More About Our Parish

Saint Mark ChurchSaint Mark Parish is located within  a mile  of Ashmont Train Station and Adam Street section of Dorchester, Massachusetts. Dorchester is a working-class neighborhood of Boston, Massachusetts, Boston is the capital city. Saint Mark is a Roman Catholic Church, and we are handicapped accessible.

 

2nd St. Mark            1st St. Mark

 

It was in December 1905 that Archbishop John J. Williams asked the Rev. John A. Daly to take up duties as the first pastor of a parish on Dorchester Avenue just north of Ashmont that had been until that time a chapel of St. Gregory’s Parish in Lower Mills.  Rev. Daly took to his duties with dispatch and energy, remaining the pastor for 39 years until his death in 1944.

Among the prominent members of the new parish was soon-to-be Boston Mayor John F. “Honey-Fitz” Fitzgerald, who had settled his family on Welles Avenue.  His daughter Rose taught Sunday School in the parish before marrying Joseph P. Kennedy to begin her own family, one that would come to include a President of the United States, three United States Senators, and one United States Attorney General.
