Welcome to Our Parish



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.
