Archdiocese considers plan to group parishes, share resources

SOMERVILLE — At 33, the Rev. Jason Worthley is one of the youngest priests in the Archdiocese of Boston, ordained eight years ago as part of a group of men he fondly calls “the magnificent seven.”

He’s now one of two priests assigned to three Somerville parishes — St. Catherine of Genoa, St. Ann, and St. Joseph. Worthley and his pastor, the Rev. Brian McHugh, started at St. Joseph last month after the retirement of the Rev. Henry Jennings, 81, a priest at the church for 46 years.
