Perhaps you (or someone you know) isn’t able to travel to Mass each weekend and would like a visit from a Eucharistic Minister? Or would benefit from a social visit at the holidays or on a weekly or monthly basis? Or might be interested in a pastoral visit from a parish member or member of the Collaborative staff?

To help us gauge interest and build our list, interested individuals are invited to visit the Collaborative website  ( or contact our Pastoral Care staff (Kelly Meraw and Sr. Colleen Gibson) by calling the Collaborative offices (St. John: 781-235-0045 and St. Paul: 781-235-1060).

As Pope John Paul II first said and Pope Francis repeats in The Joy of the Gospel, we are called as a Collaborative “to be ‘the Church living in the midst of the homes of her sons and daughters.’” Thank you for helping us to draw more closely together as neighbors “living communion and participation” as we accompany one another along the way!
