Last fall, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston announced a plan that would see local churches pool resources and on Monday the next step in that plan was released. 

A list of pastors for the 21 "Phase Two" collaborative parishes was made public on Monday, with current St. Catherine's pastor, Rev. Peter Quinn, keeping his post in a new collaborative parish that will be joined with Littleton's St. Anne Church. 

“We are blessed by the dedication of the priests, parishioners and the deacons and religious who are working together to strengthen our parishes," said Cardinal Sean O'Malley. "I am grateful for the generosity of these pastors as they accept the call to lead the new collaboratives, advancing the mission of evangelization in the Archdiocese of Boston.”

In an announcement on the St. Catherine's website, Fr. Peter will officially begin his role as the pastor of the collaborative parish on June 3, 2014; with Fr. Richard Casey continuing to run St. Anne's until that point. 

More information on the reorganization, called "Disciples in Mission - A Pastoral Plan for the Archdiocese of Boston" can be found on within its own page on the Archdiocese website
