All Are Welcome Here!

All Saints and St Mary's Churches

Dear Friends in Christ,

We are very happy to announce that Bishop Byrne has appointed a new Pastor for All Saints and St. Mary’s Parishes in Ware effective July 1, 2022. Until then all pastoral ministries would be covered by different priests with me personally overseeing the administration aspects of the parishes.

Father Piotr (Peter) Pawlus who will serve you as a new pastor was born in Poland in Radziechowy near Zywiec (South part of Poland). He was ordained at St. Michael’s Cathedral in Springfield on June 2, 2010. Currently Father Peter serves as the Pastor of Most Holy Redeemer Parish in Hadley where he is loved by all.

More information regarding Father Peter you can find it on social media especially in the current Catholic Mirror since Father Peter traveled to help Ukrainian refugees

Please keep you Pastor-Elect in your prayers.

God Bless,

Very Rev. Piotr Calik

Vicar General


Temporary change of the time of Daily Masses:
Dear Friends in Christ, 
 
Due to easier way to get coverage for daily Masses. After several consultations, I made a decision to change the time of daily Masses from 7:30am to 8:30am starting Monday, May 23 until the arrival of your new pastor Fr. Pawlus. Also Thursday, May 26 we celebrate the Ascension of the Lord - The Holy Day of Obligation: We will have 5:30pm Vigil Mass on Wednesday at All Saints and only 12:10pm Mass at St. Mary’s on Thursday. Memorial Day Masses are on different schedule based on weather. 
 
With prayers 
 
Fr. Piotr - Vicar General of the Diocese

LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD NOW!

The Massachusetts State Legislature is considering passing into law two deeply troubling bills this session which would legalize Physician Assisted Suicide. The bills, House 2381 and Senate 1384, are identical in text and titled “An Act relative to end of life options”.

The Catholic Bishops of Massachusetts stand united in our strong opposition to Physician Assisted Suicide. It is an affront to life and a dangerous precedent for determining end of life issues. Physicians are trained to care for the ill, not to hasten death.”[1]

Synod 2021 2023

Pope Francis has given all the Catholic faithful an opportunity to take part in the preparation for the 2023 Synod of Bishops in our own diocese and parishes. You might wonder why the experience of individual people is so important. Our stories illustrate how we live our faith in the concrete everyday of our lives. Listening to each other’s stories helps us relate to one another, to empathize, to recognize our common hopes and the faith that sustains us. If we are willing to ponder these stories and consider them in the light of our call to be Church, then we might be able to hear what the Spirit is saying to the Church in our time.
