Welcome to all who have come to worship with us in our parish!
St. J’s Cares:
Our Collaborative Team is working diligently to serve and support our parishioners during these difficult days. We wish you to know that St. J’s cares for you! We are doing our best to work within the directives of the Archdiocese and the Commonwealth of MA, as we creatively seek to make contact with our parishioners and establish new norms of communication and meaningful contact, while also supporting the spiritual needs of our community.
Visit this page to learn about our creative way for providing our parishioners with the Sacrament of Reconciliation while honoring all of the directives issued by the Government and the Archdiocese.
St. J’s Cares Email Address:
Please email us at this new account SaintJsCares@gmail.com if you have a prayer intention, a particular need, or know of a parishioner who is in need of a call or some sort of outreach from our parish.
St. J’s Cares Email Communication:
We are seeking to obtain the email addresses of all of our parishioners to create an effective database where we can stay in meaningful contact with our parishioners, offering important updates on Church hours, sacramental opportunities, while also providing inspiring videos, live stream updates, and other resources to assist you. Registering for this email will also help us to update our parishioner database, in order to have a better sense of our community and how we can effectively serve you. To register, visit the Registration page.
In addition to the daily Live-Streamed Events (see above) we will also be hosting special hours of Adoration from 3:00 to 6:00 pm in the lower hall of St. John’s, Monday through Friday. During these difficult and uncertain times, our faith and prayer is a source of great comfort and support. We encourage people to use social distancing while in the Churches. Below is a directive from the Archdiocese:
“With careful monitoring priests may open their churches for prayer and adoration during clearly limited times; however, there can be no more than a total of 10 persons in the Church at any moment, there must be a member of the clergy present at all times. Social distancing and proper disinfecting procedures must be practiced. Please be sure to provide Lysol or Clorox or other approved germicidal wipes, with signage and directions that, upon leaving visitors should wipe the bench and other surfaces that they have touched. Visitors should use the same wipe to hold the door handle as they open the door to exit the church. A waste container should be left outside the door for disposal of the wipes.”
