Emerging Collaborative

Thursday, June 13, 2019
Dear Parishioners My first few weeks here serving as Administrator both at St. Mary Parish in Hull and St. Anthony Parish in Cohasset has been very welcoming. Not really having any familiarity with either parish in the past a new opportunity for serving the Church came through a simple phone call back in May. I am always ( so far ) happy to say yes ...Read more

The Feast of Pentecost (and Thank You)

Sunday, June 09, 2019
Dear Parishioners Today we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost, called by some the birthday of the Church. Last Thursday we celebrated the day when Christ ascended into heaven, leaving his small band of followers to carry out the work he had commissioned them to do. But before he left his followers, Jesus assured them that he was not simply leaving them on their own. Ra ...Read more

"that all may be one"

Sunday, June 02, 2019
Dear Parishioners These must have been interesting days in the lives of the early disciples of the Lord. They had barely recovered from the shock of the passion, crucifixion and death of Jesus when he appeared to the women at the tomb and to the disciples on the road to Emmaus. For forty days he had been with them, and suddenly, in fulfillment of his word ...Read more

Ascension Thursday

Friday, May 24, 2019
Dear Parishioners As we hasten toward the end of Easter time (and the end of my time as well) the gospel for this Sixth Sunday of Easter, like last week, contains words spoken by Jesus during his last supper before his passion. The words this Sunday may well be among the richest and most weighty he spoke that evening. The Lord seems to skip from one topic to an ...Read more

All Will Know You Are My Disciples If You Love One Another

Sunday, May 19, 2019
Dear Parishioners These days following the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb must have been challenging, yet curious, days for the apostles and the followers of Jesus. For forty days he would be with them until he ascends into heaven, and during this time we discover that during this time Jesus’ resurrection has inaugurated a new era in human history. John&rs ...Read more

First Communion

Sunday, May 12, 2019
Dear Parishioners Yesterday our parish celebrated one of the most spiritually rewarding events which every parish observes at this time of the year, the reception of First Communion by our second grade children. It has been the custom in our parish to celebrate the reception of the Eucharist for the first time by our children on the Sunday before Mother’s Day. This  ...Read more

Readings for the Octave of Easter

Saturday, May 04, 2019
Dear Parishioners, Because Easter is such a significant feast, we observe an Octave following the feast eight days of special liturgy of the Resurrection. However, once the Octave is over, we enter into the Easter Season. The white vestments are worn, Easter week-day liturgies are celebrated until the Feast of Pentecost, after which we will resume Ordinary Time. During th ...Read more

Divine Mercy Sunday

Sunday, April 28, 2019
Dear Parishioners, Sister Mary Faustina Kowalska was born August 25, 1905 in Gogowiec, Poland of a poor and religious family of peasants, the third of ten children. She was baptized with the name Helena and from a tender age she stood out because of her love of prayer, work, obedience and her sensitivity to the poor. At the age of sixteen she left home and went to wo ...Read more

Easter and Our Faith in the Resurrection

Sunday, April 21, 2019
Dear Parishioners You seek Jesus of Nazareth who was crucified. He is risen, he is not here, behold the place where they laid him. As we celebrate this Easter Sunday, we relive the central act of our faith. With our mind’s eye we can picture the impact of the angel’s voice: He is not here, for he has risen as He said…" The Acts of the Apo ...Read more

Holy Week and The Collaborative's New Pastor Announced

Sunday, April 14, 2019
Dear Parishioners In Rome, at the end of a conclave when a new pope has been elected, the Cardinal Carmelengo appears on the balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square and announces to the assembled crowd and the entire world habemus papem, "we have a pope." The call came here last Thursday with the news "habemus pastor", we have a pastor, which news was to be held ...Read more
