May 17 Announcement About Father Chip

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
