the day-to-day operations. If this is something you could do please contact Heather Makechnie at: (603) 738-4002; [email protected]; or by mail to 158 Boston Hill Road, Andover, NH 03216. This is an opportunity to serve the Lord in one of the most basic ways possible. Peek behind the doors of homes in our community and you will find a shocking level of food insecurity (over 369 households in December). Do not be fooled by the obe-sity we see. Junk food is cheap, and many a child is going to bed with nothing more than a stale Twinkie to fill the empty hole. Please consider being a part of the solution.

    Pilgrimage to Medjugorje Thirty-five years ago Our Lady appeared to 6 young people and is still appearing and delivering messages to the World. Please consider

    joining a pilgrimage retreat October 25 to November 4, 2016. Deacon Geoff Ashman, St. Matthew Parish in Windham, NH, will be the Spiritual Director. For more information please contact Doreen Duquette at (603)-216-4186 or at [email protected]
