TOPICAL NEWS AND INFORMATION
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY
Please note, that in the event of snow or inclement weather, if the East Providence schools have closed or delayed opening our morning mass will also be canceled. Although our pastor lives here, morning mass may be covered by visiting clergy who could be unable to get here. Since we cannot schedule snow days around their schedule this policy is necessary.
Religious Formation class changes will be announced on local media and our facebook page.
SPONSOR CERTIFICATES (for Baptisms and Confirmation)
Congratulations on having been asked to be a Confirmation Sponsor or Baptismal Godparent. In accepting this responsibility you are to be a witness in the practice of the faith and an advocate for Jesus Christ to the teenager, or you will promise to assist the parents of the child in raising their child in the practice of the faith.
If you are a Confirmed Catholic living in full communion with the Church (including, if married, married in the Catholic Church), if you are a registered and active parishioner of St. Brendan’s, and are an active participant in parish life (you celebrate weekly mass with us every week) then please speak with Father Codega after the Sunday Mass you usually attend for a sponsor certificate. Please do not wait until the week before the ceremony and please do not ask for a sponsor certificate if you do not come to church. Come back to church first!
DEPICTIONS OF THE SAINTS PROJECT
The parish is considering filling the blank canvases around the interior of the church with images of saint, contemporary and historical. Parishioners will have direct say as to which saints we should depict as well as an opportunity to memorialize the work and sponsor the local artist who will create the murals. StBrendan@cox.net
Here are some renderings of what the church may look like when completed
