A designated Boston Historical Landmark, the basilica was erected between 1876 and 1878 followed by tower additions in 1910. The building was designated a basilica by Pope Pius XII in 1954. This massive, Romanesque Revival church is constructed of locally quarried Roxbury Puddingstone and Quincy granite. The Church has become a symbol of the Mission Hill neighborhood and a political and cultural icon,  attended by various members of the Kennedy family. The rich history of the parish extends over 140 years, founded upon the aspirations of early German and Irish immigrants. Today the church hosts a diverse group of congregants and visitors.
