Christ is in our midst! He is and ever shall be!

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.

Spiritual Quotes

 

"...orthodoxy comes to function as a means for justifying not so much conservative ideas as conservative people. Those who will not risk or cannot create something new in life, fasten themselves to some orthodoxy. They draw authority and, finally, power as representatives and administrators of genuineness - protectors of the forms, interpreters of the letter. They transform, finally, any orthodoxy whatever into a 'procrustean bed' where they mutilate life in order to make it fit the demands of their dogma."

 
- Christos Yannaras
