Welcome, New Parishioners and Sunday Visitors

Mary Immaculate of Lourdes Parish is a canonically open parish of the Archdiocese of Boston, which has a Traditional Latin Mass apostolate.  Both the ordinary form of the Roman Rite (1970 Missal) and the extraordinary form (1962 Missal) are celebrated here with the blessing of His Eminence Sean Cardinal O’Malley, Archbishop of Boston. We encourage new parishioners to please register in the parish and to introduce yourselves to the Pastor. We are always glad to welcome Sunday visitors here to our beautiful historic church.  We look forward to your coming again.

Mary Immaculate of Lourdes is located at 270 Elliot Street in Newton, Massachusetts.  For Mass Times, please refer to the latest parish bulletin or the parish page at bostoncatholic.org.

Parish Mission Statement

Mary Immaculate of Lourdes
Mary Immaculate of Lourdes Parish Church

“What then is a parish? It is the smallest section of the one universal flock which has been entrusted to Peter by the Lord. Under the authority of a responsible priest who has received the care of souls from his bishop, the parish is, within the Church of Jesus Christ, the first community of Christian life; it is a community cut to human dimensions, in which the shepherd can know his flock and the flock can know their shepherd … At the heart of this area, we find the parish church with its bell-tower, its baptistery, its confessional, its altar and tabernacle, a symbol of unity and the centre of community life.”

Pope Paul VI
