Cardinal O’Malley has granted Fr. Tom a leave of absence to address some health issues. As a result, Fr. Tom’s assignment with the Saugus Catholics Collaborative will be concluding effective on September 1, 2020. Father came to us a little over a year ago, and quickly became an integral part of the team. Unfortunately, in light of restrictions caused by the pandemic, we cannot give him a true Saugus sendoff. But for anyone who would like to reach out to him with a card or a letter, we’re sure he would appreciate that. If you send along your best wishes to the Collaborative Office at 14 Summer Street, Saugus, MA 01906, we will forward them along to him.
