We were honored to have Father Michele Benetti from Bishop Fenwick present Mass to us during our Novena yesterday at Sista Felicia’s home.  It was a beautiful morning and Father B, being from Northern Italy had a special request to sing his favorite song Dell Aurora  which happens to be one of our favorites as well!

Heidi — 

Our regional chapters help us stay connected with each municipality across the state. One of our newest chapters, MassBike North Shore, is focused on connecting local communities to improve the cycling experience for all through advocacy and education. In order to make this happen the goals of the group are:

  • To set up regional communication channels to state and local governments to advocate for cycling
  • To create a resource group that will be available to respond to circumstances in a manner that is both proactive (public hearings, meetings, education, events, etc.) and responsive (crashes, road repairs, policy issues, etc.)
  • To foster and grow events that identify connections and infrastructure around the region as well as to celebrate the victories as they come
  • To create a forum for local groups to network with other groups to develop successful advocacy strategies

Please join us at Atomic Cafe in Beverly, MA on Sunday 3/18 at 3 PM for updates and information from MassBike North Shore (MBNS)!

We are looking for anyone who is interested in being involved in education, advocacy and community support in every community on the North Shore. The advisory board for the MBNS will give a brief presentation and then there will be time for open forum discussion as well as networking and socializing. Please join us for an afternoon of community, advocacy and cycling talk!

The performance features the outstanding Cambridge-based Spectrum Singers, distinguished soloists, and a large orchestral ensemble.

Spectrum Singers Music Director, John Ehrlich, describes the two monumental works. “Haydn’s Mass in Time of War bristles with abundant energy and amazing choral and orchestral effects,” he notes. “The trumpets and tympani are boldly featured, painting the sounds of war that were occurring nearby as Haydn composed the music in 1796. Schubert, whose work bridged the Classical and Romantic periods, is renowned for his treatment of melody and harmony. His Magnificat in C, written when…
