St. Joseph Catholic Church is a Roman Catholic church serving Beacon Hill and the West End in Boston, Massachusetts. Designed by Alexander Parris and built in 1834 for the Twelfth Congregational Society, it was purchased by the Boston Roman Catholic Diocese in 1862.
The first recorded Mass in the neighborhood was on March 17, 1732, in a private home near the current site of this church. Represented by the many decorative fleur-de-lis inside, the first Catholic Mass legislatively sanctioned and celebrated in New England was celebrated nearby by Father de la Porterie in 1788.
