Welcome to historic St. Paul's Catholic Church in Harvard Square!

OUR MISSION

Inspired by the witness of the early Christian communities, and under the patronage of St. Paul, our community of St. Paul’s Parish, Harvard Catholic Center and St. Paul’s Choir School seeks to grow together. We will invite more people to be drawn by God’s beauty, nourished by the truth of Christ, and strengthened to do every good work for others in the Lord. We strive to offer our gifts as mature disciples in mission radically reoriented to Christ, sustained by the Eucharist, and proclaiming the Good News of Christ and His Church to all we meet.

Our parish family extends past Harvard Square and the city of Boston to the suburbs and beyond!

Sacred music has always been an integral part of worship at St. Paul’s. The Saint Paul’s Choir School, the only Catholic boys' choir school in America, draws from the Church's treasury of traditional sacred music in service to the Liturgy at the 11am Mass each Sunday of the school term, as well as the 12:10pm Mass Tuesday through Friday.

The third component of St. Paul's Parish is the Harvard Catholic Center, the Catholic chaplaincy for undergraduate and graduate students at Harvard University and other academic institutions in the area.

We invite you to visit St. Paul’s when you are in the Cambridge area and to become part of our community of believers!
