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. Explore on this site 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!

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

Important Upcoming Events
On Sunday 7 February 2016, the Very Reverend James Flavin, Episcopal Vicar for the Central Region of the Archdiocese, will celebrate the World Day for Consecrated Life Mass and Adult Confirmation at 11.30 am in the Main Church.
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: Wednesday 24 February; Thursday 31 March; 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: 3 February, 17 February and 2 March. Participants go out from the Cathedral, 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.
Community Notes
Important Mass Time Change ~ Beginning on Sunday 7 February 2016, the Mass in the Extraordinary Form (Latin) will begin at 10.00 am in the Lady Chapel in the lower level rather than 11.00 am.
