Our Mission

The Harvard Catholic Center invites the greater Harvard community to grow in a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ through Catholic worship, inquiry, prayer, and service, forming disciples who use their gifts for the flourishing of the Church and the world.


Serving as the Roman Catholic chaplaincy for Harvard University since 1893, we are located on the outskirts of Harvard Square in the historic St. Paul’s Parish. Undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff, families, and alumni from across the globe are all members of our vibrant community. We welcome you to explore everything we have to offer and how you can get involved!
