Parish Mission Statement

The mission of our Saint Blaise Catholic Community is to be people of prayer dedicated to spreading the Good News of God's saving love to all, as we journey together in faith. As a sacramental people united in the Eucharist, we seek to develop and strengthen our relationship with Jesus.

Through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we give witness to God's Word, actively following the Gospel message of peace, love, and Social Justice.Ref.

Our Parish Prays For Life:

A Holy Hour for Life will be held on Sunday January 18th at St. Blaise as part of the Archdiocesan observance

the Archdiocese so that we will be praying in solidarity
with the thousands of pilgrims going to Washington,
D.C. for the March for Life. Led by Fr. Al, we, along
with our brothers and sisters of St. Brendan's will
pray together for those who have been wounded by
abortion, for respect for the dignity of human life from
conception to natural death, and that those who govern
us may be guided by justice, truth, and a love for
the gift of life. The Holy Hour is organized by Boston
Deacons for Life in collaboration with the Pro Life Office
of the Archdiocese of Boston. Please join us, all are
welcome.

January 18 ~ Second Sunday of Ordinary Time:

There is nothing ordinary about Ordinary Time. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and celebration of Sacraments are never "ordinary". Our Catholic faith is extraordinary – everyday. How willing are we to share it? In the readings today God calls each person to "Come…" God depends on us to spread the saving message of His Son to others. With Samuel's words, pray for the courage to say, "Here am I, Lord; I come to do your will."

Clergy Health
and Retirement Trust:

The Christmas collection was for the Clergy Health
and Retirement Trust which supports the health and
well-being of the 628 active and senior priests in our
Archdiocese. Our parish contribution will have a significant
impact on the programs we are able to provide
for our priests in this New Year and beyond. If
you were out of town this Christmas or did not have
the opportunity to participate and you wish to make a
gift, please visit www.clergyfunds.org. On behalf of
the priests of our Archdiocese, thank you for your
prayers and generous support of the Clergy Health
and Retirement Trust.
