Keep Father Joseph Rossi at St. Pius V

This petition has been created to let the Archdiocese of Boston know that we want Father Joseph Rossi to stay at St Pius V Parish, Lynn, MA. We understand the need for such a leader in the South Shore community, however, Father Joe has been with us for 14 years. We, the people of the parish, are requesting that he be allowed to stay with us permanently. We respectfully request that the Archdiocese of Boston send the new Pastor that is supposed to replace Father Joe, to the South Shore instead.

  • Catherine MacIsaac Father Rossi has been a family friend of ours for a long time. I am 13 and have known him my whole life. My grandparents were parishioners at St Pius for as long as anyone can remember. When my Papa died, he said the kindest words about him. My grandparents were like parents to him. He was transferred soon after my Papa passed away and none of us are over it. I remember how distraught I was at the funeral and he told me to keep hanging in there, that meant the world to me. Father Rossi made St Pius, he didn't just teach us about God, he taught us about family and about how a church is a community of individuals who all can reach out and help each other. Bring Father Rossi back to St Pius please!!

  • Tim Donnelly I have a similar petition attempting to return Mr. Ed Fee to his position of music director at Our Lady of the Assumption in Lynnfield (a position he held for 30 years), after he was let go due to the new collaborative forming between Our Lady's and St. Maria Gorettis. What happened to Fr. Rossi in Weymouth? He is no longer pastor there. He said my grandmother's funeral mass in 2001 and did an excellent job. I know he was well loved at St. Pius
