Spotlight on Pilgrim Catholic Collaborative
It’s Official - Our Collaborative Plan Has Been Approved

Our Pilgrim Catholic Collaborative implementation plan has been approved by Cardinal Sean! After many months of work by your Collaborative Plan Writing Team – and with parishioners’ guiding input – the Cardinal pronounced our plan “very fine!” 

While our three parishes, Saint Kateri, Our Lady of Lourdes and St. Peter, will maintain their individual identities, we are now joined in the Pilgrim Catholic Collaborative, a new organizational entity facilitating our cooperation, coordination and the achieving of our common goals of Discipleship and Evangelization. 

Where Can I find the Plan?

The final plan is now available on each parish’s website on the main page and it will soon be available in booklet form for those that would like one. Our Plan, of course, like any plan, is just a beginning. It sets forth goals for the next year and it includes specific tasks supporting those goals. Now, it is up to us to put the Plan into action!

Help Solve the Mystery

In the late 1990’s, Fr. Aiden Walsh, then Pastor of St. Peter Parish, accepted the gift of our beautiful stained glass window now placed on the wall behind our altar.  We know the figures on the left, Peter accepting the Keys of the Kingdom as well as James and John.  On the right, we see Jesus giving Peter the Keys but we have no definitive idea of the other saint. Do you? Can you help? Some hints:

  • The stained glass was obtained from a Polish-American Parish in Norwood that closed in 1997.
  • The saint is likely carrying a crosier an indication he may have been a bishop.
  • The saint is decalced (shoeless) indicating he may have been a monastic i.e. Discalced Augustinians,Carmelite,Mercedarian,Passionist,Trinitarian,Cistercians,Servite
  • The saint may be from or a patron of the Polish people since it comes from a Polish American Church founded in 1918.

 Do you? Can you help? Please let us know if you have any information.

Pope Francis’ Five Finger Prayer

Using the fingers on your hand, start with the thumb and pray these intentions in this order:

1.) The thumb is closest finger to you. So start praying for those who are closest to you. They are the persons easiest to remember. To pray for our dear ones is a “Sweet Obligation.”

2.) The next finger is the index. Pray for those who teach you, instruct you and heal you. They need the support and wisdom to show direction to others. Always keep them in your prayers.

3.) The following finger is the tallest. It reminds us of our leaders, the governors and those who have authority. They need God’s guidance.

4.) The fourth finger is the ring finger. Even though it may surprise you, it is our weakest finger. It should remind us to pray for the weakest, the sick or those plagued by problems. They need your prayers.

5.) And finally we have our smallest finger, the smallest of all. Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. When you are done praying for the other four groups, you will be able to see your own needs but in the proper perspective, and also you will be able to pray for your own needs in a better way.

—Pope Francis
