Holy Hour for the legal protection of unborn children: Friday, January 28th, at 7PM in the lower chapel

This year marks the 49th anniversary since Roe v. Wade. Since then, over 60 million US children have lost their lives to abortion. We pray that this year may mark the overturning of this fatal decision. 

Watch NBC’s coverage of the Supreme Court decision on January 22nd, 1973, which includes the response of the Catholic Church in America.

While repairing kneelers in the upper church, a parishioner discovered the following words written on the wood of the kneeler (see image in the Christmas photo album below):

“July [?] 1889
This is my last day in Hopkinton thank God 
Chas Mcginnis [?] Lowell Mass” 

This confirms the Milford Daily News:

July 17, 1889: “The work at St. John’s church is progressing rapidly. The seats are all down, the altar raised, the gas fixtures up, and it will soon present an appearance without an equal in the state.”

July 19, 1889: “The carpenters are through for the present on St. John’s church and the painters and finishers are now at work.”

Winter Weather Notice: Please note that if Hopkinton schools are canceled or delayed due to the weather, the parking lot will not be plowed, and there will be no morning weekday Mass.
