Parish Merger Update

Cardinal Sean O'Malley has approved our request to merge our parishes and has issued a Decree of Merger, which makes our union effective on August 1, 2020. As a result, our two parishes have come together to form a new entity for canonical, sacramental, financial and legal purposes so that we can be stronger together as a Catholic Community.

Our new Parish has a temporary new name: Saint Joseph – Saint Francis of Assisi Parish. When making financial donations to our new Parish, please make checks payable to: Saint Joseph – Saint Francis of Assisi Parish. Parishioners who use the envelope system will receive their envelopes with the new Parish name in the coming days. In the meantime, please continue to use the envelopes you have.

We are currently conducting a survey to select a permanent name for our new Parish. We expect the survey to conclude by mid-August of 2020. Based on the results of the survey, Father Paul Sullivan, our Pastor, will petition Cardinal Sean O’Malley to assign the new name.

During this transitional time, our on-line giving systems will remain unchanged. In the coming weeks, once the permanent name has been selected, our on-line giving system will also merge and will change. We will reach out to all those who participate in on-line giving to guide you through this change.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our Parish Office by phone at 781-396-0423 or by e-mail at [email protected] if you have any questions or need assistance.

Josephine Bradanese Joseph P. McGonagle

We remember in our prayers, Josephine & Joseph and all our

parishioners who have passed away during this difficult time. Please see the Memorial Wall on our website.

MAY THEY REST IN PEACE

Congratulations to our newly Confirmed!

Ian Luis Angudelo and Joanna Garrity received the Sacrament of Confirmation on July 30, 2020.

Mass Assistants - We are looking for volunteers to join our Mass Hospitality Committee to help as greeters and ushers at all our weekend Masses. We would be so grateful for your participation in making every Mass a welcoming, safe celebration. If you would like to join this committee, please call our Parish Office at 781-396-0423 x 103.

Parish Office - Due to the pandemic, the office is closed to the public. In-person visits are by appointment only. Please call or email the office Monday - Friday, 9 am - 12 noon for assistance or to make an appointment.

CATHOLIC APPEAL - Due to the shutdown of Churches for COVID-19, parishes were unable to launch the 2020 Catholic Appeal this past March with an in-pew presentation. However, as the work of our Church has continued amidst the pandemic, the more than 50 ministries funded by the Catholic Appeal are in need now more than ever. The success of the Appeal is vital in funding these ministries that provide assistance to our parishes, schools, and communities in a variety of ways. Please consider making your gift to the 2020 Catholic Appeal in one of the following ways:

If you receive a letter or email, respond using the pledge card or donation options.

St. Joseph Mass Intentions

St. Francis of Assisi Mass Intentions

Adoration at St. Joseph Church - Wednesdays, Thursdays & Fridays 9am - 8pm (lower church) As our world is in upheaval and uncertainty, we must cling to our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Spending one hour per week in Eucharistic adoration is an excellent way to draw closer to Him. If you are a returning adorer, or have never spent time in Eucharistic adoration before, we hope you will prayerfully consider committing one hour per week to our Lord. In order to open and maintain Adoration, we need a commitment of two adorers per hour to ensure the Blessed Sacrament is never left alone. If you are interested in volunteering for a time slot, please contact Mary Ann Harold at [email protected]. Legion of Mary - Wednesdays 6:30pm-8pm at St. Joseph (lower church meeting room) St. Francis of Assisi Marion Movement of Priests Prayer Group - meets Mondays at 7pm at St. Francis of Assisi (upper church) for Adoration and to pray the Rosary. Weekly Rosary for Peace, Healing & Health - All adults are welcome. Feel free to invite a friend! Every Wednesday Night at 7pm. Great community to learn and grow in the devotion to the rosary! Meeting on zoom: Go to: www.zoom.us - Click on join a meeting - Meeting ID: 898 8639 1043 Password: 253482 For more information, please email [email protected] or call the office at 781-396-0423 x 118
