Clergy Personnel Changes

Thank you to Fr. MacKay and welcome Fr. Blaney

It is with a mix of sadness and gratitude that we announce that our parochial vicar, Fr. Arthur MacKay, will be leaving us to take a new assignment beginning on June 1.  Cardinal Sean has asked Fr. Arthur to begin a new assignment as a hospital chaplain serving Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington and MetroWest Medical Center in Framingham.  With his gentle pastoral presence, deep faith and extensive medical background, Fr. Arthur will bring unique gifts to his new ministry.  For the past five years, Fr. Arthur has served the parishes of our collaborative with dedication, sensitivity and pastoral zeal.  We will miss him very much.  Our prayers and love go with him as he begins this new chapter in his priestly ministry.  A farewell event is being planned and will be announced soon.

Also on June 1, Fr. Robert Blaney will be beginning his ministry with us as the new parochial vicar for our collaborative.  Ordained in 2007, Fr. Blaney currently serves as parochial vicar of the Sacred Heart-Our Lady Help of Christians Collaborative in Newton.  Fr. Blaney is a very talented priest who is much beloved in his current parishes.  We welcome him with open arms and trust that you will give him the same loving support and encouragement that you so generously give to all of the priests who serve you.
