Our Pastoral Plan

Click here to register for the Pastoral Plan Information Night on November 6 at St. Ann.

Comprised of two parishes, Holy Redeemer in Merrimac and West Newbury, and Immaculate Conception in Newbury and Newburyport, the Holy Redeemer-Immaculate Conception (HRIC) Collaborative was formed by the Archdiocese in 2015 to help us better meet the needs of our people in a time of shifting resources. Geographically, the reach of the Collaborative spans over 65 square miles, which are all connected by the waters that flow in and around the communities it serves.

Our strong sense of community is built on our common missions of faith, service, discipleship, and social engagement. It binds us together as our boundaries extend beyond the Collaborative. We share joys and sorrows, prayer and fellowship as we continue our journey of faith.

This love and compassion, in the spirit of the greatest Commandment, form the cornerstone of the mission of our parishes and our evolving Collaborative. We meet people where they are. We minister to personal needs in personal ways. We tend to the body, mind, heart, and spirit of the souls of those whom God has called us to serve. We encounter Jesus in them and, we hope, they in us.

We are very pleased to share with you our newly-approved Local Pastoral Plan. In the months ahead, we will be inviting you to participate in the many new and exciting initiatives that our Plan envisions. It is my hope that every parishioner will find a way to get involved in at least one new activity and outreach. I am confident that many blessings will come from these efforts!

Join us! All are welcome.

Yours in Christ,

Father Timothy Harrison, Pastor
