Pastor's Note


JANUARY 18th—25th:
OCTAVE WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY 

Each year between January 18th -25th the Church observes an Octave Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. In the Catholic Sanctoral Calendar the week is buttressed by two important feasts of the Apostles Peter and Paul: January 18th is the (traditional) Feast of St. Peter’s Chair at Rome and January 25th is the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. Thus, the Octave Week of Prayer is symbolically grounded in the authority of the two Princes of the Apostles Peter and Paul who share a Martyrs’ Feast Day on June 29th.

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).
