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.
