Christmas Mass Schedule
Celebrate the holyday of the Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord with us at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross. See the entire Christmas Mass schedule on our Mass Times page
Please note that the main space of the Cathedral is currently closed for renovation and restoration. All Masses, adoration, confessions, and other events, unless otherwise noted, will take place downstairs in Our Lady’s Chapel. One exception: all Masses in the Extraordinary Form (Latin) take place in the ground-floor Blessed Sacrament Chapel. Both chapels have separate entrances along Union Park Street; please follow the signs to the appropriate chapel entrance.
Ring in the Christmas Octave with carols and Christmas songs from around the world, sung by seminarians from Redemptoris Mater in Our Lady’s Chapel on Friday, December 28 at 7 p.m. A fun celebration for the whole family. After the concert, enjoy hot chocolate and sweets in Deacon Rosa Hall.
Consider making a short-term commitment to sing in the Cathedral Choir for one or more of the Christmas Masses (4:30 p.m. Christmas Eve, Midnight Mass, or 11:30 a.m. Christmas Day). Rehearsals will be Thursdays December 13 and December 20 at 7 p.m.
Stop by and see Richard Clark, Director of Music and Organist, after Mass or email him for more information.
Engaged couples, register for our marriage preparation classes at the Cathedral! Classes will be held Thursdays 7:30 to 8:30 p.m., starting November 29 in Deacon Rosa Hall at the Cathedral. For more information, email Father Pablo Gomis.
Parking for Cathedral parishioners and volunteers is available on-street and in the paid parking lots (parking information is available here). Additionally, the Cathedral is on the MBTA SL4 and SL5 Silver Line busses at the Union Park Street stop and is a short walk from Back Bay Station on the Commuter Rail and Orange Line.
The rectory parking lot directly behind the Cathedral can only be used by residents of the rectory going forward. Cars not belonging to rectory residents may have to be removed and towed. Please make appropriate parking arrangements or use the available public transportation options to visit the Cathedral of the Holy Cross going forward. We thank everyone in advance for your cooperation and understanding.
