Our Churches Remain Closed at This Time

St. John the Evangelist Church and St. Paul Church remain closed at this time, and Masses have not resumed. 

The dispensation from the Sunday Mass obligation remains in place, and will continue for the foreseeable future. 

We are required to be in compliance with the guidelines and directives of the Archdiocese of Boston and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts before reopening our churches and resuming Sunday and daily Masses. We are working very hard to apply the required preparations and protocols so that when we do reopen, we can do so as safely and as reverently as possible. Updates will continue to be posted on our website and sent out to our email list as soon as they are available – please click the link below for the most recent update:



Our weekly recorded Mass appears here each week on Saturday afternoon. Please visit the Liturgy page to watch Masses and “Celebrations of the Word” recorded for previous weeks, and visit our Pastoral Blog, Peace in Uncertainty, for more homilies and reflections from Fr. Jim, Fr. Robert, Fr. Hehir, Msgr. Lind, Fr. Connelly, and our Pastoral Staff.

Mass for the Seventh Sunday of Easter
