Welcome to The Church of Saint Paul

Hamilton and Wenham

We Welcome You Back Fully

To  Holy Mass

Beginning Sunday, June 19/20

For our Sunday Privilege and Obligation

We share with you Cardinal O’Malley’s message concerning the lifting of the dispensation from attending Mass beginning on the weekend of Sunday, June 19/20.  Please find the Cardinal’s letter at the link below:


In welcoming you back to Mass we will do our best in assisting you through this transition period.  There will be greeters as you come and leave Church. Of course, if you are sick, you should absent yourself and if you have a vulnerable condition, you would be excused.

But for most of us, this is a blessed time, after 15 long months, to return, worship, and pray as members of God’s Holy People, the Church.  It is there alive at Mass where we show up, thank our God, and share in His Holy Word and Sacrament.

In accordance with CDC guidance, masks and distancing will no longer be required at Mass.  If you choose, you may wear a mask, particularly for those not yet vaccinated.  Also, for those who prefer additional space, a section by the two chapel windows will be reserved.  Let us be ever mindful of our brothers and sisters around us who may be vulnerable, for whatever reasons.

As always, your patience and understanding are most appreciated.

Best wishes and prayers,

  Father Michael Lawlor
