There are times when people are unable to receive the Body and Blood of Christ, through illness or due to their personal disposition. Even though some may not receive 'sacramental' Communion, all are united in some way by the Holy Spirit. The traditional idea of 'spiritual' Communion is an important one to reaffirm. A deep spiritual communion is possible even when we do not share together the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ. 

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in this Holy Sacrament of the altar. I love you above all things and I passionately desire to receive you into my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come spiritually into my soul so that I may unite myself wholly to you now and forever.


--based on a prayer of St. Alphonsus Liguori



We are two Roman Catholic Parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston working together to serve South Boston. We are an urban, multi-ethnic, socially, culturally, and educationally diverse faith community.

Our roots are deep: Gate of Heaven Parish was established in 1863 and St. Brigid Parish was established in 1908.

Deeply committed to Jesus Christ, we endeavor to grow as a community of faith, worship, and service. We strive to be a warm, welcoming and caring parish in which the gifts and talents of all, young and old, are recognized and graciously used to nourish others. We invite you to join us at Mass this weekend and become a part of our parish family.
