With Covid-19 case counts rising in Massachusetts amid the spread of the delta variant, we would like to recommend to all parishioners, both vaccinated and unvaccinated, to wear masks while at Mass. Also, due to the new Archdiocese protocols there will be designated areas in the Church (upper & lower) where Masks are required. Anyone not wearing a Mask may not sit in that area.

Special Collection October 18th-19th
This weekend (October 18th-19th), you will have the opportunity to support our priests through the special September collection benefitting the Clergy Health and Trust (CHRT). CHRT offers programs for the health and wellness of our priests in good standing. The special collection is a primary source of funding for these programs. To give now, go to clergytrust.org.
Every gift makes a difference and is a symbol of gratitude for all our priests who don’t just observe need in our communities; they seek it out so that they can respond.

Scam Alert Warning
Fr. Mario's name is being used in a scam to try and extract gift cards from parishioners. We have had a few calls today with parishioners having received a text purportedly from Fr. Mario asking them to purchase $300 gift cards and to scratch of the security number and forward a picture of the gift card and security number.
DO NOT to respond to the text. It is not from Fr. Mario and is an effort to scam them. Fr. Mario would never ask parishioners to forward a picture of a gift card to him. These did not come from Fr. Mario, please do not respond to these requests.
Any requests will be sent via the bulletin, the web site, or announced at Mass.
If you wish to donate securely, please use the Donate button at the top of this page.
