St. Mary Parish, Waltham

My brothers and sisters in Christ,
I want to offer a warm welcome to Father Agustín Anda
who will begin serving as a parochial vicar of Saint Mary’s
next week. Father David and I are grateful to God that
Cardinal O’Malley assigned Fr. Agustín to be with us. His
presence is a great gift to us and to all of the parishioners –
sacramentally, spiritually and fraternally. Fr. Augustín is no
stranger to Saint Mary’s. A few years ago, he stayed with us
for a summer so he is familiar with much of the daily
routine. Fr. Agustín often celebrated the 11:30 a.m. Mass.
Fr. Agustín looks forward to getting to know everyone at the
parish and wants to minister to everyone in need in the
parish. As he wrote in his letter (below), Fr. Agustín comes
from Mexico yet he studied at Saint John’s Seminary in
Brighton and was ordained for service in the Archdiocese of
Boston in 2004. Fr. Agustín has a great love for the
Eucharist. He has led numerous pilgrimages to the Holy
Land and loves bringing others to the places where our Lord
performed his ministry in the flesh. Please introduce yourself
to Fr. Agustín and welcome him to Saint Mary’s when you
see him. Congratulate him on ten years of priesthood! We
hope this one is his best year yet.
– Father Michael
Dear Parishioners,
I am the new priest who will begin serving on June 3rd
along with Fr. Michael and Fr. David. I am a Mexican
American Citizen, born in León, Gto. México. One of ten
children, from a Catholic and Pro-Life family, as you can
see. God Bless my parents, both are deceased. My four
sisters and five brothers live in Mexico. I studied Philosophy
and Theology at Saint John’s Seminary. I was ordained a
priest ten years ago, on May 22, 2004 at the Cathedral of the
Holy Cross in Boston. My last assignment was at Saint
James and Saint John the Baptist Parishes in Haverhill. I
pray that as we know each other better, we can work
together for unity and harmony in our parish. Please pray for
me. I will pray for you and with you. - Father A gustín A nda
Please join Father David Ssentamu on the weekend of June
28 & 29 following all of the Masses for a 15-minute
exhibition of his healthcare work in one of the rural health
centers in Uganda. For the last two years Father David has
made visits there with a medical team from around New
England. Don’t miss seeing this inspiring exhibition!
Refreshments will be served.
The next Mass with the anointing of the sick is scheduled for
this Monday, June 2 at 12:10 p.m. Anyone in need of

Next week’s second collection is for the Seminary.
Last Thursday as we celebrated the feast of the Ascension
we were reminded that Christ’s saving work on earth
continues through his disciples…and now through us.
When we give to the poor, God indeed pours his love, peace
and joy into our hearts, into our lives and into the hearts of
those who are poor.
We see the poor all around us and we long to respond to
their needs, and so we pray: Spirit of God, fill us with your
power. The hungry search for sustenance of body and spirit,
may we empty ourselves to reach out to them. Many children
are abused or live in poverty and fear, may we be advocates
for all those who feel unprotected. Victims of violence cry
out for justice, may we hear their cries and work for change.
For the grace of being called to serve the poor, we give you
thanks and praise! Amen.

We’ve been considering stopping Adoration of the Blessed
Sacrament on Wednesdays. There are times when no one
shows up. Last week, Darcie Nielsen of Live The Fast offered to set up an online schedule to see if people would
commit to a specific time. Please consider signing up to pray
before the very presence of Our Lord. The sign-up schedule
is available at our website
Let us be generous with our time in going
to meet Him in adoration and in contemplation
that is full of faith and ready to make reparation
for the great faults and crimes of the world.
May our adoration never cease.

Parishioners of the three parishes met four times in the past
few months. Subsequent to these meetings, a report was
written summarizing our conclusions. This process was requested by the Archdiocese in preparation for future collaboration whenever that may happen. The report includes an
inventory of properties of the three parishes and how they
might be used in the future. To read the report, please visit

My name is Jackie Zuppe, and I am a young woman from
the Waltham area. After much discernment, I have been accepted into a consecrated religious community known as the
Sisters of Life. Their mission is to uphold and enhance
the sanctity of human life, and they especially work with
vulnerable women in crisis pregnancies. In order to enter on
September 6 of this year, I must be completely free from my
college debt. Apart from working two jobs, I have been
fundraising and inviting parishioners from all around to help
me give Christ my full and free "yes". Next weekend, June 7
& 8, I will be holding a donation-based bake sale to help
contribute funds toward my loans. If you love sweets, or just
want to help me in my goal to enter religious life, please stop
by and say hello. I look forward to seeing you!

On Pentecost Sunday next week, members of Charlotte
Smith’s family and friends will gather outside after the 10
a.m. Mass to dedicate a bench made in her honor. So many
of us miss her presence. It is hard to think of Saint Mary’s
without Charlotte. The bench, facing the Crucifix, is meant
to be another place where people can come and pray to their
Lord just as she did when she was alive. We invite everyone
to attend this Mass and then join us outside for the dedication.
Parishioners (and singers!) Kateri and Maria Thekaekara
will be participating in a mission trip to Eastern Kentucky
from August 9-16. This Appalachian Service Retreat is to
one of the poorest regions of our country, where they and
other volunteers will help with projects needed in the local
community. To help defray their costs, Kateri and Maria will
be holding a fundraising concert on Saturday, June 7 from
12:00-3:00 p.m. in the lower hall. Please come and enjoy
these sisters’ beautiful voices as they praise God. No donation is too small; every little bit helps.
Looking for a great gift for a new graduate? Consider giving
a 133 CLUB NUMBER! Each month the 133 Club distributes $2,000 in awards ranging from $1,000 to $25. A number costs $5 per month and an annual membership is $55.
It’s a unique gift and it helps the parish. Your gift just might
be a winner. Call the parish office for more information.

electronics. To arrange a drop off of your items, please call

We encourage everyone to continue reading the Acts of the
Apostles this week …
Paul’s Address in the Synagogue.
So Paul got up, motioned with his hand, and said, “Fellow
Israelites and you others who are God-fearing, listen. The
God of this people Israel chose our ancestors and exalted the
people during their sojourn in the land of Egypt. With uplifted arm he led them out of it and for about forty years he put
up with them in the desert. When he had destroyed seven
nations in the land of Canaan, he gave them their land as an
inheritance at the end of about four hundred and fifty years.
After these things he provided judges up to Samuel [the]
prophet. Then they asked for a king. God gave them Saul,
son of Kish, a man from the tribe of Benjamin, for forty
years. Then he removed him and raised up David as their
king; of him he testified, ‘I have found David, son of Jesse, a
man after my own heart; he will carry out my every wish.
From this man’s descendants God, according to his promise,
has brought to Israel a savior, Jesus. John heralded his coming by proclaiming a baptism of repentance to all the people
of Israel; and as John was completing his course, he would
say, ‘What do you suppose that I am? I am not he. Behold,
one is coming after me; I am not worthy to unfasten the sandals of his feet.’
Thank you for continuing to donate to our St. Vincent de
Paul pantry. It always needs re-stocking! You may leave
your donations at the back of the church. Current needs:
canned fruits & veg.
dish & laundry detergent
canned soup
cereals & baking mixes
paper towels
pasta & spaghetti sauce
peanut butter & jelly
toilet paper
tuna & canned meats

Last year we began including questions and answers about
each line of the Creed to remind us what we mean when we
profess our faith. We will continue to do so until we reach
the end of the prayer. From the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church…
• Why does ecclesial ministry also have a personal
Ecclesial ministry also has a personal character in as much
as each minister, in virtue of the sacrament of Holy Orders,
is responsible before Christ who called him personally and
conferred on him his mission.
• What is the mission of the Pope?
The Pope, Bishop of Rome and the Successor of Saint Peter,
is the perpetual, visible source and foundation of the unity of
the Church. He is the vicar of Christ, the head of the College
of bishops and pastor of the universal Church over which he
has by divine institution full, supreme, immediate, and universal power.
• What is the competence of the college of bishops?
The college of bishops in union with the Pope, and never
without him, also exercises supreme and full authority over
the Church.
• How do the bishops carry out their mission of teaching?
Since they are authentic witnesses of the apostolic faith and
are invested with the authority of Christ, the bishops in union with the Pope have the duty of proclaiming the Gospel
faithfully and authoritatively to all. By means of a supernatural sense of faith, the people of God unfailingly adhere to
the faith under the guidance of the living Magisterium of the

Mis hermanos y hermanas en Cristo,
Quiero ofrecer una cálida bienvenida al Padre Agustín Anda
quien estará sirviendo a nuestra parróquia de Santa María
como vicario parroquial empezando la semana próxima. Tanto el Padre David como su servidor estamos muy agradecidos
a Dios que el Cardenal O’Malley haya asignado al Padre
Agustín a estar con nosotros. Su presencia es un gran regalo
sacramental, espiritual y fraternal para nosotros como para
todos en la parroquia. Hace algunos años el estuvo con nosotros por un verano, por lo tanto el ya esta familiarizado con
gran parte de la rutina diaria. De hecho, celebró frecuentemente la misa de las 11:30 a.m. Seguramente alguno de ustedes lo recuerda. El Padre Agustín ha dirigido varios peregrinajes a Tierra Santa y le encanta llevar a otros a los lugares
por donde Jesús anduvo predicando en carne propia. El Padre
Agustín esta muy emocionado de venir y no puede esperar
para conocerlos a todos y continuar con su sacerdocio en
nuestra parroquia. Por favor acércate a el cuando lo veas y
dale la bienvenida. ¡Felicidades por diez años de sacerdocio!
Padre Michael
Queridos fieles de la parroquia de Santa María, soy el sacerdote nuevo que se unira al Padre Michael, nuestro párroco y
el Padre David, el Vicario, para servirles. Soy MexicoAmericano, nacido en León, Gto. México. Uno de diez hijos,
de una familia católica y pro-vida, como pueden ver. Dios
bendiga a mis padres, los dos fallecieron. Mis cuatro hermanas y cinco hermanos viven en México. Estudié filosofía y
teología en el Seminario de St. John en Brighton y me ordené
hace diez años el 22 de Mayo de 2004 en la Catedral de la
Santa Cruz en Boston. Las últimas parroquias que he servido
son Santiago Apostol y San Juan Bautista en Haverhill, MA.
Le pido a Dios que al mismo tiempo que nos conocemos
mejor, trabajemos juntos por la unidad y harmonía en nuestra
parroquia. Pidan a Dios por mí; yo oraré por ustedes y con
Padre Agustin Anda
Me llamo Jackie Zuppe y soy una joven de Waltham.
Después de mucho discernimiento, he sido aceptada en la
congregación religiosa Hermanas por la Vida. Su mision es la
de mantener y mejorar la santidad de la vida humana. Ellas
trabajan especialmente con mujeres vulnerables embarazadas.
Para poder entrar el 6 de septiembre de este año debo saldar
mi deuda de la universidad. Además de tener dos trabajos, he
estado haciendo otras actividades para recaudar fondos como
la venta de reposteria que tendre los dias 7 y 8 de Junio en
Santa Maria después de las misas. Por favor, apoyame en
lograr mi meta de entrar a la vida religiosa, Gracias.

Se ha escrito un reporte sumarizando la conlusión de las cuatro juntas que se llevaron a cabo con feligréses de las tres
parroquias. Este proceso fue solicitado por la Arquidiocesis
para la preparación futura de la colaboración, cuando sea
que ésta suceda. El reporte incluye un inventario de las propiedades de las tres parroquías y de como pueden ser usadas
en el futuro. Si desea leer el reporte visite nuestra pagina o solicite una copia en la rectoría.
La semana entrante, el domingo de Pentecostés, familiares y
amigos de Charlotte Smith se reunirán después de la misa de
10:00 a.m. para la dedicatoria de la banca hecha en su honor.
Muchos de nosotros extraña su presencia. Es difícil pensar
en St. Mary sin Charlotte. La banca, que se encuentra justo
enfrente del crucifijo, esta destinada a servir como otro lugar
más para hacer oración, justo como ella lo hacia cuando estaba entre nosotros. Los invitamos a asistir a la misa de las
10:00 a.m y después reunirse afuera para la dedicatoria.
Divina Providencia! Nada somos, nada tenemos,
nada valemos; por eso, llenos de fé y de confianza
nos acercamos a tu trono, para pedirte que durante
este mes, que hoy principia, nos veas como cosa tuya,
nos libres de todo mal, de todo pecado, de toda ocasión de pecar; nos libres de una muerte repentina y
de morir sin los últimos sacramentos.
Venimos a pedirte que bendigas nuestro trabajo
para que éste, honradamente rinda. Que en nuestras
casas no falte el pan, nos consueles en todas nuestras
penas y nos remedies todas nuestras necesidades espirituales y temporales. Divina Providencia, en Tí
creemos, Divina Providencia, de Ti lo esperamos todo. Así sea.
Tu Divina Providencia se extienda en cada momento.
Para que nunca nos falte: casa, vestido y sustento. Ni
los santos sacramentos en el último momento.
