Collaborative Announcement

The Archdiocese of Boston has informed us that we will be forming a two parish collaborative that will include Our Lady of Grace, Chelsea/Everett and  St. Mary of the Assumption, Revere. 

This collaborative will begin June, 2018.   Fr. James Barry  will resign as pastor and will request to be granted Senior Priests status (retirement).  Father John Sheridan will join be the pastor of the newly created collaborative of Our Lady of Grace, Chelsea/Everett and  Saint Mary of the Assumption, Revere.  

May we all pray for God’s guidance during this year of transition.


Dear Parishioners,

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Fr. John Sheridan. I am 54 years old, I grew up in Newton, the eighth in a family of nine children (I’m number 8). I am very close to all my siblings, who live around the Boston area. A graduate of Newton public schools, I am a graduate of St. John’s Seminary and was ordained in 1990- alongside my pal Fr. Mark Riley, son of Our Lady of Grace and Prattville!   

I’ve served in several parishes in many different roles- as associate at St. Joseph in Salem, St. Ann in Neponset, and St. Cecilia in Ashland, chaplain of Marian High, administrator of St. Thomas Aquinas in Jamaica Plain and St. Benedict in Somerville, and pastor of St. Matthew in Dorchester, St. Thomas in Peabody, and St. James in Salem. Five years ago, I became pastor of what has become known as the Cranberry Catholic Collaborative: Sacred Heart in Middleboro, Sts. Martha & Mary in Lakeville and St. Rose in Rochester- one of the first Collaboratives in the Disciples in Mission process, which I am very much committed to and look forward to developing here.

I’m an avid sports fan and enjoy movies, music, and technology. I am very anxious to meet everyone from St. Mary’s and Our Lady of Grace. I know what a wonderful job Fr. Barry has done in both parish families, and I want to build upon it. 

I ask your patience as I say goodbye to my Cranberry folks and retrain my car to head over the Tobin, as I start officially in June. I know that this will be a difficult goodbye for you and Fr. Jim, too, and I assure you my prayers. As we walk through these weeks of transition, may Our Blessed Mother guide our steps as we work together to strive to do God’s will! Onward!

Fr. John 


Prayer Challenge

For those of you in Our Lady of Grace and St Mary's Parishes, Linda DeCristoforo has given us all a challenge! In the 50 days after Easter and until Pentecost, can you do 50 for 50? Either 50 push-ups for 50 days or 2 rosaries for 50 days -- or 1 rosary -- or one Hail Mary -- or two Hail Marys -- or .... ?

All of this will be our prayer for a smooth transition as we say good-bye to Father Barry and welcome to Father Sheridan.  As both of our parishes are dedicated to Our Lady, we pray, through her intercession, for a blessed beginning of our collaborative.

Join us on Sundays at 10:15 for a communal recitation of the the Rosary.  We will start on April 8th.

If you want to join in on the prayer challenge, please let Linda DeCristoforo know by email at lindec@comcast.net

Please check out the new bulletin board at Our Lady of Grace Church about the February trip to Haiti.  We have many photos of this latest trip; so we will show them in several displays.  This first display shows the building of pews and arrangement of donated church items for the main church at St. Joseph in L’Asile as well as the dedication of the chapel in Anglade.

 God bless the people of St. Mary of Assumption, Our Lady of Grace, and our brothers and sisters in Haiti!

Welcome to Our Lady of Grace Parish

Father James Barry, Pastor

Welcome to Our Lady of Grace Parish website! The site includes information about the life of our community, both personalities and events. There are pictures and words that will describe many situations. To find out who we are, what we do and what we believe, come join us for the celebration of the Eucharist or one of our Generations of Faith sessions. As in the gospel of John (1:38-39), we invite you to “come and see.”

Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”

Lauduto Si Society

The second chapter of Ladauto Si is called the Gospel of Creation and in it Pope Francis states that the ecological crisis in which we find ourselves is complex, and solutions must come from every culture and tradition, from art and poetry as well as from spirituality.  Pope Francis adds his hope for worldwide dialogue through the encyclical and hopes that Christians will realize their responsibility within creation.
