Welcome to the Natick Catholic Community Website

March 18, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I write today as we are moving our way through this unprecedented time of unsettling anxiety.  Although we are unsure of how long this period will last, I wanted to reach out to you with the assurance of my continued prayers.  While public Masses currently are not being celebrated, please know that the Priests of our Parishes are remembering you and your loved ones in our daily private Masses.  Distancing ourselves from each other unfortunately is a current reality but distancing ourselves from Christ is something we must never do. 

During this time, please know that our Adoration Chapel remains open.  This is a beautiful way for us to bring our needs, petitions & prayers to the Lord in the silence of our hearts.    Although we cannot join together as a parish family during this time for the celebration of Mass, we all can find ways to make time for God and keep the Sabbath holy.  Our greater freedom of schedules can afford us the wonderful opportunity of engaging in spiritual activities.  Perhaps a family recitation of the Rosary, praying the Stations of the Cross or reading the Sunday Scriptures and discussing them together, praying together the prayer Pope Francis offered to our Blessed Mother for the protection and deliverance from Covid-19 (quoted below), are just some examples of how we might be intentional about making time for the Lord on the Sabbath.

I encourage all of us to pause in this moment and remember that we are part of a community of believers and neighbors.  We must remember to be aware of those around us and never forget that we all are children of God who need each other’s support, love and prayers.  Please remember to check-in with family, friends, neighbors and parishioners who may be in a difficult or vulnerable position.  If you are able to offer assistance to them, please do with the knowledge that we all are the hands of Christ.  We, too, are always here at the parishes to offer any assistance that we can.

O Mary, you always shine on our path as a sign of salvation and 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.

Asking God to bless you and all those you hold dear and praying for a speedy end to this pandemic, I am

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Very Reverend Michael W. MacEwen, V.F.

Pastor


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!
