Pastoral Center Mission, Vision and Operating Principles


To continue the saving ministry of Jesus Christ, the Pastoral Center serves and guides the Catholic parishes, schools, hospitals and agencies within the 144 cities and towns of the Archdiocese of Boston.


In carrying out our mission, we seek to be compassionate professionals who are valued for our faith, service, and integrity.

Am I giving Glory and Honor to God?
Am I serving Christ and His Church?
Am I honoring and respecting those whom I serve and those with whom I serve?

These three questions are ultimately about mission and vision.   The mission of the Archdiocese of Boston is to carry on the ministry of Jesus Christ.  These three questions present a vision where we are ministering with glory, honor, service and respect.


We seek to give glory and honor to God and rebuild trust in Christ's Church, following the guidance of the Holy Father and Archbishop of Boston.

We challenge each other to make the most of the gifts God has given us and strive to recognize and reward excellent performance.

We treat each other and those whom we serve fairly, with dignity and with honor, holding ourselves accountable for our commitment to service.

We are dedicated to a culture of collaboration, innovation, and inspiration.
