Beautiful murals, pillars, statues and alter. Wonderful sounding organ. We went to Easter mass here and the choir music was fantastic. Not sure if the choir sings at every mass (as we were visiting from CA). Worth stopping in to take a look if you...More

We recently attended a caroling service at St. Paul's. Normally this service, with the Harvard Choir, is held at Memorial Hall on the Harvard campus, but currently that is under renovation. The Parish of St. Paul church was an excellent alternative site for this service,...More

You really have to attend a Sunday 11 am Mass during the school year in order to really experience the best worship with music that exists in this country. The Choir School is the only Catholic choir school in the United States.

Located in the heart of Harvard Square, this beautiful old church has the feel of a cathedral. Great for a quick visit or attend a service. Masses: Saturday @ 5:00 PM, Sunday @ 7:30, 9:30 or 11:00 AM. Be sure to see the pipe organ.

A little-known secret in Harvard Square is that every weekday except Monday during the school year, an amazing boy's choir performs at 12:10pm at St. Paul's Church. It's a wonderfully uplifting lunchtime break. It is a church service, but respectful visitors are more than welcome...More
