Get Involved Although the body has many parts, it is one body. We, though many, are one body in Christ. We are the Church. Not a building. Not the staff of the parish, not the hierarchy alone --- all of us together are Church and all of us must respond to the Holy Spirit and build the Kingdom of God. Give some thought and prayer to trying one of the parish ministries if you are not involved already. Click here for a list of ministries. It will benefit you, it will benefit us as a community and it will spread the Good News.

Permanent Diaconate – Information and Inquiry Sessions

If you are discerning God’s possible call to serve the Church as a minister of charity, word, and sacrament as an ordained Deacon in the Archdiocese of Boston, you and your wife are invited to take part in the upcoming Inquirer program.  The program consists of four meetings:  three evening informational sessions to be held at the Pastoral Center in Braintree (66 Brooks Drive) on Tuesday October 7, 2014 7:00-8:30pm (Topic:  Who is the Deacon and am I called?), Tuesday October 14, 2014 7:00-8:30pm (Topic: How does diaconate ministry fit into marriage and family life?), and Tuesday November 4, 2014 7:00-8:30pm (Topic: The Application Process and Formation Experience), as well as a half-day discernment retreat to be held on Saturday November 15, 2014 (location TBA) from 9:00AM – 1:00PM (with lunch provided).  Those who are interested in the Diaconate are strongly encouraged to attend all four events along with their wives.  Please contact the Permanent Diaconate Office (deacondan_burns@rcab.org) to sign up or for more information.   The next group to be admitted into formation will begin classes in September 2015 at the Theological Institute for the New Evangelization in Brighton.  Our Church is global and multicultural and so we actively seek men for the diaconate from our many ethnic communities in the Archdiocese.  Academic classes are offered in English, however we can offer some support for those for whom English is not the primary language.  We also offer some academic courses in Spanish every four years, with the next such option beginning in September 2018.

MILTON CATHOLIC CARING CIRCLE (MCC) UPDATE

A few years ago, Pat Kelleher from St Mary of the Hills Parish  and Jim Burke from St Agatha Parish, teamed up to put flesh on a vision they both had  whereby the  Catholic Parishes located in Milton and that served Quincy as well, would reach out to those living in these communities on a neighbor to neighbor basis.  They need your assistance.
