Saint Brendan's ONE BOSTON DAY 
Saint Brendan's School and the community came together to honor and remember the countless lives impacted by the Boston Marathon Bombings. The children gathered in the schoolyard to sing a song of peace, recited a poem, and had a moment of silence for the four lives that were lost.

History of Saint Ann Parish



Saint Ann Pray for Us

You were favored by God and called to be the

Mother of the Most Holy Virgin Mary.

You are thus blessed to be Grandmother of our Savior Jesus Christ.

By your intimacy with your most pure daughter and her divine Son,

protect this parish and family dedicated to

your saintly protection and intercession.

In your kindness, obtain for us the grace to love as a child of God.

Watch over our family.

Secure for us the strength of faith. Guide us to

perform faithfully all of our daily duties.

With God’s Mercy and the Divine Assistance help us in our time of need

and teach us to persevere in the love of Jesus and Mary.


Our Patron, St Ann

Our patron,

 St. Brendan the Navigator,

once prayed as he was traveling, 

"Lord, help me,

for your sea is so big and my boat is so small."

  May Our Lord,

through this Parish Community,

help you navigate this big sea of life and guide you safely Home.

Our Patron, St Brendan

He is Risen, Indeed!

Happy Easter

Message from Fr Soper

As the summer, at long last, approaches, I would like to propose two changes in the Mass schedule to you. Please note carefully that this is only a proposal. I am actively seeking feedback on this. You can see either me or Father Tom, or you can email me the feedback at, or you can call me. I'm taking your feedback on this very seriously, so I will give you my cell phone number - it is (978) 502-1920. First, Saint Brendan is a Parish that is filled with young people - youth and young adults - and every person who has worked in Parishes in recent years will tell you that youth and young adults prefer to go to Mass on Sunday evening. So, I am proposing moving the 8:00AM Mass at Saint Brendan to 5:30PM. If we were to do this, we would, in the fall, adjust our Collaborative Confirmation program to tie it to that Mass. We would seek to provide music at that Mass that would be attractive to a youth and young adult congregation. To help the people who would be losing their customary 8:00AM Mass through this change, we would move the 8:30AM Mass at Saint Ann to 8:00AM. So, if we were to do this, Masses at Saint Brendan would be at 4:00PM Saturday, and 10:00AM and 5:30PM on Sunday. Masses at Saint Ann would be at 4:00PM on Saturday, and 8:00AM and 10:30AM on Sunday. One other benefit of the change outlined above is that it would take us one step closer to a schedule in which, in an emergency, one priest could cover the Masses of the Collaborative. We are not yet in that situation, so we don't have to go all the way there yet, but someday we will be in that situation, and it is good to be mindful of that as we make any adjustments. This change would fix one of the three overlaps – we still overlap at 4:00PM on Saturday, and at 10:00/10:30AM on Sunday, but we can worry about that at another time. A second proposed change would be mostly for the benefit of families and working people. I would propose, ONLY DURING THIS SUMMER, to move the 9:00AM Thursday morning Mass to 7:00PM on Thursday. Confessions would be available for an hour before the Mass, and afterward as well. At least sometimes there would be a family activity, like Pizza or Ice Cream, or even a cookout, right after the Mass. Sometimes the Mass would be at Saint Brendan and sometimes it would be at Saint Ann - we would put together a clear schedule. I really believe that both of these changes would help us to grow. Again, these are only proposals. What do you think of them? Please let us know if you like them, and let us know if you don't like them. We want to hear.
