    • Welcome

      If you are alienated or upset, we welcome you lovingly.
      If you are in need of forgiveness, Jesus forgives you completely—
           with unconditional love.
      If you have been hurt by the Church, we are truly sorry.
      If you are angry, Jesus offers you peace.
      If life has become burdensome, we are here to support you.
      We are happy you are here and want you to stay.
      We would like to share our lives with you.
      Come join us each week so we can worship God together. 

    • News & Events
      • St. Robert’s is responsible for meal preparation for the Bread & Roses Hospitality House in Lawrence once per month all year. It's as easy as dropping off a food donation when you come to Mass on the weekend! Our next meal collection weekend is April 19/20, which is Easter Sunday. Click on the title of this entry to learn what we need and when and where to drop it off.
      • "In the poor and outcast we see Christ’s face; by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ." —Pope Francis, Lenten Message 2014. Looking for ways to reach out to those in need? As you prepare for Easter, please remember that hunger and homelessness do not take a holiday. We could use your help to provide food—and company—for some of those most in need in our local community. Click on the title of this entry to find out how you can help.
      • The Saint Robert Bellarmine Council 10877 Knights of Columbus is pleased to announce a scholarship opportunity for parishioners, Knights, and their families. The Knights will sponsor one $500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior entering a Catholic college or university. The Knights of Columbus Father Francis O’Hare Memorial Scholarship is in honor of Father Frank’s years of service to our parish and its youth, and as chaplain of our Knights of Columbus council. Click on the title of this entry to download the application. Completed applications must be returned by May 1, 2014.
      • Does the Sacrament of Reconciliation make you nervous? You are not alone! In fact, this anxiety is so widespread it means most of us avoid it altogether, missing the opportunity to receive the grace and peace of God's loving embrace and forgiveness. Click on the title of this entry for some encouraging words from Pope Francis and stop by any church or chapel (including St. Robert's!) in the Archdiocese of Boston on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 pm. Feeling a little rusty on the process? The priest will help. Or visit www.thelightisonforyou.org for some answers to your questions and tips for preparing for the sacrament.
      • In August 2012, the Archdiocesan Pastoral Planning Commission (APPC) delivered its formal proposal to Cardinal Seán O’Malley for review. The proposal was accepted and the initiative, titled "Disciples in Mission," is now underway. For more information about the plan, including a blog to keep you up to date on progress, click on the title of this entry to go to the Archdiocesan "Disciples in Mission" website.
