Our parish celebrates two Masses on Sunday mornings and a vigil Mass on Saturday afternoon. Celebrating the Eucharist is the central activity around which we as Catholic Christians focus our Sabbath day. We set aside this one day each week to cease from work so that we may rejoice, rest, worship together, spend time with family and friends, and perform acts of service and hospitality to express our love and gratitude to God. This is sacred time, set apart so that we may find respite from worldly distractions and concerns, to reconnect with what is most important.
Many parishioners attend Mass on one or more weekdays, either routinely or on occasion. If your schedule permits, please consider joining us for daily Mass whenever you are able. (Note there is no Daily Mass on Thursdays or Saturdays, except for the first Saturday of each month.)
Mass times for holy days will be announced a week or so beforehand. For holy day Mass times, call the rectory at (978) 372-7721 or check the bulletin.

* Immaculate Conception is December 8, which is nine months before Our Lady’s birthday, September 8. In years where December 8 is a Sunday, the celebration of Immaculate Conception is moved to Monday, December 9, so that is why we are celebrating on December 9, 2019.
“Holy days are important feast days in the life of the Catholic community on which, in addition to Sundays, Catholics (who are above the age of reason and who are not sick) are obligated to participate in Mass according to the precepts of the Church. They celebrate an important mystery of the Catholic faith. The number of these holy days can vary from country to country. In the United States, there are six holy days of obligation.”
