 A Message From Our Pastor, Father James M. DiPerri

Welcome to the Church web site of Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted Parish.  We invite you also to view our School web site.  On both you will find updates and information on the many activities offered at Church and School.  We are a vibrant, faith-filled community, striving together to live our Catholic Faith in fidelity and love.

It is a great privilege for me to serve as pastor of Our Lady’s Parish, which serves the people of Waltham/Lexington as well as others who make this their parish of choice.  This year I celebrate 30 years in the priesthood.  I love being a priest, trying my best to serve God and His people.  More than 1,000 people worship here weekly.  Together we praise the One God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, as we also ask for the blessings of Mary, our Mother, the Angels and the Saints.  Our Catholic Faith, comes from Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and extends through centuries of belief, empowered by the Holy Spirit.  Together, we journey as pilgrims on earth with fellow believers throughout the world.  We welcome all visitors, new parishioners, and those interested in joining or becoming more active in the Catholic Church.

Our parish school, Our Lady’s Academy currently enrolls over 300 children.  Our religious education program serves an additional 300 children from the public school system.  Our school and religious education program are a joy and a blessing to me.  I regularly join the faculty and religious education volunteers in teaching the students in scheduled conferences.  Students join me in the celebration of Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and the Sacrament of Penance/Reconciliation. Our Lady’s Parish also offers a host of outreach programs to the homebound and those in need.  The parish is blessed with nearly 400 volunteers in various liturgical, social and charitable works, working together with a dedicated church staff and an accomplished school administration and faculty.

Our Parish offers many opportunities for deeper and appropriate involvement.  Kindly take the time to fill out a Registration Form if you wish to become a registered member of the parish community.  The weekly bulletin and this web site are the best sources of information about parish activities, religious education, and various ministries.  We invite you to join us as we strive to work together in faith to build up the Church and celebrate the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.

God bless you and your families.

Father DiPerri, Pastor
