The 2020 Timothy “Doc” Cook Scholarship Awards

2020-06-22T08:14:43-04:00June 22nd, 2020|Categories: Education, Featured|Comments Off on The 2020 Timothy “Doc” Cook Scholarship Awards

The Timothy “Doc” Cook Foundation’s Scholarship Awards ceremony was conducted on Saturday afternoon.  The gathering took place on Dorchester Heights in brilliant sunshine, cool early June weather, and at the top of the City of Boston’s highest natural elevation.  It was a perfect day to salute the memory of an outstanding American military man – a man who volunteered for the Marines and served on combat duty in Iraq as a Medical Corpsman.  And of course, those attending the Awards took COVID-19 precautions, especially face coverage and social distancing. The Cook Awards are actually educational scholarships.  Led by Joe Cook (Tim’s father), they were presented to 12 deserving young scholars last weekend, which is a commendable increase from the three or four scholarships when these [...]

By: Tara Kerrigan Hayes   While many are aware of the challenges facing todays churches, (from limited parishioners to closings as a result of financial hardships, structural dangers, and more), not enough is said about the extraordinary efforts and good works of those determined to rise to those challenges by continuing to offer the community a safe place to gather, worship, nurture and even nourish.  Formed by the Archdiocese of Boston in 2015, the South Boston Seaport Catholic Collaborative (SBSCC) serves four catholic communities: St. Peter, St. Monica-St. Augustine, St. Vincent, and Our Lady of Good Voyage.  For covering such a vast area (Old Colony, West Broadway, Fort Point and the Seaport), the SBSCC is managing to do a remarkable job catering to the ever-growing [...]

The Fate of St. Brendan / St. Ann: “Let Us Gather, Not Scatter”

2019-01-25T11:23:08-05:00January 25th, 2019|Categories: Education|Comments Off on The Fate of St. Brendan / St. Ann: “Let Us Gather, Not Scatter”

By: Tara Kerrigan Hayes   When Rev. Brian Clary and Rev. Bob Connors arrived at The Collaborative of St. Brendan / St. Ann in June of 2018, they inherited a litany of challenges, from structural problems of deferred maintenance in upwards of 2 million dollars, to a $750,000 combined debt to the Archdiocese, as well as a dwindling number of parishioners. Then there was, of course, the stigma of the past. The Dorchester churches are not alone in diving attendee numbers considering the growing number of the nondenominational these days, as well as a demographic shift as more families move out of neighborhoods. It was, however, hit hard by the sex abuse crisis of 2002, which continues to haunt. Considering these two particular parishes were [...]
