Cathedral Clearance Bazaar

In preparation for our upcoming renovations, and in collaboration with the Diocesan Archives, the Cathedral is holding a “Clearance Bazaar” to clear the renovation space and make room for storage. Items include furniture, vestments, liturgical linens, vessels, hymnals, and more. Everything must go, and is free of charge! Please come prepared to take away items with you (special arrangements may be necessary for larger pieces such as furniture).
For more info. contact Ethel Crawford at 617-482-5800 x221
Our Nautilus in the media!
The Huffington Post has picked up the internet discussion about the nautilus sculpture in the Cathedral pediment and turned it into an article on their site. In addition to catalyzing a fascinating conversation about religious symbolism, they've included a link to our video which highlights not just the pediment but our ministry. In the final analysis, what really matters isn't the art but our actions, how we witness the Gospel.

The Cathedral selected artist Donald Lipski to finish the Cathedral's pediment. Read more about the project and the history here. Also, read an extensive review of the new Cathedral pediment design from "The Living Church,” a national publication.
"The kingdom of heaven, we are repeatedly told, is not trumpets and gongs and shafts of light but something far stealthier and lower to the ground, something-like yeast in the dough-whose presence may only be detectable in the sharpening, animating effect it has upon the ordinary elements of life. Something, perhaps, like a bunch of pilgrim writers showing up at a bookstore in Brookline and delivering a tight programme of readings to a quaking, sniffing, chuckling, gasping and finally standing-on-its-feet-applauding audience"...James Parker, Editor

Many Angels Needed Now and Always (MANNA)
We partner with four suburban churches whose volunteers work with our Leadership Team and staff to make and serve hot, nutritious meals to 150-175 members of the homeless community each week at our Monday Lunch Program. MANNA is much more than a meal. It is nutrition for the body in the form of healthy food, but also nutrition for the soul through a community forged across differences with love, respect, and welcome.
