Holy Family Parish's new leadership team is now in place.
St. Ann's Church, flagship for the unified Cape Ann Roman Catholic parish, hosted a celebratory Mass Saturday to officially mark the installation of Father John Kiley as its new pastor.
The Mass and ceremony served as a welcoming for the parish's new associate pastor, the Rev. Matthew Green, as well.
The installation completes the process that began when Rev. Kiley was named to the pastor's position earlier this summer by Archdiocese of Boston Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley.
And Kiley, who had previously served as pastor for eight years at Our Lady of Good Hope parish in Ipswich, is quickly diving into his new role.
After holding some "listening sessions" for parishioners in a few homes over the summer, Kiley hosted another such program Sunday in the St. Ann Church hall, will host another one tonight beginning at 7 p.m. at Joachim Church in Rockport, and will hold another one back at the St. Ann Church Hall next Monday — Sept. 26 — again at 7 p.m.
