PUBLIC ROSARY TO BE RECITED BEFORE EVERY EXTRAORDINARY FORM MASS AT ST. JOHN THE EVANGELIST!

Dear Friends in Christ:

We invite you to please join us in reciting the Most Holy Rosary before every Extraordinary Form Mass at St. John the Evangelist Parish in Agawam, MA.

We will pray together at 5:30 p.m. every Saturday, just before the 6 p.m. Mass in the Extraordinary Form. We will be praying for our Holy Father Pope Francis, our Bishop Mitchell T. Rozanski, our Pastor Father Brian McGrath, our Parish, and for the intentions of all there gathered.

We invite those of you who attend the 6 p.m. Extraordinary Form Mass to please join us a bit early. Even if you do not wish to stay for Mass, we invite all parishioners and friends of St. John the Evangelist to join us for this most sublime devotion. It would be fantastic to cultivate a sense of public, communal prayer in our Parish!

May God bless you in this season of Lent!

WELCOME TO THE HOME FOR THE TRADITIONAL
LATIN MASS IN THE SPRINGFIELD DIOCESE!
 
Commencing Saturday, October 31, St. John the Evangelist Parish in Agawam, MA renewed its weekly celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass (or "TLM") according to the 1962 Missal of St. John XXIII!
 
Holy Mass is offered every Saturday at 6 p.m., and is celebrated as a Sunday vigil Mass.
 
Attendees of the TLM at St. John the Evangelist offer our sincerest gratitude to Father Brian McGrath and His Excellency, Bishop Mitchell T. Rozanski, for generously offering us a home for the TLM in the Springfield Diocese. Please pray for our Bishop and our Pastor!

The TLM at St. John's is offered by both Father Chris Fedoryshyn, a Priest of St. Mary's Parish in Westfield, MA, and Father Ryan Sliwa, a Priest of Holy Cross Parish in Springfield, MA. Attendees of the TLM would also like to thank Father Chris and Father Ryan for generously volunteering to offer the TLM at our parish. Please mention each of these wonderful priests in your weekly prayers!
