Become a part of our mission
We are Boston’s Basilica. A Community of Faith.
The Basilica is a diverse community that strives to nurture a strong, open, and inclusive congregation. Our communal worship is the heart of the parish, the center of our life, our first school of spirituality, and the source from which our power flows. We reach out to the needy, near and far, through personal service and tithing of ordinary parish income. Our doors are open to welcome and support all cultures and people who are in need of spiritual, emotional, or physical healing. We seek to stand in solidarity with the poor and to work for social justice and peace.
It is a time honored Catholic tradition to have Masses said in honor of a particular person and to provide Mass Cards to comfort relatives, friends and loved ones.Buy Now »
