The Crossing meets in the sanctuary at The Cathedral of Saint Paul near Boston Common.
all are welcome
We gather at 6pm every Thursday to eat dinner and gather in fellowship for an hour, then Worship begins at 7. We are called to Worship after dinner by song, and we gather in a circle on the altar for Worship. The structure of Worship is available in the worship sheets so newcomers, oldcomers, and anycomers alike can follow along if they wish to. We offer scripture readings, a reflection from a community member, shared spiritual practice, reflective discussion space, open space for creative worship, song (and dance if you are so moved!), chant, prayers of the people, and open communion for all who wish to partake. All are welcome!
The sanctuary at St. Paul’s Cathedral where we meet is large with a vaulted ceiling. We meet in the small open chancel at the front of the church, making it homey by arranging lamps, and chairs. The altar is covered by colorful cloth and candles. We sit on chairs and the Crossing band sits at on the chancel with us, where there is a piano, bass, and drum. During worship, we use the sanctuary space more widely: there is an arts and crafts table and other stations where, during worship, people split into smaller groups for prayer or discussion.
