  • Mass Intentions during Coronavirus Pandemic

    Father Thumbi celebrates the Holy Mass privately every day. The Catholic Church has a long tradition of offering Masses for prayer intentions and for the souls of the faithful. Many people offer a Mass intention for the repose of the soul of a loved one, but it’s also common to request a Mass in thanksgiving to our Lord, for health and blessing or special intentions. Intentions can even be offered for someone on their birthday, anniversary, or wedding day. Whatever your intention may be, Father Thumbi will be pleased to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for your intention. … [Read more…]

  • How to Support your parish during the Coronavirus pandemic

    As many around the world struggle with the Coronavirus, Our Tri-Parish community (St. Joseph, St. Anne, and St. Joachim) has not been immune to the effects caused by these recent events. Yesterday’s directive from Archbishop Etienne to suspend all Masses and activities, was an important step in helping slow the spread of the virus. This decision was not taken lightly. It was made from concern for the common good and care of the vulnerable in our community. This important step will seriously impact our weekly collection. Like most parishes, 90% of our revenue comes from the generous support of our … [Read more…]

    Like a trusting lamb led to slaughter. (Jeremiah 11:19) Unfortunately, I have known some people who have had their trust in others shaken to its core: a married woman with an infant is left by her spouse and left with no income; a child is physically abused; elderly parents are taken advantage of by family […]

  • Sunday Gospel reflections: ‘Lazarus laughed’ March 27, 2020
    He cried out in a loud voice, ‘Lazarus, come out!’ The dead man came out, tied hand and foot with burial bands, and his face was wrapped in a cloth. So Jesus said to them, ‘Untie him and let him go.’ (John 11:43-44) My spirits soar when I read this story with its wonderful human touches. […]

  • Live-streamed Eucharistic Adoration — Wherever you are! March 27, 2020
    I have been on my parish Adoration team — doing a scheduled one-hour-a-week on Fridays — since February 2001. It’s a habit I’m loath to break, unless sick — or, in this case, listening to a stay-at-home order from the governor of Massachusetts, as well as directives from our local diocese, during the pandemic of […]

  • The power of our presence to one another February 5, 2020
    Here we go again, I thought to myself as I entered the care facility to visit “Margaret,” the woman to whom I was assigned to visit as a volunteer with a local hospice organization. I drew a breath, said a quick prayer, knocked on the door, and walked a few steps into her room. I […]

  • A Catholic response to suicide January 29, 2020
    The severity of the suicide epidemic in the United States is a public health issue. What causes it, how to understand it, and how to prevent it has become a more common conversation, and yet suicide still remains a complex, sensitive, and difficult issue. While increased research attention has been given to suicide during the […]

  • Connection and joy: An antidote for the winter blues January 28, 2020
    The winter months aren’t always kind to us, and the months of January and February are the most notorious for snatching joy right out of our hands and hearts. And that’s just for “normal” folks. But additionally, according to Psychology Today, an estimated 10 million Americans suffer from SAD: Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD can have […]

  • New Year’s resolutions for the Catholic family December 30, 2019
    It’s that time of year again. Time to make a list of resolutions for the new year and forget about them before the month of January comes to an end. Or at least that’s how it usually goes for me. No matter what your resolutions are, if you take on too big of a change […]

  • Managing grief during the holidays December 17, 2019
    Grief has no timeline. There are moments in which memories of our deceased loved ones flicker in both the mind and heart, unexpectedly and unbidden. Our calendar years are peppered with these intense emotions of heartbreak and tenderness, longing and loss. But the holidays are particularly difficult to navigate when our hearts are mourning the […]
