The new normal: Mass at St. Kevin’s starting June 13

May 31–At the parish meeting held last Wednesday evening, Fr. Bob presented the plan for celebrating Mass at St. Kevin Church starting the weekend of June 13–14.  (At this time, Mass will not be celebrated at St. Benedict’s due to the size of the building.) The video of the meeting is below, but the major adjustments and changes for parishioners attending Mass are listed below. Watch the video to hear additional information; comments from Fr. Bob, Fr. Roland Simoneau, and Deacon John Fulton; and the questions posed by some of the parishioners in attendance.  The 10 a.m. will continue to be live-streamed on our website if you are uncomfortable attending Mass at this time.

Entering and exiting the church–Doors will be open to discourage touching door handles and push bars when entering and leaving the church.  Please avoid gathering and crowding together in the parking lot for the health and safety of all.
Seating–All pews are marked to indicate and maintain a 6-foot separation between rows.  Seating in Fr. O’Hara Hall is also properly spaced.  Face masks or coverings are encouraged but not required. Of course, families that live together can sit in the same row without social distancing.
Worshiping together–Missals have been removed from the church to prevent multiple people from handling them when attending Mass.  [*See below for personal missal suggestions.]
Holy Communion will be distributed at the end of Mass so that you can receive the Eucharist quietly and reverently and return to your cars.
Collections–Baskets will be placed at the church doors and at front of the church.  Please place your kind offerings to the parish in any basket.  You can also use parishgiving.org, our online option for supporting St. Kevin’s budget collections.
Please note–For the health and safety of all, both the church and Fr. O’Hara Hall will be sanitized after every Mass and restrooms will be closed.

*Missal suggestion:  Subscribe to the Magnificat, a monthly publication that contains the readings and prayers for every daily, holy day, and weekend Mass during the month.  The Magnificat can also be used as a spiritual guide containing additional prayers, texts, and meditations.  This publication is appropriate to bring to Mass and use as a missal.

*Missal suggestion: Purchase the St. Joseph Sunday Missal. This publication is appropriate to use at Mass.


May 27–Parish Meeting

St. Kevin’s will begin celebrating Mass in the church on the weekend of June 13–14 with the 5 p.m. Mass on Saturday.  A meeting was held on Wednesday evening to introduce, explain, and answer parishioner questions about the protocol we will follow to ensure that the health of parishioners is protected and the guidelines in place at that time for social distancing are followed.  Watch the video below for details.

Parish Giving is a safe, secure, and easy way to support St. Kevin and St. Benedict parishes by making your weekly budget donations online.

– Payments can be made by checking account withdrawal, debit, or credit card

May 10–Fifth Sunday of Easter

Last weekend’s Mass was celebrated Saturday evening in the Hendricken Chapel to kick off Hendricken’s Special 60th Anniversary For the Boys Virtual Gala.  Fr. Bob Marciano, President of BHHS, Fr. Brian Morris, chaplain, and Fr. Henry Zinno, presided at the Mass. Brian Harrington, Class of ’20 and Hendricken’s 2020 Man of the Year, served as lector.  Before the final blessing, Brian spoke to the Hendricken community and all who watched Mass virtually.  His comments and personal narrative describing the myriad lessons learned–both in and outside of the classroom–during his four years at Hendricken was both entertaining and moving.  But his most eloquent words of acknowledgment were saved for his family, fellow classmates, faculty, staff, and all who contribute to building and maintaining the Christian community that is Hendricken.   For information and to view more videos visit For the Boys Virtual Gala on the Hendricken website.
