Sacrament of Confession

We are very happy to announce that we are able to resume a regular time for hearing confessions.  While we are still unable to use our confessionals due to COVID protocols, we have set up a new space for confessions at the Collaborative Office Building at 552 Cabot Street in the Chapel.  Confessions will be heard every Saturday morning from 9am-10am.  When you pull into the Office Building, the chapel is located behind the building with a small parking area; the door will be propped open for ventilation. You will not be required to call ahead and confessions will be heard anonymously.  So that we don’t have to sanitize after each penitent, there will be no chair or kneeler available.  If you would like to go to confession during this time, you may wait in your car or form a line outside.  There will be a red spotlight on the ground by the open door...If the light is on, it means that someone is inside.  Please wait until the light is off before you enter.  Mask required. Every Saturday from 9am-10am at the Collaborative Office Chapel

“There is a time for everything…” Farewell to our organist, Patrick Valentino.

The Book of Ecclesiastes tells us that “There is an appointed time for everything and a time for every affair under the heavens.” This is the time for expressing gratitude and thanks, as we say “farewell” and “prayerful best wishes” to our St. Mary Parish Organist and Director of Music/Adult Choir, Patrick Valentino.

As you will see from Patrick’s message, below, he and his wife Jessica have decided to move with their young family to Kentucky to begin a new chapter in their lives. As much as we dislike having to say “goodbye,” we offer our sincerest encouragement and support to Patrick and Jessica, knowing that their new venture offers them a chance to settle in and flourish in their lives as professionals and as parents. The effective date of Patrick’s departure from St. Mary’s Parish will be June 15.

I’m grateful to Patrick for his diligence and for his Christian devotion and insistence on the high liturgical standards that have helped to continue the grand tradition of St. Mary’s. The choir will miss him, we will all miss him, but we say, “Ad multos annos!” To good things in the coming years!

Fr. David C. Michael

After much prayer and thought, I have made the difficult decision to step aside as Music Director at St. Mary’s. My family is being called to move out of state, and we trust that our service and the support we will gain in this new chapter of our lives will be the right move for ourselves and our children. While we are excited about the new opportunities, leaving St. Mary’s is the hardest part of this move. I will miss you all.

I would like to extend my profound gratitude to everyone at St. Mary’s and the Beverly Catholic Collaborative for your prayerful support, enthusiasm, and talents. It has truly been an honor to be entrusted with the stewardship of such a rich musical heritage, and I will take what I have learned to my new community, as I will take fond memories of my six years here in Beverly. While I’m sure there will be many goodbyes over the coming weeks, I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for our clergy, the parish staff, Chris and Bonnie, the supporters of the music ministry and the Stella Concert Series, and all the lovely members of our choir. Transitions are difficult but I am certain the right person will be found to lead St. Mary’s music ministry into the future.

Thanks again and many blessings to you all,

Patrick Valentino
