St. Michael Parish to kick off speaker series
June 15 @ 7:00 pm
HUDSON – Artie Boyle is kicking off a new speaker series at St. Michael Parish in Hudson with a talk about his healing experiences in Medugorje.
He will be speaking to the community on Wednesday June 15 at 7 p.m.
The public is welcome.
Boyle has been married to his high school sweetheart, Judy, for 47 years. They have 13 wonderful children and 24 grandchildren. He’s been a successful businessman, amateur hockey player and coach. Perhaps most telling of his character, though, is that he is a man of deep faith – a practicing, devout Catholic.
Artie is a product of Catholic Elementary education in Dorchester at ST. Peter’s. He has been employed by the Archdiocese of Boston for the past four years working with the Catholic Appeal and with the Campaign for Catholic Schools under the direction of Jack Connors and Kathleen Driscoll. Artie owned and operated a successful transportation business for thirty years before joining the Archdiocese. Artie sold his business with the hopes of getting into something that would enable him to help spread the faith.
In the year 1999 Artie was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma (Kidney Cancer) that spread to his lungs. The doctors gave him less than 5% chance for survival. At the urging of two dear friends he went to Medjugorje, Bosnia-Hercegovina, an apparition site of the Blessed Virgin Mary that began in 1981. It was in Medjugorje that Artie believes he was healed by Jesus through the intercession of Mary and by way of the sacrament of Reconciliation and the power of Forgiveness.
