Saint Mary's Parish is a Roman Catholic community of faith established in 1859 in Foxboro, within the Archdiocese of Boston. We are a parish committed to worshipping together, to publicly living, teaching and sharing our faith, and to working at becoming a community with a shared responsibility for meeting the challenge of being Roman Catholic in a modern world.
A very special thanks to Gerry Saegh who organized our Baccalaureate Mass this year. It was very well attended and Fr. Matt gave a wonderful homily. God's blessings to all our Foxborough Graduates!

Disciples in Mission: St. Mary’s Pastoral Writing Team Scans the Environment
The Team had their second productive meeting last May 9th . With help and guidance from the Archdiocese consultants, the Team had an interesting conversation on the environment and the different areas of parish life at St. Mary’s. They looked at ten specific areas where they hope to be able to bring the Archdiocese’s vision for the New Evangelization. The areas of parish life they discussed are prayer, leadership and organizational health, vision and communication, sacramental life, hospitality, faith formation, small group discipleship, promoting of vocations, apostolic and charitable activities, and stewardship.
Please continue to pray for St. Mary’s Pastoral Writing Team as they continue to discern the direction on how to evangelize, form and strengthen disciples within our parish.
The next Team meeting will be on June 13th. Explore the plan, the process, resources, and much more at www.disciplesinmission.com.
What is The New Evangelization?
The New Evangelization is a term coined by Pope St. John Paul II citing the need to evangelize societies who were once Catholic. In our Archdiocese in particular, it is reaching out to baptized Catholics to help light the fire of faith once again, or perhaps, for the first time. Both Pope Emeritus Benedict and Pope Francis have continued the call to the New Evangelization as a renewal within the Church. Many of us know Catholics who have fallen away from the faith. The New Evangelization is a way of reaching out, one person at a time and through our parish efforts, to invite home to the Church the members of our Catholic family who may be away from the Church or who may never have known what a real relationship with God can be like.
