Oblate Associate, Jim Savarese hands out “Welcoming” brochures after Easter Masses at the Shrine of St. Joseph the Worker

Worshipers leaving the Shrine of Saint Joseph the Worker in Lowell, MA, at any of the 4 Easter Masses celebrated there March 31 and April 1, were greeted by an Oblate Associate handing out “welcoming brochures”.

The tri-fold pamphlets were designed by Oblate Associates Ed Oliveri and Jim Savarese, and produced with the help of the Shrine’s Administrative Assistant, Phillip Stella.   They contained information from the group, “Catholics Come Home,” as well as information about the resources and activities of the Shrine, encouraging those who may not come to church regularly to consider “coming home”, and experiencing the joy that comes from living one’s Faith to the full!

The people were delighted to be greeted as they left Mass by the smiling faces of our Oblate Associates, and we were delighted to see them here, and let them know they have a home at Saint Joseph Shrine!
