common cathedral is both an ecumenical ministry to Boston's homeless population and a unique resource for faith communities in the surrounding towns to engage in ministry to the homeless in Boston.
We are the common cathedral
common cathedral (Ecclesia Ministries, Inc.) is an outdoor congregation, housed and un-housed, sharing God’s love through community, pastoral care, creative expression, and worship on Boston Common. We are non-proselytizing and ecumenical. We welcome and support all people.
common cathedral serves as an important community for people experiencing homelessness, and for faith communities who want to be in supportive relationship with un-housed individuals and their friends
common cathedral welcomes everyone to participate fully in our worship and extended hospitality. Youth and adults join together for worship on Boston Common and are also welcome to participate in our additional programs.
Whatever your situation, housed or homeless, we hope the material presented on this web site will be both useful and inspirational.
We are hiring. Please check out our new position and share it with someone you think might be a good fit!
