Dear Parishioners,

For several months now we have been running regular updates about Disciples in Mission, the plan devised by the Archdiocesan Planning Commission over several years to ensure the ongoing vibrancy of our parishes. The plan calls for the establishment of "collaboratives" which will consist of neighboring parishes maintaining their identity while sharing pastoral and lay staff. St Paul's and St John's established a Collaborative Committee two years ago. The committtee, in concert with our Pastoral and Financial Councils has been meeting regularly to ensure the success of the proposed Wellesley Collaborative. As we reported in the spring, our parishes have volunteered to be part of "Phase III", the third of seven annual roll-out dates, in which the new model will be implemented.

 As called for in the model and reported in last week's Pilot, Father Powers and I submitted our resignations to Cardinal Sean. This winter a pastor will be named for our Wellesley Collaborative. The appointment's effective date will be June 2015. My annual retreat is scheduled for mid-October. I look forward to the extended periods of silence and time for meditation and prayer. Among other things, they should afford me an opportunity to discern whether to apply for the collaborative, to consider other assignments and to be open to the Lord's will.

To learn more about the plan check out the Archdiocesan Planning Office's website, www.disciplesinmission.com.

 Yours in Christ,

Father Rafferty
