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

Covid-19 has certainly changed everyone’s life as well as the life of the church. We were shut down by the state from March 13th to the beginning of June. When we reopened, we had limited capacity, social distancing, masks, and sanitation requirements to deal with. It was a lot to deal with. Nevertheless, our faith community continued to function. Between January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020, we did the following:

  • 1.      Funerals 121
  • 2.      Confirmations 137
  • 3.      First Penance 117
  • 4.      First Communion 117
  • 5.      Baptisms 64
  • 6.      Marriages 2 (pre-pandemic; others cancelled.)

Our faith formation program resumed in September. We broadcast our daily and weekend Masses on our website. This note is on the website. Other information went out via email blasts or on our Facebook page. I am glad to say that we tried to keep everything “as normal” as we could. I will be glad when we can get back to “pre-pandemic normal”. Thank you for your support and thanks to the staff for keeping the parish going.

Our church repair campaign is going very well thanks to you. As of Monday, February 8th, we have collected $166,171 from 373 donors. That is fantastic. Thank you. I truly appreciate your generosity.

The annual Catholic Appeal is underway. Letters from Cardinal Sean have been mailed out. The parish kick-off will be the weekend of March 6 & 7. 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 $56,371.00

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.

Please follow the practices of good hygiene such as frequent hand-washing, protecting your coughs and sneezes with tissues disposed of immediately, or coughing into your elbow if tissues are not available, cleaning and disinfecting commonly used surfaces often, avoiding contact with people who are ill, if possible, and following other healthy practices of good diet, sleep and exercise.
