Divine Mercy Faith Sharing Group

Denise Van Veen - Monday, October 01, 2018

What does Diving Mercy mean to you - as an individual, as a person in the community, as a member of the Church? In his encyclical Dives in Misericordia, St. John the Great wrote: "the genuine face of mercy has to be ever revealed anew... mercy seems particularly necessary for our times." Join us as we discover the ways that Divine Mercy affects our everyday lives and inspires us to higher goals. 

We will begin on Tuesday, October 2 at 10:00 AM in the Parish Center Conference Room at St. Catherine Church. This will be a 10-week faith sharing group. Our discussion will be centered around this great gift of God. 

For more information, please contact Pam Willey at willey6@aol.com.


Why am I required to complete a CORI form?

Dave Lebleu - Thursday, September 20, 2018



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.

Sexual Abuse Crisis-Bishop Barron's response

Dave Lebleu - Thursday, August 30, 2018


Friends, many of you have asked for my thoughts on the McCarrick abuse crisis, the Pennsylvania grand jury report, and the recent report from Archbishop Viganò.

Friends,

Many of you have asked for my thoughts on the McCarrick abuse crisis, the Pennsylvania grand jury report, and the recent report from Archbishop Viganò.

We're all devastated by the horrific suffering of these many victims, and we're all wondering what to do next.

I shared some thoughts a couple weeks ago, in an article, but I thought it might be helpful to have a more candid conversation today, building on the USCCB's statement just released, which I wholly support.

Please watch the discussion, and together let's pray for the victims and the entire Body of Christ.
