The People of the Promise is a Eucharistic-centered worship community designed to serve the liturgical needs of our members who are seeking a more personal alternative to the traditional parish structure.
We are, first and foremost, a community of faith rooted in the Roman Catholic tradition. We believe that the smaller, informal nature of our community provides a unique context in which we can share our faith and worship together. Many of our members have raised their families in this community.
We celebrate a traditional Mass but with a dialogue homily, meaning that members are free to add their own reflections on the reading to that of the celebrant.
From September through June we meet twice a month for liturgy on Sunday at 10 a.m. in the Faber Community Chapel at Boston College, 188 Foster St. Brighton. During Advent and in Lent we meet every Sunday. We also hold a weekend retreat in Fall or Spring and schedule summer liturgies at members’ homes. With members drawn from throughout the Greater Boston area, POP has been meeting regularly for more than 40 years.
We welcome newcomers.
