Mass of Healing and Hope 

Feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary on October 7, 2020  - Mark your calendar!

On behalf of Fr. Paul, Fr. Adrian, and our whole parish staff, we are making a heartfelt appeal and invitation to you and the members of your ministry, parishioners, friends and family alike.  We will be celebrating the Feast Day of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary on Wednesday, October 7th beginning with the Rosary at 5:30 PM, then a Solemn High Mass at 6:00 PM followed by a candle light Eucharistic Procession around the Parish grounds.    

We are calling on all Ministries with their leaders and members, and all parishioners and friends to take part in this wonderful celebration of the patronal feast of Our Lady of the Holy Rosary.  Now, more than ever we need Our Blessed Mother’s Prayers, Intercession, and Protection from all the ills that are happening around the world.  May our Lady of the Holy Rosary protect and safeguard our faith in this generation and in the generations to come!    Please round up all your members to participate!  Bring your banners and placards to identify your ministry!  After the Mass we will solemnly process around the parish grounds with the Blessed Sacrament while singing songs of praise and worship.  We hope to see you all there. “To Jesus Through Mary.”

Thank you for your Generosity

As a precautionary measure, we have placed the Collection Basket at the center aisle of the church during all Weekend Masses.  Please feel free to drop your envelopes and loose donations.  

 

Likewise, may we encourage you to sign up for Online Giving, please find the link below.  For further information about Online Giving please do not hesitate to call the Parish Office.  Thank you!

Shrine dedicated to St. John Paul II and St. Faustina

You may be wondering what is going on at one of the  Confessionals opposite the Confessional Box used by Fr. Adrian.  Construction will begin soon.  We will be dedicating a special  Shrine and altar to St. John Paul II and St. Faustina.  Fr. Adrian was able to secure the first class relic of St. John Paul II from Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz a long-time and influential Secretary and aide of Pope John Paul II. 

 

We trust that before Christmas, the Shrine and altar will be completed.  If you wish to  donate in the completion of this Shrine, please do not hesitate to contact the Parish Office for details.  Thank you so much in advance.

The Rochester Knights of Columbus council 2048 is conducting their semi-annual “Delta Church Drive”  on Sunday October 18, 2020 after all masses at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary and St. Leo Parish.   

 

We are grateful for the opportunity to inform all eligible Catholic men in our parish of the virtues of what it is to be a Knight and our commitment to our faith, our parish, our family values and the charitable works we do.

 

Recognized for our commitment and support, the Rochester Council 2048 was recently  honored with the “Star Council Award”,  our International Organizations top honor for local council. 

 

For those interested in learning more on becoming a Knight, we will be available to speak with you after each mass. 

Ministry of the Month

From September 23 through November 1, you're invited to join thousands around the world for 40 days of prayer and fasting for an end to abortion.  You're also invited to peacefully pray during a 40-day vigil on the public sidewalk outside the Lovering Health Center located at 559 Portsmouth Ave., Greenland, NH; and to also help spread the word about this important community event. 

If you'd like to volunteer to fast and/or pray please sign up online to our campaign at: 40daysforlife.com/greenland OR Email Debbie at: deb40days@yahoo.com OR call or text Vicki at: 978-807-3323.  To pray outside the Lovering Center: After signing up click the "Sign up for Vigil Hours" box and type your desired hour(s) onto the calendar.  Your presence on the sidewalk can be the last sign of hope for the baby and the first sign of mercy for the woman!  We are engaged in a spiritual warfare, a battle not against flesh and blood but against powers and principalities. 

559 Portsmouth Ave., Greenland, NH.
