Serving Boston's West End, Beacon Hill and North Station Communities

St. Joseph Parish


Welcome to the web pages of Saint Joseph Parish serving the historic West End and Beacon Hill neighborhoods of the great city of Boston. Saint Joseph Parish provides so much to so many, all by the grace and life of God our Father and in the name of His Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Our beautiful and reverent celebration of the Mass is made more so by the faithful and active participation of all present. Both the daily and Sunday celebration of the Mass provides an oasis of grace and faith for not only parishioners but for those who work in the city and for those tourists who may be traveling from other parts of the world.  It is through the Eucharist that we can accomplish the other works of service and mercy that so define our Catholic tradition. Each day, through the grace of Christ we try to build this holy place of Saint Joseph into a monument of what it means to be prayerfully and generously worthy of the promises of Christ- all in the middle of a public square often alive with voices calling folks elsewhere. As you navigate through these pages, please know that all at Saint Joseph Parish welcome you and pray for you daily.

Again this year we collect soup and ice cream sundae supplies as our outreach connection for Super Bowl Sunday Feb 3. Superbowl 2018 the Eagles defeated the Patriots 41-33. Again this year, Americans will spend over $15 billion or an average of $88 per person on food. Let us here at St Joseph make a field goal of contributing 53 or more cans of soup to our local food pantry. Bring soup to any Mass and place in our food drive baskets. Supplies for ice cream sundaes are an added plus.
