Boston, Massachusetts: St. Anthony Shrine

About St. Anthony Shrine in Boston, Massachusetts:

Often called “the Church on Arch Street”, St. Anthony Shrine is directed by the Franciscan friars of Holy Name Province.

The central focus of the Shrine’s ministry has remained constant for 70+ years: providing a convenient and prayerful setting for people desiring to praise and worship our God – currently through 12 weekend and 27 weekday Masses, as well as an extensive schedule for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The Shrine also has over 30 outreach and evangelical ministries.

Inspired by the enduring legacy of St. Francis of Assisi, the friars and the lay people of the Shrine strive to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with all people.  In their preaching, prayers, adult formation, and spiritual counseling, they foster Christian discipleship “in the marketplace” by reaching out and welcoming people to deepen their relationship with God and with one another.

They have many ministries associated with the Shrine, including canonical marriage counseling, bereavement groups, homeless women’s health clinic, ministry for grieving parents, addiction recovery and more.

St. Anthony Shrine was instrumental in inaugurating a facility to serve the homeless in Boston. This facility is called St. Francis House.
