Parish Life Welcome

Who We Are!





Who We Are!

We are a faith community of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston located in Waltham, Massachusetts.  Our name comes from the original mission of our parish which was to serve the many hospitals and retirement homes in Waltham and that mission dedicated to the Blessed Mother, Our Lady Comforter of the Afflicted.  Although many of those hospitals and homes no longer exist, our mission remains the same and that is to bring the living message of the Gospel to the faithful in today’s world. This is the link to our parish history.
This message of the Gospel, our Catholic faith, is based on Christ’s encompassing presence in our individual life.  In turn, the collective life of our parish reflects this most important and basic cornerstone of our faith to help us exist, grow and learn as followers of Christ. 

Centered upon celebration of the Eucharist, our parish life is vibrant, active, diverse and welcoming. We gather in prayer, celebrate the sacraments, educate our youth, offer our time and talents to promote social justice, and foster community and fellowship all in Christ’s name.

Please navigate through this website to learn more about our parish, including the celebration of the sacraments, our school, religious education program, music ministries, and liturgical ministries.
