Christ is in our Midst!

Welcome to St. Mary Orthodox Church in Central Square, Cambridge, MA! We are a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America. Hopefully, you will leave here with a glimpse of our unique and beautiful congregation. Perhaps you will even accept our heartfelt invitation to visit us if you are ever in the Boston area. The community of St. Mary's is ethnically diverse, warm, hospitable, and deeply spiritual. The most apparent reflection of this is in the remarkable variety of people who have chosen to make our parish their home.

This Gospel passage is read for us on the first Sunday of Lent as it speaks to our Christian journey - our walk with Christ.  It is an invitation for us to follow Christ and begin our own pilgrimage to the Kingdom.  To become more God-like is the telos or purpose of our journey.  Read more »

On Forgiveness Sunday

February 26, 2023 - by Dn. Jeff Smith
Discipline and asceticism can help us master the flesh, and fasting fits the mind for devotion and sets an example for simplicity. So, Jesus counsels measured asceticism.
