Parish Centennial Update

May 2016

The centennial initiative is not just about planning events for 2017. Rather, it is envisioning what we want our parish to look like in 2017 and beyond, and to begin moving to that place. The events and activities that have already taken place, and those that are upcoming, aim to unify us as a parish, make us stronger as a faith community, and prepare us for the future. In a way, this process is about discerning who God wants us to be as a parish. 


         Deepening the Faith

The goals for our 100th anniversary celebration are to:

Renew our faith

  • Increase the faith and spiritual growth of our parish
  • Help us encounter and develop a personal relationship with Jesus
  • Deepen our participation in Sunday Eucharist and sacramental life of the Church

Reconnect with our community

  • Reinvigorate members of the parish
  • Provide opportunities to meet, socialize, and renew relationships
  • Intentionally outreach to, and support, our many young families

Revive our commitment

  • Make Disciples
  • Emphasize ongoing adult faith formation as an integral part of parish life
  • Understand our role in the Body of Christ by reaching out and helping others as a way of sharing our time, treasure and talent

We are grateful to all who have been working on these endeavors. If you have any questions or would like to join our volunteers, please contact the rectory at 781-444-0245 or Susan Horne at shorne@saintjoes.com or Jill Meyers at ericandjillmeyers@yahoo.com or Diane Schwerdt at dcschwerdt@yahoo.com
