Isn't Life Grand!

1000 Club of the Blue Hills Collaborative


It’s hard to believe that another year has passed and we are embarking on our fourth season of the “Isn’t Life Grand!” Club.  I am thrilled to tell you that, as of this writing, we have given out over $75,000 in prizes!  Think about it.  Over $75,000 has been paid out to the people who support our parishes.  That is phenomenal!  And, it gets even better.  To date, the BHCC has realized a net profit of over $75,000, which has been divided equally among our three parishes.  That means that $25,000 has been paid to Most Precious Blood, St. Anne and St. Pius X. This money is crucial in helping to sustain each of our parishes.  It is your continued enthusiasm and support that has made our 1000 Club so successful.

Many of you are getting this letter because you were enrolled last season.  We love you and we thank you! And, some of you may be getting this letter because you were enrolled in the first or second season but not last season.  We love you, too, and we miss you!  Once again, we are asking you to consider enrolling yourself (and maybe your loved ones –they’d be thrilled, I guarantee it) in our “Isn’t Life Grand!” Club.

As it has been in prior years, our hope this season is to reach 1000 members. We have been close all three years but we have yet to reach our goal. Think about this, during our third season, we watched our beloved Red Sox and Patriots win their respective world championships. Why not try to continue that winning streak by trying your luck in the “Isn’t Life Grand!” Club?  I guarantee you won’t be sorry you did. 

Enclosed is an enrollment form for next season, which can also be downloaded from our website at   If you choose to join, please fill out the form and return it with a $60 check per membership, made payable to Most Precious Blood. There is no limit to the number of memberships you can purchase. The rules are as follows:

  • The season runs from July – June.  On the first Saturday of every month, after the 4:00 Mass at St. Pius X, we will draw nine winning tickets amounting to $2100 in prizes (1-$1000, 1- $300, 1-$200 and 6-$100 winners).
  • Proceeds from the club will be divided equally among our three parishes.
  • Memberships are sold only as ‘season tickets’, not on a month-to-month basis.
  • Memberships will be established using names only–there are no numbers assigned.
  • Anyone joining now must purchase a $60 season ticket ($5 per month) and your name will automatically be enrolled in the 12 monthly drawings.
  • Tickets can be sold at a prorated cost based on the number of months left in the current season.  For example, if you purchase a ticket in September then the cost will be $50 and enrollment will be for the remaining ten months (Sept - June).  
  • A single membership can win multiple times on the same day.
  • Winners will receive a check for their winnings soon after each drawing is held.
  • Winners’ names will be posted on our website and in the bulletin.
  • Enrollment confirmation letters will be mailed out in early July.

Enjoy Life!
Fr. Coyne
