Providing A Wide Range Of Outreach Services, St. Anthony Shrine Is One Of Boston's Leading Franciscan Centers

St. Anthony Shrine, the “Church on Arch Street,” is a center for Roman Catholic ministry in Boston, Mass., directed by the Franciscan friars of Holy Name Province.

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. The Shrine serves as instruments of God's healing through daily celebrations of the Eucharist and the sacrament of reconciliation.

In the Shrine's preaching, prayers, adult formation, and spiritual counseling, it fosters Christian discipleship "in the marketplace" by reaching out and welcoming people to deepen their relationship with God and with one another.
