Our Virtual Book of Remembrance

In the Catholic liturgical calendar, November is entirely devoted to the deceased. The Church prays for those who have joined the Communion of Saints and those Souls in Purgatory. We invite all parishioners to add the names of their decreased loved ones to the physical books located in the churches, or to this virtual Book of Remembrance. These names will be held in prayer throughout the month. Please click the link below to add names to the book.

For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission

Pope Francis has called for a synod in the church. The theme of this upcoming Synod is “For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation and Mission.”  

The synod process, informally known as the “synod on synodality,” opened in Rome on the weekend of Oct. 9-10 and in particular churches on Oct. 17. An opening Mass will take place at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross on Nov. 27 at 4:30 p.m. to mark the synod’s beginning in the Archdiocese of Boston.

“Dear brothers and sisters, let us have a good journey together!  May we be pilgrims in love with the Gospel and open to the surprises of the Holy Spirit. Let us not miss out on the grace-filled opportunities born of encounter, listening and discernment. In the joyful conviction that, even as we seek the Lord, he always comes with his love to meet us first.” -Pope Francis

Donations Needed for Afghani Family

Our POWIR committee is overjoyed to share with you the arrival of the Afghani family we will be supporting in the coming year. Mom, Dad, 2 year old boy and 1 year old baby girl are happily settled into their new home in Boston. Our housing volunteers worked tirelessly preparing a warm and welcoming home for the family thanks to all of your generous donations.

We are still gratefully accepting financial contributions to their resettlement efforts, and any volunteer support you feel prompted to give. From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for making this massive contribution to the health, safety and healing of a family who have experienced unfathomable trauma. Please continue to hold them in your prayers.

We ask you to prayerfully consider assisting this family in their financial resettlement needs via our online donation platform: SJSPPOWIR

Public Indoor Mask Advisory for Wellesley

In light of the recent increase in the COVID Virus Delta variant, which has proven to be significantly more transmissible, we are strongly advising that individuals over the age of 5 wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth when indoors in a public setting, regardless of their vaccination status. Please understand that information and data is changing rapidly, and we are doing our best to respond in a thoughtful and expedient manner. As additional information is released from the CDC and Massachusetts Department of Public Health our decisions may change. It’s important that we all remain flexible and vigilant during these times.
