Welcome to our Parishes' Website!

We are two Roman Catholic Parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston working together to serve South Boston. We are an urban, multi-ethnic, socially, culturally, and educationally diverse faith community. Our roots are deep: Gate of Heaven Parish was established in 1863 and St. Brigid Parish was established in 1908.

Deeply committed to Jesus Christ, we endeavor to grow as a community of faith, worship, and service. We strive to be a warm, welcoming and caring parish in which the gifts and talents of all, young and old, are recognized and graciously used to nourish others.

We invite you to join us at Mass this weekend and become a part of our parish family.
