This week, we will be sharing the core area of the Forward with Faith Campaign for the Archdiocese and our parish.

Educating to Reignite the Faith Catholic education is crucial to the future of our Archdiocese. Currently, there are more than

A group of approximately 90 volunteers from St. John Fisher and the Marlborough Congregational Church joined forces during the HOTTEST weekend in July to serve 14 households in town. This first annual effort spanned three days, July 19 - July 21, and was highlighted by a kick-off barbecue, lunches each day, a Saturday Mass and pizza gathering and a wrap-up ice cream social for all volunteers and the residents whose homes we serviced. These gatherings were only made possible due to the generous donation of our air-conditioned St. Thomas More Hall and the volunteers who staffed these events!
