Welcome to St. James Parish & St. John the Baptist Parish

Bienvenidos a la Comunidad Hispána:  pulse aquí

The 2016 Catholic Appeal campaign is well underway at St. James and St. John the Baptist Parishes. Thank you to all who already have participated. Your generosity will benefit hundreds of pastoral, charitable, and educational programs at work within the Archdiocese of Boston, and at our parishes. The following is our parishes' Catholic Appeal standings as of April 26th:
St. James Parish: 193 Parishioners have donated/pledged $33,159 which is 85% of our goal/assessment of $39,134
St. John the Baptist: 94 Parishioners have donated/pledged $14,940 which is 42% of our goal of $35,366 and 121% of our assessment of $12,394.16. (Parishes receive a 60% rebate of the paid pledges over the assessment amount)
With funds still to raise, we need the participation of every parishioner. If you have yet to participate in this year’s Catholic Appeal, please take a pledge form from the back of the church or pledge online at Thank you for your prayers and support for a successful Catholic Appeal. Please watch the 2016 Appeal Video.

EASTER 2016 Thank you to all who were involved in all the parts of the Holy Week and Easter season liturgies. At both parishes, there were lots of people who helped out in large and small ways and it made it all a wonderful time. It is always busy at this time of year and so it is important to step back and recognize that what we are doing sometimes has more effect than what we were thinking.  We hope that all will continue to grow, in this Easter season and those to come, to realize that we are stronger together now than apart. “That all may be one” is part of the prayer of Jesus before his death. Hopefully, our Parishes working together this helps us to realize his prayer.   Please click here to see pictures of our Easter Season. Be sure to check back as we will add pictures as they become available.
