Upcoming Events


Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at the Pastoral Center

Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament at the Pastoral Center is available after the 12:05pm celebration of the Mass until 2:45pm during the summer.  In the fall, Benediction will take place at 3:50pm.  Sustaining Eucharistic Adoration is part of the ministry provided by The Sister Disciples of the Divine Master.   In addition to this, the sisters make vestments in their workshop at the Pastoral Center, care for the linens used in Bethany chapel, and run the gift shop at the Pastoral Center.

Additionally, the sisters have run a Liturgical Center on West Street in Boston since 1969. They also provide pastoral services for priests at Regina Cleri. The Sister Disciples of the Divine Master was founded for Eucharistic Adoration, priestly and Liturgical service.  They pray for the needs of the Church and the Archdiocese and for vocations.

  •  Eucharistic Holy Hour and Rosary to Pray for Priests is held every 3rd Thursday of the Month from 2-3pm in Bethany Chapel at the Pastoral Center.  All are welcome!
