Welcome to St. Mary’s of the Hills
in Milton, MA
Welcome to St. Mary of the Hills Parish, a Roman Catholic Church and School (Grades pre-k through 8) nestled close to the Blue Hills in Milton, Massachusetts. We hope that our website provides you with the information you need to nurture and support your faith here in the parish and beyond.
If you are new to the parish, we extend a special welcome to you and pray that you will find a warm home here. Please introduce yourself to one of the priests after Mass or stop by the Rectory. If you would like to register, you will find the form you need here.
We invite all our parishioners to join fully in our life at St. Mary’s. We serve the community through worship, outreach, education, social activities, sacramental preparation, and comfort to the sick and those who mourn. Feel free to contact us if we may be of service to you in any way.
The Roman Catholic Parish of St. Mary of the Hills, founded in 1931, is an archdiocesan parish located just south of Boston in Milton, MA. The parish is a multi-ethnic, socially, culturally, and educationally diverse faith community.
In 1931 to accommodate and serve the increasing number of Catholics in the Milton area, a new parish was established at the directive of William Cardinal O’Connell, Archbishop of Boston. The name St. Mary of the Hills was suggested by the sister of the first pastor, Rev. Richard S. Millard, due to the proximity of the Blue Hills. The name was adopted by an early meeting of parishioners by a vote of 379-I, although it is not known who cast the lone dissenting vote.
The first Masses were celebrated in Blue Hills Hall until the parish completed and paid for a basement church by 1934. Through vigorous fundraising and the generosity of parishioners, the parish built the rectory in 1935 and dedicated the upper church in 1949. A 16-room school and convent were added in 1958. Now approaching 1,000 families and under the stewardship of its seventh pastor, Rev. Arthur F. Wright, St. Mary of the Hills continues to thrive and grow in both size and diversity.
