A gathering like no other

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
~ Philippians 4:4

First Sunday of autumn, but you really feel more like summer. It is a beautiful day and we have so many reasons to rejoice in the Lord. All the Emmanuel Community members and friends from the Boston area are gathering in Dracut, 30 miles northwest of Boston, at St Francis church, Father Sean’s parish. But this monthly gathering is like no other. After praising together and sharing a picnic under the sun with the kids, we are welcoming new members.

First, our brand new member: Rebekah Rose Pepin, born on 9/1.
Alleluia, Lord is good.

Secondly Christina (with her husband Chris) and Juliette who are taking the step of Welcome and Discernment in the Emmanuel Community
Alleluia, Lord is good!

Then our members who renew their commitment to the Community.
Alleluia, Lord is good!

We are all full of joy and feel so thankful for the gift of our brothers and sisters. Monthly gatherings are always good to see all our members and share a moment together but this day we enjoy the treasure of brotherhood more than ever.
Alleluia Lord is good!
