*** Updated COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS are in place for your protection. ***


The Massachusetts Department of Public Health has advised that even a "fully vaccinated person should wear a mask or face covering when indoors (and not in your own home) if you have a weakened immune system, or if you are at increased risk for severe disease because of your age or an underlying medical condition, or if someone in your household has a weakened immune system, or is at increased risk for severe disease, or is an unvaccinated adult." If you suffer from one of these co-morbidities you should consider wearing a mask in Church. DPH continues to advise that unvaccinated individuals should always wear a mask when indoors and not in their own home.

Sacraments

For assistance with any of the sacraments, please contact us at the rectory during normal business hours.

Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession)

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available every Saturday at 3:00 p.m. or by appointment. Special times are also offered during the season of Lent (please see the parish bulletin for details during Lent). Spiritual direction is also available by appointment.

Sacrament of Baptism

Baptisms are celebrated the third Sunday of the month in the church. Please call the rectory to register. Instruction is required for all parents seeking baptism of their child. Appointments for instruction may be made at the time of registration.

Sacrament of Marriage

Arrangements should be made at least one year before the wedding date is even set. Necessary interviews and marriage preparation are required before any marriage. Marriages are usually celebrated Saturday mornings.

Adult Confirmation

Special instruction is provided to baptized adult Catholics who have not received their First Communion or the Sacrament of Confirmation. Adult confirmations are usually held at the end of January or beginning of February at the Cathedral of Saint Paul in Worcester.

Care of the Sick

Please advise us of parishioners who are homebound, sick, or in the hospital, that we may keep them in prayer and, if possible, visit them. Please also notify us if anyone wishes to receive the Holy Eucharist or Anointing of the Sick.
