IPC Senior Outreach Program aims to reduce social isolation and maintain a community network of friendship and support.


The program began when two elderly Irish citizens died alone. The IPC responded immediately to reduce isolation. In an effort to assist in positive and healthy aging, we offer the following programs:


The IPC hosts three weekly café’s:

  • Our Cara Club meets on Monday’s at the Veronica Smith Centre in Brighton from 1pm to 3pm

  • Café Eireann meets every Wednesday at Ashmont Church in Dorchester from 1pm – 3pm

  • Crossroads Café meets every Thursday at St John’s Chrysanthemum Church in West Roxbury from 1pm – 3pm.


All café’s host fun events like Bingo, Yoga, Trivia and Music and all are welcome!


IP Senior program also offers:

  • Weekly check-in phone calls

  • Weekly Zoom Bingo

  • Laughing Yoga (Zoom)

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.
