RESUMPTION OF PUBLIC MASS
It is with great joy as we begin Phase One of returning to Mass at St. James, scheduled for Jun 14! Right now, Masses will be held on Sundays only at 10 AM. Parking will be available from 9 AM to 1 PM. We are working diligently and carefully towards opening our doors for public worship on the guidelines set forth by both Gov. Baker and the Archdiocese of Boston. These guidelines will be STRICTLY enforced since we all have a role to play in keeping each other safe and healthy. The Cardinal has extended the dispensation. We recommend those 65 and older and anyone with underlying health conditions to stay home at this time, and to continue to attend Masses online praying in communion with us. After attending the online Mass, if so desired, you may come to St. James upper church to receive the Holy Communion between 11:15 AM and 12:00 NOON.

為你的堂區 - 現在90天 (90 Days Now - For Your Parish)
90-DAYS NOW – FOR YOUR PARISH
It is at times like these our faith reminds us that we are never truly alone, even as we face unprecedented challenges as a parish community. Though we are not able to join together in the celebration of the Eucharist, we continue daily to pray for the health of you and your loved ones.
I am reaching out to you about an effort created by a member of the laity with concern for our parishes during this time of crisis. It is a special, 90-day campaign that will provide offertory support directly to the parish.
This special initiative asks, if possible, for parishioners to rally around their parish by making a special daily offertory commitment for the next 90 days. This effort is intended to supplement weekly offertory gifts, given the challenges of the current crisis. Should you choose to join in this effort, the Archdiocese has created an easy-to-use link to donate.
The link is available by clicking this link: https://bcatholic.sites.bostoncatholic.org/90DaysYourParish
We are incredibly moved by this effort and forward this information for your consideration.
We understand many of you may not be able to contribute to this special offertory collection given the economic impact this pandemic has had on your personal finances. We remain extremely grateful for your prayers of support for our parish family.
