New Mass Schedule (from Father Paul)
After consultation with the Pastoral and Finance Councils and the Staff and taking a number of changes in our collaborative into consideration, I asked the Pastoral Council to recommend a Year Round Mass Schedule that will serve the people of the collaborative with plenty of room for welcoming new parishioners and more opportunities for Mass Times.
The new schedule was approached prayerfully by considering the average Mass attendance for the past three years, with the goal of serving not only the needs of each individual parish but also considering the needs of the collaborative. We all like the comfort of familiarity, we park in the same section at the Mall, sit in the same pew at Church, and buy the same brand of peanut butter, so I appreciate the fact that this will bring many out of their comfort zone.
After a year with the proposed schedule, we will review constructive feedback about how the new schedule is serving the church in Billerica.
