A Message from Fr. John Connelly

A Message from Fr. John Connelly

Fr. John Connelly has been in residence at St. John the Evangelist Parish since 2013, when he retired at the age of 90 after 30 years as Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Newton. We are so blessed to have had him with us for the past eight years, and will be forever grateful for all the ways he has enriched our faith community with his wisdom, grace, and humor, and for the profound impact he has had on parishioners and staff alike. Fr. Connelly recently made the decision to move to Regina Cleri, the priests’ retirement home in Boston, and asked us to share this message.

I have enjoyed quite a remarkable tenure here in Wellesley, and St. John’s will always have a special place in my heart…

Reminder: Mass Live Streams Begin This Weekend!

Reminder: Mass Live Streams Begin This Weekend!

All weekend Masses at the Collaborative will now be available via live stream on our website!  For our parishioners who are not yet able to come back in person, participating in a live Mass at one of our churches, together with fellow parishioners present in the pews, will be a far richer experience than a previously recorded Mass.

In addition to the live streams, we will continue to maintain our Previously Recorded Liturgies page. We will add a link to the recording of one of the Saturday Vigil Masses every weekend, so a recorded Mass will still be available to watch “on-demand” on Sundays (and any time thereafter.)
