As individuals, families and parishes, our mission as the Diocese of Worcester is to respond joyfully to Christ’s call to become more fully the People of God. Though imperfect, we are a blessed people striving to participate in Christ’s mission of reaching out to all. Therefore, we accept the Gospel challenge, which calls us to bring another to a deeper knowledge and love of God. Since God calls us to live in community in the Holy Spirit, we commit ourselves in this time and place to becoming a prayerful and faith-filled Church that truly reflects the glory of God.

Christmas Message from Bishop McManus
My dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
During this season of joy, our hearts are stirred by the beauty, depth and constancy of God’s love for each one of us. Truly, God so loved the world that He sent His Son as our Savior (Jn 3: 16).
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus, our Christmas Mass, together with our family gatherings and customs, draws us together in the renewal of that comforting realization. Whether it be the words of the Christmas Gospel, the sight of a lowly manger, the sounds of a cherished carol or, above all, our receiving in Holy Communion the same Savior who was born at Bethlehem, we are deeply moved by the wonder, awe and reassurance that our good God has drawn close to us.
In that spirit, families gather to share their joy and love for God and one another. Pope Francis reminds us that the family is a “‘center of love’ where the law of respect and communion reigns and …no one is set apart” and that “the family continues to be a school unparalleled in humanity, an indispensible contribution to a just and supportive society.” CLICK HERE FOR COMPLETE LETTER
