Shop on the famous Newbury Street, then take a break to stroll through Boston Gardens and grab a bite at Fanieul Hall. Bring the kids to the aquarium or museum before hitting the waterfront greenway for a splash in the fountains with the kids.
St. Mary Orthodox Church of Cambridge is a parish of the Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America, but it is a pan-Orthodox church with an English language liturgy and a congregation comprised of Syrians, Lebanese, Greeks, Russians, Eritreans, Ethiopians, Ukrainians, Romanians, Bulgarians, Koreans, Chinese, Latinos, and American-born converts. One finds an acceptance of diversity and eclecticism, an emphasis on the notion of the congregation as a family, and a deep commitment to the act of devotion.
Father Antony Hughes, Saint Mary's priest, was himself a Southern Baptist who converted to Orthodoxy while studying at Oral Roberts University. This Orthodox congregation worships in a white clapboard New England-style meeting house built in 1821, formerly a Universalist church. Its spectacular stained glass windows constitute the largest collection of pre-Civil War stained glass in the Northeast.
