CORI Forms


It is that time of year! We ask all Collaborative volunteers, new and returning, to fill out a CORI. We appreciate the cooperation of all those required to complete the annual CORI and we particularly thank you for keeping the pledge to protect those among us who are most vulnerable. To fill out a CORI, please stop by the Collaborative Office (St. Mary’s Rectory) Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 3:00pm, or Sacred Heart Rectory on Thursdays from 9:00am to 12:00pm. Please call the Office if you have questions or need help filling out a CORI Form.



Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Do you know any adults who may be thinking about becoming a Catholic or completing their sacraments? Lynn Catholic Collaborative offers a welcoming, gentle and prayer-filled path to a (deeper) relationship with Jesus and to full-fledged membership in the Catholic Church. So that they can find out more about this process (which is known as the RCIA), please urge them to speak to one of our pastoral staff or to call the Collaborative Office at 781-598-4907 or Admin@LynnCatholic.org. Although the RCIA is an on-going process, we will be meeting formally later in the fall. Now is a good time for you to let us know of possible candidates for RCIA.

and friends who yearn to help us.
