Parish Pastoral Council
The Parish Pastoral Council shares with the Pastor a role of leadership in identifying the pastoral needs of the parish and in the building up of the Body of Christ by welcoming God's faithful in a caring, Christian community. The Council consists of thirteen ordinary members elected by the parish, as well as ex-officio members. The administration of parish activities is coordinated through Standing Committees including, for example, Liturgy, Christian Education, Parish and Community Life, and Social Action. St. Mary's parishioners interested in becoming a Council member should contact the Pastor as well as submit a resume.

Current members of the Council include Rev. John Ronaghan (Adminstrator/Chairperson), Sheila Campbell ’01 (Vice-Chairperson), Madeline Brennan ’08, Bob Tripp ’08 (Finance Council Rep.), Jason Adams ’08 (Young Adult Rep.), Fiona Bruce-Baiden (Youth Rep.), Nick St. Louis (Youth Rep.), Patricia Abbett ’01, Catherine Caddigan ’10, Tom & Jackie Dugan’02, Vilma Gonzalez ’08, Joyce Rodriquez ’10, Cheryl Singleton ’08, Jean DesLouches, Frank Gates ‘12

Staff Meetings
Every other Friday morning the staff of St. Mary Parish, along with Father Coyne, Father Barry and Deacon Jim Eames meets to discuss past, current and future events that impact the parish. We find that this form of communication allows us to make informative judgments and decisions as well as it allows us to creatively think of events that will bring joy, peace and well being to the spiritual, physical and financial development of the parish.

Music Ministry
The goal of the music ministry is to enhance the weekend and special liturgies wth inspirational and uplifting music. We have an Adult Choir that ministers through their singing at the 10:00 a.m. Mass every Sunday (formal choir September - May and informal choir June - August). Our repetoire consists of a wide variety of music ranging from contemporary praise songs to classical choral works. New members age 15 & up are always welcome. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evening from 7-8:30 from September through May. For more information, please see Felicia Kopelman-Hayes after any of the Masses, or call the Parish Center at (781) 963-4141.
