See THIS VIDEO for an excellent, concise visual presentation of our consolidation.
– As of August 1, 2020, the 3 Parishes of Billerica became one new Parish, St. Matthew the Evangelist.
– The Parish of St. Matthew covers the entire town of Billerica. St. Andrew, St. Mary and St. Theresa of Lisieux Parishes are replaced by St. Matthew Parish. (a parish is technically a territory, like land, but not a church building)
– We have multiple campuses and worship sites. Click here for a video from the summer of 2021 about the challenges of deferred maintenance on so many properties and buildings.
– One Pastor, one Parochial Vicar, Two Deacons and one unified staff… In one office
