Saint Agnes Family Playgroup
The Saint Agnes Family group holds weekly Tuesday playgroups outdoors at nearby parks. We start at 10:30 am (but sometimes moms run late). You are welcome to join us! You can find the spring playgroup schedule here, or by clicking the link at the upper left of the blog home page.

This Tuesday, May 31st, our group is scheduled to meet at Dugger Park  (2 Mystic River Rd., Medford) at 10:30 am.  This fenced park has a fun blacktop area (the sprinkler may be working...) as well as shade and a beautiful view of the Mystic River.  Bring a picnic lunch and come to join us!

Please note that Marianne Hudelson will not be at playgroup this week, due to family travels.  A new leader is needed for playgroup in the future.  If you are able to help with this ministry to parish families, please email Marianne (SaintAgnesFamilies@gmail.com).  Just come out, enjoy the sunshine, and any friends who come to play!

**NOTE THAT our outdoor play schedule is highly dependent on good weather. If the weather seems questionable, please check your email or the blog page before you leave for playgroup. In case of rain or weather below 32 degrees, playgroup will be cancelled for the day. Thanks!**

First Friday Adoration

This Friday, June 3rd, is the first Friday of the month. On Thursday, June 2nd from 4:00-5:00 pm, there will be the opportunity for confession in the lower church. On Friday, Saint Agnes will be offering all-day Adoration, concluding with Benediction and Mass at 5:00/5:30pm, in the lower church. Also at noon there will be a Holy Hour to pray for priests and victims of clergy sexual abuse. Adoration is a wonderful opportunity to spend some quiet time with the Lord and gain some focus in our lives - especially with all the busy distractions of daily life. For more background on the long tradition of keeping a First Friday devotion, look here or here.

Saturday Morning Prayer at Planned Parenthood
Saint Agnes Parish is continuing its hour of prayer in front of Planned Parenthood on Saturday mornings from 7:00-8:00 am.  If you would like to carpool, meet at 6:30 am in the Saint Agnes School parking lot.  We return to Arlington by 8:30 a.m.  If you have questions, please e-mail Eileen Cahill (SAParishforLife@gmail.com).  We have been told by the devoted sidewalk counselors how much they appreciate having us there praying when they arrive.  They need help and support.  Please join this effort.  Once you go and pray with others, you gain more confidence and it gets easier.  Join us; prayer is the faithful's most powerful tool!
