A Note from Our Reopening Team
 
While we are excited to welcome you back, it is important to note that our concerns about Covid-19 have not diminished.
We encourage those who are high risk or cautious to remain at home. Likewise, if you are ill or experiencing any symptoms of illness, you must stay home. Please note that all of our activities and planning has been and will continue to be informed by the CDC, Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, and Dept. of Public Health.

At this current time, the following guidelines for other parish activities/programs are as follows:

  • The celebrations of Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals are allowed; however, there are restrictions and attendance limits.
  • Faith Formation classes for students in ALL grades Pre-K thru 5, The Edge (Grade 6-8), R.O.C (Gr. 9&10), and Adult RCIA have moved to a virtual platform for the 2020-21 school year and are underway. (If you did not register and wish to get more information about joining our programs please reach out to Bernadette at 781.893.8461.)
