HINGHAM, 3 June 2019 – Croatians in the Boston area consider themselves lucky to have Fra Siniša Ubiparipović as a priest in the Resurrection Church in Hingham, Mass. Fra Siniša, serving the US Catholic Church, makes time to occasionally organize a Holly Mass in Croatian language in his church. This time he also scheduled a time for confessions in Croatian.
A group of families, young adults and children attended the mass which was followed by a homemade meal grilled in the park, which of course included “kolači” baked by volunteers.
“It is always a profound feeling to participate in the Holly Mass in a Croatian Language, and we are greatfull that Fra Sinisa makes that possible to our small community,” said Marijana Sesar-Petrovic, one of the volunteers organizing the gathering.
Under the umbrella of the New England Friends of Croatia, www.friendsofcroatia.org, the community collected donations to be sent to the Church of St. Joseph in Zenica, Bosnia and Herzegovina, for the purpose of helping poverty-stricken senior citizens.
