We are always glad to welcome Sunday visitors to our beautiful, historic church.

Pastor's Note


THE MAGISTERIAL TEACHINGS OF POPE SAINT PAUL VI

As we launch out into this New Year 2019, I would like to dedicate a significant space in our weekly bulletin to highlighting some of the magisterial teachings of Pope Paul VI, who was canonized a Saint of the Catholic Church a few months ago. We will begin with the Credo of the People of God which was proclaimed at the close of the Year of Faith, June 29th, 1968.

Parish Mission Statement

"What then is a parish? It is the smallest section of the one universal flock which has been entrusted to Peter by the Lord. Under the authority of a responsible priest who has received the care of souls from his bishop, the parish is, within the Church of Jesus Christ, the first community of Christian life; it is a community cut to human dimensions, in which the shepherd can know his flock and the flock can know their shepherd. At the heart of this area, we find the parish church with its bell-tower, its baptistery, its confessional, its altar and tabernacle, a symbol of unity and the centre of community life." - Blessed Pope Paul VI, reigned 1964-1978

In addition to being a regular territorial parish of the Archdiocese of Boston it is also a "Mission Parish" since 2007 with a special apostolate for the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal).
