Aug 2 Sat 8am 1st Saturday Mass with Fr. Roy in the Problem Pregnancy Chapel
Aug 2 Sat noon 1st Saturday Mass with Fr. Gaby Hoyak at Our Lady of Mercy Maronite Church, June St. Worc, 11am confession and Rosary, 1st Sat. meditation and Divine Mercy Chaplet before Mass.

Dale O’Leary, author of “One Man, One Woman, A Catholic’s Guide to Defending Marriage”, (available at Shower of Roses in W.Boylston), has written a well-researched, thorough and compassionate defense of our Church’s teaching that marriage is a life-long union between one man and one woman. I continue quoting from this work to assist our outreach to our brothers and sisters who have Same-Sex Attraction, SSA.
“Among female couples, the wife/pseudo-husband scenario isn’t as uncommon…For a high profile example, when media personality Rosie O’Donnell ‘came out’ as a lesbian, for a time she put away feminine clothing and hairstyles, dressed in clearly masculine clothing, and talked about her ‘wife.’ Her partner, Kelli, the biological mother of some of their children (some are adopted), is obviously feminine. We can see how the lack of complementary plays out in two-woman families in comments made by O’Donnell on her talk show, The View. The panel was discussing breastfeeding, and Rosie announced that Kelli had breastfed their baby conceived through artificial insemination – but for only one month, because Rosie demanded Kelli stop. Rosie explained that breastfeeding allowed Kelli to develop an intimacy with the baby that Rosie couldn’t be part of, and the other women on the show were clearly shocked that Rosie saw nothing wrong with allowing her jealousy to deny the baby the positive benefits of breastfeeding.”
“It isn’t surprising that Rosie and other pseudo-husbands would have maternal feelings, although they might want to adopt the male role in the relationship, they’re unable wholly to sacrifice their natural desire to mother. Being a mother is simply more natural to a woman than being a father.” P.156
