About

It is with joy that I welcome you to St. Matthew’s Dorchester & St. Angela’s Mattapan parish family websites.

Enjoy this Summer and the time you will spend with family, your children and friends at cookouts, picnics and several other Summer events. I warmly welcome you to our parish, if you are newly arrived for vacation or for a longer stay.

Both parishes together form an energetic multi-ethnic Catholic faith community where all are welcome to join us at our numerous weekday and Sunday Masses, liturgical, social and cultural parish events in English, Haitian Creole and French.

As the pastor of both parishes, I look forward to meeting you in person at one of our daily or weekend Eucharistic celebrations, or at other parish activities or social events. Let me know.

Located in southern Boston, St. Angela’s and St. Matthew’s are two adjacent multicultural parishes of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, Mass., USA. The Lord has blessed both parishes abundantly throughout these years.   They are under my pastorship for many years.

I am Father Bill Joy.
