“I have not the courage to force myself to seek beautiful prayers in books; 
not knowing which to choose, I act as children do who cannot read; 
I say quite simply to the good God what I want to tell Him, and He always understands me.”



Youth Night: God, Rap, and True Love 
All teens are invited to the St. Mark's and St. Ambrose Youth Group 
on Sunday, February 26th at 6:00pm 
for an evening to discuss God's plan of love for us and the great gift of our sexuality. 
For those that came to the Jason Evert talk at St. Mark's last November, 
the theme and vibe of this evening will be very similar. 

The evening will also feature a special musical performance 
by Fr. Patrick Fiorillo on the drums, as he provides the beat for Fr. Anthony Cusack – Boston’s best rapping priest. He is legit! 

So Sunday, February 26, get your homework done early and come to St. Mark's lower church hall. 
YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!! 

This event is open to all teens, grades 8 and up. 
Food will be provided. Hope to see you there! 

Contact Fr. Fiorillo with any questions fr.patrick.fiorillo@gmail.com

Evangelization and Outreach at St. Ann’s and St. Brendan’s 

A few weeks ago inspired by a daily Mass homily, a group of parishioners at St. Brendan’s approached Fr Drea and asked to form an Evangelization Committee. This committee will serve to work on improving overall Mass attendance in the collaborative and provide outreach to the collaborative neighborhoods regarding Catholic life at St. Ann’s and St. Brendan’s. Recently a few of the parishioners have been going around the neighborhoods distributing bulletins and postcards with Mass time information and serving as an invitation to become involved in collaborative life. We applaud the grassroots initiative of these parishioners and invite others to join together to strengthen our wonderful collaborative. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Amy Mulvey at the parish office and your name will be given to the group.



Current Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion 

 Whether you assist with communion at Mass or bring it to the sick/homebound, our parish collaborative will be having a day of recollection for all involved, followed by a formal installation ceremony and blessing. We're also trying to better coordinate our efforts in reaching out to our homebound parishioners. For all those who bring communion to others, please provide Amy Mulvey with your contact information, and the names/ addresses of the homebound person. Please help us to continue building up this important ministry in our parish collaborative! 

We have many homebound parishioners who would be evergrateful to be able to receive Holy Communion on a regular basis! We are also in need of lectors and help distributing communion at our weekend Masses. Please leave your contact information with Amy Mulvey in the main office and Fr. Fiorillo will get in touch with you soon about training and installation. Amy Mulvey, Main Office: 617-436-0310
