Welcome!

Architecture has always been an expression of life, the medium by which people have recorded their emotions, aspirations and their beliefs. Like the centuries old monuments of the pyramids to the great cathedrals of Europe from the medieval era, Saint Hedwig Church stands as a monument to the faith and accomplishments of the Catholic people of Southbridge, particularly those Polish immigrants and their descendants of the 20th Century. Thus, today’s Catholics inherit the proud legacy of these early Catholic pioneers who for their appreciation of their religious faith, love and beauty have left us Saint Hedwig Church.

Saint Hedwig Church belongs to Saint John Paul II Parish in Southbridge. Saint John Paul II Parish was created on July 1, 2011 by the Most Reverent Robert J. McManus, Bishop of Worcester from the pre-existing Catholic parishes of Southbridge. Saint Hedwig Church is one of three churches that the parish uses for its divine worship. This brochure is to help orient a visitor to this magnificent house of worship and invite you to join us for worship.
