Welcome to the Cathedral of the Holy Cross, a spiritual home for millions of Catholics in New England. Scroll down and explore the many beautiful ways God works in our community and visit us in the South End!

We glorify God by being peace makers, by being people of reconciliation and mercy. We all have opportunities to be peace makers in a world where there are so many divisions, so many tensions, so many conflicting interests. As we journey together with Christians around the world, Jesus invites you and me to become a seeker and become the best version of ourselves. May God bless you!

Seán Cardinal O’Malley, OFM Cap. | Very Reverend Kevin J. O’Leary, Rector
