Regina Cleri is a home for retired priests in the Archdiocese of Boston.[1][2] It is located in Boston's West End.[1][2][3] It was established in December 1964 by Cardinal Richard Cushing to provide health care and support for senior priests of the Archdiocese.[3][2]

As of 2014, 56 priests lived there[2] and through its history to that point almost 400 had lived there.[3] A group of Sister Disciples of the Divine Master work at the home.[3] The executive director of the facility is Stephen J. Gust.[3]

A 50th anniversary celebration was attended by Cardinal Seán O'Malley and Mayor Marty Walsh.[2][3] Though the priests are officially retired, many continue to assist in parishes throughout the archdiocese.[3][1][2]
