St. J’s Collaborative Mass and gathering

9am Mass at Saint John the Evangelist Church in Townsend on Sunday, October 2, 2022

and pancake breakfast after Mass (at 9:45am) in the hall

We hope this will be a tradition going forward, alternating between the churches each year (this year at St. John's, next year at St. Joseph's, etc.). This is a great opportunity for all of us in the Collaborative (whether you attend Mass at St. James' or St. Joseph's or St. John's) to come together to celebrate Mass and to meet each other. Although the other Mass times will remain that day, we would encourage everyone to try to come to the 9:00am Mass in Townsend and to stay for breakfast. Bring your appetites—there will be plenty of food!
