Welcome to Saint Paul’s Choir School

Since 1963, Saint Paul’s Choir School – the only Catholic boys choir school in the United States – has formed and educated boys in grades four through eight in the rich music tradition of the Roman Catholic Church, uniting a rigorous musical and academic curriculum with our Catholic faith and moral tradition.

Welcome, Father William Kelly!

Father William Kelly officially assumed his new assignment at St. Paul’s on April 25th. Fr. Kelly is a Choir School alum, and he returns to Harvard Square as head of the school, senior chaplain of the Harvard Catholic Center, and pastor of the Parish of St. Paul. Father Kelly was most recently pastor of St. Mary’s in Dedham. The St. Paul’s community extends a warm welcome to our new pastor!

 “Music (is) capable of opening minds and hearts to the dimension of the spirit and of leading persons to raise their gaze on High, to open to absolute Goodness and Beauty, which have their ultimate source in God.”

Pope-Emeritus Benedict XVI
