Catholic Appeal 2021 Launches
The Archdiocese of Boston has launched this year’s Catholic Appeal. Each of us is called to care for the wellbeing of our parish and also for the wellbeing of the wider Church. The Catholic Appeal funds the 51 Central Ministries of the archdiocese. Our Cathedral parish’s goal is set at $60,455. If you haven’t yet participated this year, we invite you to prayerfully consider making a gift or a pledge of your future gift online by visiting BostonCatholicAppeal.org. Thank you.
90-Days Now Campaign
The desire to take care of one another during the unprecedented challenges of COVID-19 has inspired a grassroots movement for parishioners to rally around their local parishes. “90 Days Now – For Your Parish” is a newly launched three-month campaign spearheaded by a member of the laity to help support parishes during these difficult times.
This 90-day program offers support now by providing a way to make a daily commitment that will go directly into their parish’s savings account and will be promptly available for their parish’s needs. Make your commitment online via BostonCatholic.org.
During this time of precaution, those who are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, who have been exposed to those with COVID-19, those recently arrived from out-of-state, and those in vulnerable populations are asked to refrain from entering the Cathedral for the safety of all God’s people. We encourage you to unite yourself in prayer by praying with our Masses available online. Daily and Sunday Masses are available on the Cathedral Facebook Page. Sunday Masses are available through CatholicTV at WatchTheMass.com. The faithful from our Latin Mass community can follow Masses offered daily in the Extraordinary Form by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) at LiveMass.net
Three pillars guide our practices as Catholics during the season of Lent: Prayer, Fasting, and Almsgiving. For the guidelines of how we live out those pillars in practical ways, see our primer on “How to Lent” via Twitter.
Sunday Masses continue in-person and via streaming online. See our Mass Times page for a full schedule of weekend Masses in English, Spanish, Latin (EF), and Ethiopian-Eritrean Rite.
Reservations in advance are required to attend in-person: click here to make a reservation. Watch daily and Sunday Masses streamed from our Cathedral Facebook Page.
We are pleased to resume the Cathedral’s previous daily Mass schedule and welcome in-person attendance for these Masses. The daily Mass schedule now is:
» Monday – Saturday: 9 a.m. — Mass in English (Main Cathedral)
» Tuesday & Thursday: 7 p.m. — Mass in Spanish (Blessed Sacrament Chapel)
Advanced reservations are not required at this time, but pandemic safety precautions will be observed.
