Shakespeare on the Common & Parish Picnic!

Shakespeare on the Common has become a Saint Cecilia tradition. If you have never joined us for this fun evening under the stars, you should consider doing so this year. The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company is presenting the romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. We are going this Tuesday, July 25. The play begins at 8:00 on the Boston Common near the Parkman Bandstand. As we’ve done in the past, we will be reserving space (thank you, Jenny Jones!) and will have a potluck picnic beforehand at 6:30. For more information please contact Jenny Jones at [email protected] or 617-283-7927. The play is free, though donations to the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company are appreciated and can be made via www.commshakes.org.


Join us from 5:00 — 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 5 when we volunteer in the kitchens of Community Servings. We are looking for volunteers to assist in preparing and packaging nutritious meals for those who are home-bound with life-threatening illnesses throughout Eastern Massachusetts. No culinary skills are required, but volunteers need to be at least thirteen years of age. Please feel free to join us even if you can’t be there until a bit later than 5:00 p. m. Community Servings is conveniently located next to the Stony Brook T Station in Jamaica Plain. To volunteer or for more information, please contact Mark Lippolt at: [email protected] com. 7/1/17


Do you have an interest in joining a group of parishioners on Monday nights who gather in the Parish Pastoral Center to offer support and to create community with men who were, at one time, in prison? If so, please consider joining our Prison & After Ministry. The program is taking a break for the summer to refresh, and will return in the fall, ready to welcome new members. Please call the Parish Office at 617-536-4548 if you would like to learn more about this meaningful and rewarding ministry.
