Welcome to the Natick Catholic Community Website

May 17, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Prayers that this note finds you healthy and well!  I know these are challenging times for all of us but please know you are in my prayers and the prayers of Fr. Alfano, Fr. Chip and Fr. Leroy every day! 

I want to take the opportunity today to update you on some happenings in our parishes over the last few months.  A belated but sincere congratulations to this year’s Cheverus Award winners from our parishes: Chuck & Maria Young from St. Patrick and Molly Duffy from St. Linus.  The Cheverus Award is presented each year to individuals throughout the Archdiocese for their service to the Church and to God’s people.  What a wonderful example our parishioners have been in leading the way for all of us in our Natick Catholic Community – thank you!

We also had the retirement of our long time custodian, John Connolly, late last year.  As many of you know, John had been an amazingly hardworking part of our team for over 16 years and it was with great sadness that I accepted his resignation.  John will be missed.  Our new custodian, Jake Reeves, has taken over the helm together with Ken Custodio and they are doing a great job for us.  Many thanks to all for their continuing commitment to our parish buildings and grounds!

Finally, effective immediately, Fr. Chip will be the new Administrator of our Natick Catholic Community.  This new appointment will ease some of the day to day responsibilities on me as I continue cancer treatments, recover from a recent surgery and prepare for radiation therapy.  I will remain as Pastor of both St. Linus and St. Patrick but Fr. Chip will begin to take on more responsibilities with a pastor’s authority, to help our parishes continue to run smoothly.  I am grateful to Fr. Chip for working together with me on this and I know you will give him your support. 

Please continue to keep me in prayer as I pray for you.  Together, there are many good days ahead!

In Christ,

Fr. Mike


God rescues us from dangers beyond all human expectation…so that we might not trust in ourselves but in God…from so great a danger did He deliver us, and does deliver us; we hope in Him, for He will deliver us again.”
- St. Basil the Great

Dear St. Linus & St. Patrick Parishioners & Friends:

During these most unsettling times please remember that our parishes are dependent completely on your weekly financial support. Without our weekend collections we will not be able to pay our bills, our staff or our clergy. We already have been through the first weekend without a collection and, of course, it is uncertain how much longer we will be without weekend Masses. Without these funds, I honestly am not sure how we will survive. Please remember to give weekly through our online giving options:

or in whatever manner is easiest for you. We trust in God & know He will provide for us but we all need to continue to do our part. Thank you & know you are in the prayers of all of our parish clergy & staff.

God Bless, Fr. Mike

Welcome to the Natick Catholic Community of St. Linus and St. Patrick.  Natick Catholic Community was established on June 3, 2014.  We welcomed our shared clerical team with open arms. This includes our Pastor Fr. Michael MacEwen; Parochial Vicar Fr. Michael Alfano; and Priest-in Residence Fr. Leroy Owens. Fr. MacEwen and Fr. Alfano live at the St. Patrick rectory and Fr. Owens lives in the St. Linus rectory. 

Whether you're a current parishioner, a Catholic from another parish thinking about joining us, curious about becoming Catholic, or just interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, we welcome you! Please look around our website - we have lots of great information, as well as pictures, a calendar, descriptions of the various ministries we participate in, and more.  We invite you to get closer to Jesus Christ, no matter what your reasons are!
