As part of St. Paul's celebration of the Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis, we intend to recite the Chaplet of Divine Mercy daily at 3:00 p.m. in the lower church, beginning Jan. 1.  We encourage all the faithful to recite the Chaplet at this hour wherever they may be. There will be booklets for you to borrow in the church. You will recall that this was first requested by Jesus to St. Faustina. 

Lector Ministry Opportunity 

Is the Holy Spirit calling you to proclaim? If so, please consider joining the parish’s lector ministry and serving through proclamation of God’s Word at Sunday Mass. Lectors serve their ministry about once a month. Workbooks and individual coaching/feedback are provided to assist new Lectors. Please call Ed Boylan at 781-749-1558 or e-mail him at and join 25 of your fellow parishioners in this important ministry! High school/local college students are especially welcomed. We have a particular need for the 7am, 8:30 am, and 11:30 am Masses. Thank you.
