The Mission and Vision Statements of common cathedral and Ecclesia Ministries, ecumenical ministries serving the homeless in Boston, Massachusetts.
common cathedral 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.
To remind chronically un–housed adults in downtown Boston of who they are — children of God, loved by God, worthy in the eyes of God;
To form supportive spiritual community with chronically un–housed adults in downtown Boston, with those moving off the streets into housing, and between housed and un-housed people;
To advocate for and with un-housed people toward ending the condition of homelessness in Boston and the Commonwealth.
