Welcome to Saint Mary's Catholic Church - Easter Message

Interior of St. Mary's, Hampden, MA. We welcome all who seek a deeper meaning
in their life!

Dear Parishioners,

“HE IS RISEN, EVEN AS HE SAID, ALLELUIA!” This joyful message has been proclaimed by Christian people in many languages for over 2000 years.

It is time again to enter into the mystery of the dying and the rising of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and to reflect on the meaning this has for each one of us.

Below is our schedule of our Holy Week and Easter Services. I hope that you will be able to join with our fellow parishioners in celebrating these days of New Life.

May the Risen Christ give you and your loved ones the best of His blessings at this special season. We hope that you will be able to join us here at St. Mary’s for Holy Week and Easter. I look forward to greeting you personally.

Happy Easter,

Fr. Timothy J. Murphy Pastor
