Continuing On In Faith
As we navigate the coronavirus pandemic, All Saints is committed to following the guidance of the Archdiocese of Boston and our local and federal government authorities for the health, safety, and well-being of our faith community. For the latest guidelines from the Church, please visit rcab.org.
Although we have been asked not to gather for public Masses, here's what we CAN do . . .
Pray & Be assured that our priests are also praying for you
During this difficult time when Masses have been suspended, please know that our priests and staff are praying for you.
March 24th Update:
The Bad News: To do our part in helping to stop the spread of coronavirus, Fr. Chris and Fr. Marcos have made the difficult decision to close the office and the church itself. We will reopen the doors as soon as the RCAB and local health officials feel it is safe to do so.
The BEST NEWS EVER: Jesus loves you! John 3:16
Join us in praying Pope Francis’s Prayer to Mary during Coronavirus Pandemic:
you always shine on our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who at the cross took part in Jesus' pain, keeping your faith firm.
You, Salvation of the Roman People,
know what we need,
and we are sure you will provide
so that, as in Cana of Galilee,
we may return to joy and to feasting
after this time of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who has taken upon himself our sufferings
and carried our sorrows
to lead us, through the cross,
to the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
Under your protection, we seek refuge, Holy Mother of God. Do not disdain the entreaties of we who are in trial, but deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.
Cardinal O’Malley has asked that “all parishes provide for their churches be open every day during reasonable hours in order that the Catholic faithful and other members of the community can have the opportunity to visit the church for times of prayer.” Know that we are here for you!
While the Office will remain closed until further notice, we are checking messages daily. If you have a question or are in need, please leave a message and we will call you back as soon as we can. If you know of a parishioner or someone in our community who needs help, please be sure to let us know.

Fr. Chris and Fr. Marcos will continue to post thoughts on the Gospel readings on our All Saints YouTube Channel: All Saints on YouTube These videos will also be shared on our facebook page: All Saints on Facebook
Continue to Support our Parish financially
We are so grateful for the outpouring of concern and support the parish has received the last few days. We understand that this may be a difficult financial time for many. Like many parishes, we depend on the weekly support of our collections. The loss of even one weekend’s Offertory creates great hardship. If you are able to continue your financial support during this difficult time, please know that online giving is available on our website: All Saints Online Giving
If you prefer to send your normal weekly envelopes, please do so by mail or drop them at the Rectory, through the slot in the side door.
Help Us Better Our Communication
We are working to improve our communication with all parishioners. If you have not yet given the office your email address, please email us at [email protected] and ask to be added to our list. Also, please follow us on facebook (All Saints Facebook Page) and continue to visit our website for regular updates.
Remain Hopeful! Jesus, we trust in You!
St. Frances de Sales offers us this prayer of comfort:
Do not look forward in fear to the changes and chances of this life;
Rather, look to them with full confidence that, as they arise,
God, to whom you belong will in His love enable you to profit by them.
He has guided you thus far in life, and He will lead you safely through all trials;
and when you cannot stand it, God will bury you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering,
or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, then, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations. Amen.
