Congratulations!Congratulations to Deacon Frank Dello Russo and to Mr. James Mazzarini!

St. Patrick Parish is delighted to announce that Deacon Frank and Mr. Jim Mazzarini will receive the Cheverus Award from Cardinal Sean O’Malley in a ceremony next Sunday, November 26, 2023 at 3:00 pm at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston.

The Cheverus Award, named for Bishop Jean-Louis de Cheverus, the founding Bishop of Boston, is awarded to laypeople, religious, and deacons who have "served a parish community well over an extended period of time in a quiet, unassuming, and perhaps unrecognized fashion.”

Deacon Frank and Jim, each in their own way, tirelessly support the mission of St. Patrick Parish and generously serve the parishioners here. Their commitment, dedication, and selfless service of others shines as a wonderful example to all of us. It makes us proud that they belong to St. Patrick Parish! We congratulate them and take this opportunity to offer a big and well-deserved, “THANK YOU!!!!"
