Our new pediment was installed on May 8th!
Click here to read Dean Streit's remarks on the event!
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.
Our Dean with the Nautilus as it was being installed on the pediment.
"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.
The MANNA Book Group's LIBRARY
Now officially open in the Church office lobby! The "microlibrary" is filled with books donated by many friends and congregants to our Cathedral. All are welcome to borrow a book, or donate one that is worth reading!
The library hours are Mondays and Tuesdays from 9:00am to 2:00pm.
