OLA Social Group trip to St. Joseph's Abbey

Wednesday, October 18

Last year's trip was such a success that we are once again heading to St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer during the height of foliage season.  There will be an opportunity to visit the chapel during the 12:15 prayer service with Gregorian chanting, as well as time for a stop at the gift shop.  We'll have lunch at Salem Cross Inn with your choice of chicken pot pie or baked scrod.  Cost is $57.  

We welcome people from both parishes! Price is $57.  Please call Brenda at 781-598-0533.
