It is with joy and pleasure that I welcome you to the North Quabbin Catholic Community website. This Catholic community serves the needs of the Cluster Parish which is formed by parishioners from four churches: Our Lady Immaculate and St. Francis of Assisi in Athol, St. Peter's in Petersham, and Our Lady Queen of Heaven in South Royalston (which was merged with Our Lady Immaculate as of July 1st, 2012).
As the Pastor of this Cluster Parish I would like to invite you to be a part of our family and create with us a nice future of Jesus’ Church. As Catholics we need to be active in many ways showing others the love of God and worshipping Him for the glory of His name. As we look forward we want to create a nice future for our Christian Family. We are responsible for the next generation of our Catholic Church, so please pray for our children and youth and help them to build their lives according to Jesus’ teaching. As a Christian family we should approach the needs of others, so please help and pray for the sick, the less fortunate, the unemployed and all those in need.
Our goal is to open our hearts and love each other, show kindness, generosity, compassion and build Jesus’ Kingdom on earth. Be His witnesses of mercy and love.
May God bless you always and bestow on you many graces.
Father Edwin Montaña, Pastor
