Welcome to Our Community


We are one community of faith comprised of two parishes of the Archdiocese of Boston - Our Lady of the Assumption and St. Maria Goretti.  We serve Catholics in Lynnfield and the surounding areas of Peabody, Lynn, Saugus, and Wakefield.  Our parochial school provides an exemplary academic education combined with a strong faith foundation, preparing our students to excel in higher education, to be leaders in their communities, and to model their lives based on Catholic values.

Our Collaborative Purpose

The purpose of the Lynnfield Catholic Community is to welcome all in brotherly love, to build up the community of believers, and to lead all members to a deeper relationship with Christ our Savior.
