St. Stephens Church

Built in 1714 as the humble New North Meeting House (hence Christ Church's designation as New North upon its completion nine years later), it was transformed in 1802-04 into an Italian Renaissance-style showpiece by Boston architect Charles Bulfinch. The bell was cast by Paul Revere.






To accommodate the North End's worshipful Irish immigrants, it was switched from Unitarian to Catholic and renamed St. Stephen's in 1862. Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy, mother of the US President, was baptized here 28 years later; her funeral service was also held here in 1995.
