November is the month of the Faithful Departed


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


OUR COMING PLEDGE-PLAN FOR CHURCH SUPPORT FOR THE CHURCH'S YEAR OF GRACE, 2018

As we know the Church’s Liturgical Cycle begins anew each year with the First Sunday of Advent and follows its course to the Last Sunday after Pentecost (1962 Missal) and the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ King of the Universe (1970 Missal). I would like to work within that structure to introduce a Pledge-Plan for the support of our parish church. Specifically I would like to ask each parish household to consider what you might be able to do for the parish financially between the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady on December 8th, 2017 (the titular Mystery of Faith for our parish) and the Anniversary of the Dedication of the parish church of Mary Immaculate of Lourdes, Thanksgiving Day (November 22nd), 2018.

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).
