It was an honor to host the opening of the American Guild of Organists convention recently.
Here are some images of this great event.

Yale University Organist Thomas Murray will be the guest artist at this year's Organ Benefit concert. Professor Murray has long been an advocate of our historic E. & G. G. Hook & Hastings Organ, and played the Dedicatory Recital of our replica console in 2004. His program will include music of Weitz, Rheinberger, Schumann, Bossi, and Widor — repertoire perfectly suited to this magnificent instrument and its vast cathedral setting. The concert is co-sponsored by the Boston Chapter of the American Guild of Organists.

Are you a Catholic who hasn’t yet received the Sacraments of First Communion and/or Confirmation? An unbaptized adult? An adult baptized in another Christian tradition? Then do consider taking the RCIA journey! The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a period of formation by which we walk together on a journey of faith to help us understand and appreciate Catholic beliefs, values, and traditions. Interested? Call the Cathedral office — 617.542.5682 — or give your name and contact information to any of our priests. May God continue to bless you!
