Welcome to St. Dorothy and St. Thomas Churches!

Join us in the celebration of Word and Sacrament as we continue to grow in our Catholic faith and to flourish as a community. We welcome all to join us as we seek to follow Christ, come alive in His Spirit, and share His love with one another.

Recently, Catholic Charities held its yearly fundraiser to fund the services provided to countless people across the Archdiocese. How much do you know about Catholic Charities? Find out more by clicking the link below.


Fifteen years ago, on May 22, 2004 I was ordained a priest and I had the privilege to celebrate my First English Mass at Saint Thomas Parish in Wilmington on May 23.  Later I celebrated my First Mass in Spanish at the Cathedral of the Our Lady of the Light in Leon, with my Mother and my family. 

I am very thankful especially to Fr. Earley, Fr. Tully and the wonderful community of the Parish of the Transfiguration for their support during these 15 years and especially now that I am assigned to the parish, thanks to Fr. Earley’s connections…  I consider myself very fortunate being here in Wilmington.

As you read this note, I will be at home with my family celebrating 15 years serving the Church in America, praying for you and your intentions, please pray for me.

Regards from Holy Land = Mexico.

Fr. Agustin


After the last Mass on Sunday, Fr. Agustin is heading home to Mexico to visit his family.  He will return on Thursday, June 6, 2019.  I hope he gets warm, sunny weather and not all this rain like here.  While he is away, there will be communion services on Thursday and Friday.  The only exception is Ascension Thursday, May 30, 2019.  I will do a morning Mass.  In most of the country, they have moved the feast of the Ascension to Sunday but not here in Boston.  Maybe the next Archbishop of Boston will move it.  There will be no priest around on Thursday or Friday.

Tom Griffin is starting a book club.  There are more details about it elsewhere in the bulletin.  The book, “The Gift of Years, Growing Old Gracefully” is an excellent book.  I read it twice.  I would encourage  you to join or at least read the book.

Here is an update for the Catholic Appeal. Our goal for the Parish of the Transfiguration is $56,000.00. Between those who responded to the Cardinal’s letter or mailed in a check or gave online or on Commitment Sunday, we have $56,783.00 in gifts and pledges. If all the pledges are paid off, we will have met our assessment. Again, thanks to all who made a gift or pledge to the 2019 Catholic Appeal. If you would like to make a pledge to the Catholic Appeal, it is not too late.

Some people have asked me how the Holy Land Pilgrimage is coming along. It is going well. We had two more people signed up. The travel company told me that they have 42 slots on the plane. If more than 42 people sign up, they will try to see if they can get more seats on the plane. The travel company went on to say not to turn anyone away because over the course of time some people cancel because of some issue within family or work. If you are interested in going, let me know.

Well, that is it for now. Until next time take care.

Fr. Earley
