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
Religious education and faith formation for youth at the Cathedral parish will run from January to May 2021 as a hybrid online learning with one monthly in-person class. Please register by Dec 31 to reserve your child’s spot. Orientation will be January 21, 2021. Register Now for Religious Ed.
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 able to begin inviting the faithful back in-person to the celebration of Holy Mass on weekdays, beginning with Mass in English on Wednesday at 9 a.m. and in Spanish on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Advanced reservations are required because of the small capacity.
