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.

Calling All Young Adults

If you have not yet completed the South Boston Catholic Young Adult Commission’s survey, then you may do so here: https://goo.gl/forms/C8Ob7ClFrt4uRttC3

The data gleaned from this survey is very helpful to the YAC as it plans events and opportunities for South Boston’s Catholic young adults.

The members of the YAC look forward to getting to know each young adult in Catholic South Boston as, together, we grow in our faith and become closer to Jesus Christ. 

If you have any questions, then please be in touch with Fr. Tom by calling him at (774) 364-0567 or emailing him at tmajorsolson@gmail.com
