Mission Statement


BOTTLE DRIVE COMING!  What are you planning to do with all the bottles and cans you will have accumulated from First Communion, Confirmation. Graduation, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Memorial Day celebrations?  Think about bringing them to Fr. Mahoney Hall at the rear of the church on Saturday, June 25th between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.  All proceeds will support the efforts of the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation, which provides medical and educational services in Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.  You can help with this effort in a number of ways—donate your bottles and cans; redeem your bottles and cans and donate the money obtained; volunteer for an hour of your time on June 25th to sort bottles or bring them to the Redemption Center; spread the word about the date and time of the bottle drive.  If interested in helping, contact Bob or Kathy Fanning at 781-826-9233 or at rgfanning@verizon.net.

Parish Council Elections will be held July 25 & 26.  There are posters at each entrance of the church with a picture and a short biography of each person running for the Parish Council.  Please be sure to take a look. 


HEALING SERVICE:  Deacon Jack Sullivan will be conducting a Healing Service here on Friday, July 1 @ 5:15 p.m. and every first Friday thereafter with his relic of Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman.  In July, 2009, Pope Benedict XVI announced that Jack’s sudden and remarkable healing from a crippling spinal injury, after prayer for Newman’s intercession, was a miracle, leading to Newman’s beatification in September, 2010.  Any questions, call Deacon Jack at 781-563-2107.


FALL RELIGIOUS ED. TEACHERS NEEDED:  We are in need of parent volunteers to teach afternoons in our Grades 2 – 6 classes.  Lesson plans and teaching materials will be provided and full support will be available.  Classes meet once a week: Monday - Thursday from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. in our parish hall.  Class size is limited to 8 students or less.  Parents who teach in our program will have the tuition waived for all students in their family regardless of grade level.  For more information,  call the  Office @ 781-826-8042.
