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.
