We are now going into the sixth year of collaboration. How are we preparing for future adjustments and transitions that may occur within the next year? Over the last five years we have collected data at every Mass that indicates a decline in Mass attendance over the summer. People adjust their schedules over the summer and rightfully so. It is time for us to do the same. Our current schedule is not sustainable if someone becomes ill and cannot function and/or we do not receive an SMA priest for the summer. This new summer schedule will remain in place whether we receive an SMA priest or not. Having a schedule in place that one priest can fulfill the mission of the Church and offer the many services we do, we are still counting on your financial support. There are ways of giving whether it be online or through envelopes, whether you are physically present or not. Please let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for your consideration as we attempt to be proactive moving forward in collaboration.
Are you someone who “used to be Catholic”?
Did you “grow up Catholic” but haven’t connected with a local parish?
Are you a Catholic who is searching for a more spiritually fulfilling life?
Are you thinking about becoming more active in your Catholic community?
Would you like to participate more fully in the Catholic liturgy and sacraments?
No matter how long you have been away for whatever reason, we invite you to consider renewing your relationship with Christ and His Church through LANDINGS. LANDINGS is a Paulist Ministry, run by parishioners of the St. Anne – St. Catherine Collaborative, aimed at welcoming Catholics who want to deepen their faith and commitment.
LANDINGS is an open, non-judgmental place to ask questions about Christ and the Catholic faith. It’s a place where you will be respected and listened to. LANDINGS is not a place where you will experience pressure, judgment or condemnation.

Back on April 2018, Catholic Stewardship Consultants (CPC) conducted a parish survey for the
St. Anne & St. Catherine Collaborative, to better understand attitudes and perceptions about
various areas of parish life.
A self-administered survey containing 62 questions was developed and handed out to parishioners
at weekend masses on April 21st and 22nd, 2018.
The link below provides access to a Summary Report that outlines the high level results and
recommendations for each survey area. Please contact the Parish Office if you wish to get a copy
of the full 180+ page report.
If Westford or Littleton Schools are closed due to inclement weather, ALL activities at St Catherine and St Anne Parishes are canceled for the day and evening. This is to allow work crews to remove snow, de-ice our walkways and parking lots, and make our facilities safe for all. Parish closing information will be posted on channel 5 only.
If Westford or Littleton schools have a delay, morning mass is canceled. (does not apply to Funerals)
Religious Education class cancelations for weekends will be posted on tv, channel 5 only.
If dangerous weather occurs on a weekend, please use extreme caution. The Lord does not want you to be injured trying to come to Mass.
Thank you for understanding.
God Love, Fr Peter
Why do I need to fill out a CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) form?
At the St. Anne – St. Catherine Collaborative, we are committed to ensuring the safety of our children, youth, elderly and disabled brothers and sisters. As a part of that commitment, we adhere to all guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Boston. One of those requirements is annual background checks. Some of the more frequent questions we have been asked are:
Who needs a CORI check?
The Archdiocese of Boston requires that all clergy, including those not serving in a parish, and all parish staff (full and part-time), together with all volunteers (18 years of age and older) who minister to or have the potential for unmonitored access to children, youth, elderly or the disabled, undergo a CORI check.
Why do I have to fill out a CORI request form every year?
The CORI Policy of the Archdiocese as well as Archdiocesan Policies and Procedures for the Protection of Children require an annual CORI.
If I fill out a CORI form someplace else, why do I have to fill one out for the Church?
Criminal offender record information may not be shared among entities certified to have access to CORI.
Why do I have to provide so much personal information on the CORI form?
The Commonwealth determines what information must appear on the CORI request form. The specific information ensures that the returned CORI belongs to the person who filled out the request form.
