FRIENDS OF THE CROSS

“If anyone wishes to come after me let him deny himself, pick up his cross daily and follow me.” All are INVITED to attend the Friends of the Cross meetings every second Tuesday of the month in St. Mary’s Hall.

“Friends of the Cross” is a Catholic fellowship which grew out of last year’s Lenten series which focused on St. Louis de Montfort’s timeless treasure entitled “Letter to the Friends of the Cross” written in the early 1700’s to a group of Catholics who called themselves – Friends of the Cross. Much healing happened through this series and we decided to continue on a monthly basis….“By His Wounds we are healed”.Our MISSION is to deepen our faith through the Cross and to know the graces flowing from uniting our sufferings to the sufferings of Jesus on a daily basis. Our Lady of Kibeho asks us to pray “Holy Mary, remind us always of the sufferings of Jesus”.

We abide by the teachings of the Church and the only requirement is that people will read the book and desire to deepen one’s faith on this path. ALL IS CONFIDENTIAL! This ground rule ensures an atmosphere of safety, charity and respect for one another.

A book will be available to you at your first meeting or it can be sent out. If one is unable to attend the group sessions, they are still welcome to join. We will be happy to get the book to you and will share a spiritual thought from our discussions periodically. If you are interested…….just show up! If you would like more information please contact Patricia Boynton at - 413-544-4356 (call or text) or [email protected]

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF LOCATION – FRIENDS OF THE CROSS WILL MEET IN ST. MARY’S HALL FROM NOW ON. NEXT MEETING WILL BE TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11 FROM 6-7:30
