The Pastoral Ministry Program provides outreach and support for immigrants who are home-bound, incarcerated, grieving, or in need of referrals for counseling. IPC staff supports and advocates for the rights of long-term prisoners and short-term detainees awaiting trial and deportation primarily due to circumstances surrounding their undocumented status. Prisoners and detainees are at high risk for depression and suicide, and clients receive personal visits, legal assistance, and compassionate counseling.

The Irish Pastoral Centre was founded in 1987 in response to a large increase in the number of Irish immigrants to the Greater Boston area. The IPC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is funded in part by the Irish government in addition to donations from the Irish/Irish American Community.
