We offer our prayers and condolences to the family and friends of our faithful departed. May her soul rest in the peace of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Beginning February 2nd, the  Monday morning Mass will be held at St. Benedict’s at 9:00 a.m. and the Friday Mass will be held at St. Martin of Tours at 8:30 a.m. 

This switch will give Fr. Bruce a chance to meet Monday mornings with St. Benedict’s staff (who don't work on Friday) and parishioners. On Fridays, Father visits the hospital, so being in Millinocket for Mass will make Fridays smoother and give him more time for parishioners there.
