Father Liias will celebrate his last Mass as our Pastor on Sunday October 16th; although Bishop Lopes is committed to the survival and growth of Saint Gregory the Great he has determined it is not possible at this time to send a Priest to replace Father Liias. Bishop Lopes has therefore arranged for our old friend and benefactor Father Richard Bradford of the Congregation of Saint Athanasius to provide our community with Sacramental services during this period. Beginning Sunday October 23rd and continuing for an unknown period the community of Saint Gregory the Great will join Father Bradford’s congregation for Mass at 11:30 in the morning at Saint Lawrence’s church, 774 Boylston Street Chestnut Hill, MA 02467.

We are a joyfully Catholic community bringing the riches of our Anglican tradition of worship with us into the Church as envisioned by Pope Benedict XVI in his Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum coetibus. We are part of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter, the structure established in the United States and Canada for Episcopalians, Anglicans, and other Protestants wishing to enter into communion with Rome. Our Pastor, Father Jürgen Liias – an Episcopal priest for 40 years – was ordained in the Catholic Church in April 2013. You do not have to have had any association with Anglicanism to attend our Masses; all are most welcome to share in our life and fellowship. Learn more about us on these pages, and then please join us as we worship in the Beauty of Holiness and the power of the Spirit!
