Boston Home Resident Sees
Faith Grow with ARISE

“A group of eight residents here at The Boston Home had the opportunity in ARISE Together in Christ, to come together and explore the truth of what the Catholic Church teaches. Some of us needed to reconcile ourselves to that truth; all of us grew in embracing our faith. We learned to listen to God and to try and discern what he wants to do in us.”

Marilyn MacDonald is a resident at the Boston Home. She attended the Leader Workshops and completely organized and implemented the process there.

The Boston Home is a residence and care center for adults with advanced multiple sclerosis and other progressive neurological diseases and is located within the parish of St. Gregory the Great in Dorchester, MA. The ARISE Parish Team reached out to the Boston Home and suggested that they form an ARISE small community at the home. On Sunday April 25, the Boston Home group met with the parish ARISE community at St. Gregory’s for prayer, sharing and celebration.
