Welcome!

St Paul's Easter wide from loftWelcome to historic St. Paul Catholic Church in Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Our parish family extends past Harvard Square and the city of Boston to the suburbs and beyond!

Music has always been integral to worship at St. Paul’s, and the Saint Paul’s Choir School, the only Catholic boys’ choir school in America, provides for the church’s Choir of boys and men. This rare traditional Choir sings great Catholic music in service to the liturgy at the 11:00 a.m. Mass each Sunday of the school term, while one of the boys’ Choirs sings at the 12:10 p.m. Mass Tuesday through Friday, the Saturday 5:00 p.m. Vigil Mass, and Vespers at 5:15 p.m. each Wednesday.

The third component of St. Paul Parish is the Harvard Catholic Center, an active chaplaincy to undergraduates and graduate and professional students at Harvard University and other academic institutions in the area. A special Mass for students is held Sunday evenings at 5 p.m., and other liturgies are celebrated at the various Harvard graduate schools. Please see the links to Harvard Catholic websites.

I invite you to visit St. Paul’s when you are in the Cambridge area (a map is available) and to become part of our community of believers. Our website includes a parish calendar that will let you know of the various events taking place at St. Paul Parish.

Yours in Christ,
Rev. William Kelly

Pastor
