BREAKING NEWS:  Fr. Gerald Souza chosen to lead Our Lady of Fatima Parish!

With gratitude and joy, I am pleased to announce that Fr. Gerald Souza has been chosen to lead our community of faith beginning on June 1st.  Cardinal O'Malley has appointed a good and holy priest for us.   


A native of Plymouth, Fr Souza grew up in Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Parish where he first pictured himself as a priest.  He spent much time working at the seafood restaurant his family had on the town wharf.  After graduting from Sacred Heart High School in Kingston in 2004, he became a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Boston.  He attended Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia, graduated from the Franciscan University of Steubenville with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, and earned a Master of Divinity in Theology from Saint John's Seminary in Brighton, MA.  Fr. Souza was ordained to the priesthood by Cardinal Sean O'Malley on May 23, 2013.  After serving in the Billerica Catholic Collaborative as his first assignment, Fr. Souza moved to South Boston where he became parochial vicar to the parish collaborative of St. Monica-St.Augustine, St Peter, and St. Vincent de Paul. Fr. Souza enjoys returning to Plymouth to visit his family, which includes his parents, his brother, and his brother's family.  Fr. Souza appreciates being outside year-round—going to the beach, golfing poorly, running slowly in warmer months. and skiing in the colder months.  

 Fr. Souza has a great love for Christ, the Church, and the priesthood.  I am so honored to pass the leadership of our parish onto him. Thank you, in advance, for the very warm welcome you will extend to Fr. Souza.  He will be a great blessing to you and to our community.

Dear Friends, 

On April 19th, my six year term as pastor will conclude. At Cardinal O'Malley's request, on that date, I will become the Administrator of St. Mary's Parish in Winchester.   It has been a great joy and privilege to serve as your pastor.  You have shown great faith, hope, love and generosity.   I love you and will cherish our years together.  As I say often, "Every day as pastor of Our Lady of Fatima is a good day."  I am looking forward to the next two months with you and I am praying for God's blessing on the priest (not yet chosen) who will be so fortunate as to lead our amazing community of faith beginning on March 1st.  

Thank you for your love and prayers which have sustained me at Our Lady of Fatima and which I will need and count on as I move to St. Mary's.  Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.


Fr. Rich Erikson
