Welcome!
Seán Cardinal O’MalleyReverend Kevin J. O'Leary

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!

This year, Pope Francis invites each of us to become “merciful like the Father” as part of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. As we journey together with Catholics around the world come, make a pilgrimage, pass through our Holy Door of Mercy and worship the Lord Jesus who tenderly loves each of us. May God bless you!

Important Upcoming Events
The Parish Community volunteers monthly at the Pine Street Inn. This opportunity affords everyone the opportunity to serve the residents and learn about the problems facing people living without a home in the community. Please join us on the upcoming dates: Tuesday 19 April; and Monday 30 May. Servers meet in at 4.30 pm at the Cathedral Rectory or 5.00 pm directly at the Pine Street Inn.
The Order of Malta Boston Auxiliary will lead Malta Walks on the following upcoming Wednesday evenings at 6.30 pm: 13 & 27 April, 11 & 25 May and 8 & 22 June. Participants go out from the Cathedral’s Deacon Rossa Room, distribute critical resources including food and clothes and, as Pope Francis challenges the Church, engage those who the program serves. Please meet in the Parish Hall and enter via the Union Park Street entrance.

Help Get Us to World Youth Day! A group of Youth and Young Adults from the Cathedral Parish need our support for their trip with 3 million young Catholics from around the world to see Pope Francis in Krakow. They will sell Easter Baskets, religious items and raffles after Sunday Masses downstairs or outside. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for the opportunity of a lifetime! Please direct all questions to Janet at 857-413-9697 or janet_gonzalez@live.com. More events will be coming as the pilgrimage approaches.
