our mission

the crossing at the altar 

The Crossing is a community that seeks to walk in the life-changing, world-changing Way of Jesus, sharing the love, hope, beauty and justice of God in the city of Boston.


Everybody is welcome to join as we gather for transformative worship, spiritual practice and 

authentic community; as we fuse the wisdom and mystery of ancient traditions with that of urban mystics, artists and activists; and as we move out to join God in healing, freeing and blessing all people, communities and the earth. 


did someone say barbecue? 

Why yes, Cara Mancini welcomes everyone to South Boston on

Enjoy all this AND prayer @ Cara's house on Thursday

Thursday evening for House Church AND barbecue. Come for the food (and bring some drinks and desserts, too). Come for the music: Cara is a terrific musician and so is her dad, and they can't wait to lead us all in Evening Prayers. RSVP to Cara at - good to plan for a crowd :)


I'm back from vacation and looking forward to a rockin' good time with you all in Southie. I can't believe summer is nearly over, so one more barbecue sounds like a really good idea to me. So bring friends, kids, pets (um, I think), and join us by the water. Directions and details below ...


summer community @ the crossing


Once again, we build Christian community in a more intimate way in the month of August, by doing House Church. It's 6-7:30pm Thursdays, so change the location but not the time on your calendar.   

** AUG. 18: Cara Mancini hosts in South Boston

Bring drinks and dessert and stir the Spirit in Southie :)

Location: Cara's sweet house, complete with barbecue! 

   181 D Street, Apt. 1, South Boston MA

Directions: Take any Red Line train to Broadway.

   Walk up W. Broadway (pass South Boston Yoga) about 5 blocks.

   Right on D Street. Walk about 3 blocks. 181 will be on left.


** AUG. 25: Michael Zahniser hosts in Jamaica Plain 

Help to bless (and maybe do some work on) the new home where Michael and several Crossing members will make community. 

Location: 77 Wachusett Street, Jamaica Plain (Orange Line)



** SEP. 1: Evening Prayer at Cathedral 


Tell me more: If you'd like to learn about the concept of House Church, CONTACT Isaac at


BACK TO CHURCH / Thurs., Sept. 8 @ 6pm

We return to the Cathedral for full-on church September 8, a few days after Labor Day. Eucharist never looked so good!


THE CROSSING 5th BIRTHDAY PARTY / Thurs., Sept. 29 @ 6pm 

Come out to Boston Common and celebrate all that God has done for and with us over these first five years of ministry. Jam to great music, share worship out in the open and help raise money for the next five (or 10 or 20) years. 



If you've got a pastoral concern, or just need some support and conversation, this August, please don't hesitate to contact Isaac Everett. He's our man on the scene during the break! 

CONTACT Isaac Everett, Minister for Liturgical Arts -- or 917.306.2442



We've reached $22,000 in promised giving for 2011 (actually received: $14,851). That leaves another $8,000 in pledges to secure, and a little more than $15,000 to actually raise to fund our budget for 2011. Haven't filled out a pledge card yet? Click the links to the left and let generosity wash over you :)
