June is the month of Sacred Heart of Jesus


Welcome


Welcome to our Parish, a canonically open parish of the Archdiocese of Boston. 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 are always glad to welcome Sunday visitors to our beautiful, historic church.
We invite you to register with us.

Pastor's Note


SEVEN GOOD HABITS OF PARISH STEWARDSHIP

As I announced here in last Sunday’s bulletin: the place of Mary Immaculate of Lourdes in the archdiocesan reconfiguration plan is officially a “stand-alone” parish. We will not be joined to another parish in a collaborative when the eleventh and final phase of the plan is implemented in 2023. Instead, we will be able to continue as we have been since Mary Immaculate of Lourdes was declared a “mission parish” with a special apostolate to the traditional Latin Mass in 2007. Cardinal Seán has seen fit to confirm his earlier pastoral plan for us within the structure of the current archdiocesan-wide “Disciples in Mission” plan.

Parish Mission Statement

"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." - Blessed Pope Paul VI, reigned 1964-1978


About Our Parish

Mary Immaculate of Lourdes is Newton and Needham Massachusetts's oldest Roman Catholic Parish. Founded as Saint Mary's Parish in 1870 it was renamed "Mary Immaculate of Lourdes" when the new Church was dedicated on Thanksgiving Day, 1910. In addition to being a regular territorial parish of the Archdiocese of Boston it is also a "Mission Parish" since 2007 with a special apostolate for the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal).
