Welcome to the Archdiocese of Boston. 

In his message marking the 49th World Communications Day in January 2015 (Communicating the Family: A Privileged Place of Encounter with the Gift of Love), Pope Francis writes that the most basic form of communication is prayer. 

We hope that by visiting this website, as well as following the Archdiocese on our various social media sites, you will learn about the many spiritual, beautiful and wonderful things happening in our local church. We hope this informs you on your spiritual journey with Jesus and that it helps in growing closer with our Mother Church.  Technology is a tremendous way to communicate and to share information.  It has made our world smaller but our means to communicate enormous.  It is important to keep prayer in your life even as technological advances change almost daily. 

Please know that you remain in my prayers daily as I ask that I am remembered in yours.  May God grant you and your loved one’s peace and the blessings of a faith filled life.
