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 flourish as a community. We welcome all to join us as we seek to follow Christ, to come alive in His Spirit, and to share His love with one another.

A NOTE FROM THE PASTOR

I will be having a farewell celebration on the weekend of June 12 & 13. After the 4:00 PM Mass at St. Dorothy’s, there will be a reception. We will have light refreshments and beverages. It is too close to supper time to go heavy. Nevertheless, it will give me an opportunity to say goodbye. After the noon Mass, there will be a reception in Villanova Hall. There will be a light lunch served following all covid protocols. Oddly enough, coffee cannot be served at either event. There will be water and soft drinks available.

If they have not appointed a new pastor or administrator by that time, I will have to come back during the week to do some administrative work.

I am glad that some of the covid restrictions are easing up. Every step we take getting back to “normal” feels great. The diocese is now allowing singing. You still must wear a mask while singing. We cannot put the hymnals back yet. We have asked the music ministry to play songs that are familiar to people since they will not have the words in front of them. We are also going to bring the collection baskets back. We need to line up our ushers and go over some safety protocols with them before collecting begins. As I said, it is nice to see some things coming back.

The annual Catholic Appeal is underway. Letters from Cardinal Sean have been mailed out. We have put the Catholic Appeal video on our website and on our Facebook page. Believe it or not, I think this year’s video is the best yet. It gives some relatable examples of how central ministries have helped the parishes especially during the pandemic. In past years, I thought that the videos they sent out were more of a hindrance than a help to garner support for the appeal. Our assessment for 2021 is $56,370.65.

You can either drop the appeal envelope into the offertory basket or mail it in yourself. Thank you. Here are the results thus far:

Goal                                         Amount pledged                     % of assessment      Shortfall

$56,370.65                                $39,960                                       71%                       $16,410.65

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

Fr. Earley

REMEMBER: The Cardinal has issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass during this time to all Catholics of the Archdiocese of Boston.
