Welcome to Saint Cecilia

If you are looking for a faith community where you can discover God through worship, community, and the service of others, you’re in the right place.

Established in 1888 and located in the heart of Boston, Saint Cecilia Parish is a vibrant, progressive Catholic community. We foster strong lay leadership and are blessed with members who generously give of their time, talent, and treasure to help shape our shared life. 

At Saint Cecilia, we value diversity and strive to learn from one another. Composed of all ages and backgrounds, our community includes those in the pews and those participating virtually around the world. Grandparents, single and married adults, young families, teenagers, and college students gather together with a common commitment to the gospel message of Christian love, social justice, and radical hospitality. We are an LGBTQ+ affirming church that seeks to be a spiritual home for all people, wherever they are on their spiritual journey. 

If you’d like to help shape our warm and progressive faith community, we welcome you to join us for worship and Sunday hospitality. Be yourself—there is room here for the individual, the activist, the thinker, and the questioner. At Saint Cecilia, we have a story to tell and welcome you to add to that story. We will be gifted by your presence.
