Father James Anthony Walsh, M.M.

Boston’s Gift to Mission

In celebration of the Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers’ Centenary, we explore their origins in Boston with co-founder Father James Anthony Walsh. We also witness the work of the city’s modern-day successors in mission effort … amon them the Society for the Propagation of Faith, which Walsh led in the early 1900s … St. John’s Seminary where he studied … the city’s Catholic Charities … and Boston Healthcare for the Homeless
