Project Rachel is a confidential ministry of the Catholic Church that offers hope and healing for women and men suffering from the pain of past abortions. Project Rachel is named after the Old Testament figure Rachel who weeps inconsolably for her children "who are no more" until God came to her, offering hope for her future. (Jeremiah 31:15-17) Among its services are referrals for counseling and sacramental Reconciliation (confession), retreats and on going support. For more information, visit www.projectrachelboston.com or contact Project Rachel at 508.651.3100 or [email protected]. All inquiries are confidential.
DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WHO WOULD BENEFIT FROM A PASTORAL VISIT?
Are you or someone you know homebound due to illness, age, or recuperation from surgery? If someone is unable to attend Sunday Mass for an extended period and would enjoy a periodic pastoral visit at home or a local nursing facility for prayer and to receive Holy Communion, please call Patrice Fitzpatrick at 781-438-0200. If you are acting on behalf of a relative, friend, or neighbor, please respect their privacy and confirm that they would like a pastoral visitor to contact them before referring them to our program. Thank you!

If you have lost a loved one through death and feel the need for support, we offer a monthly drop-in evening where you can meet with others who are also experiencing the effects of grief and loss. Drop-in meetings occur on the second Monday of each month, from 6:00pm - 7:30pm in the Youth/Multi-purpose Room on the basement level of the parish center.
