A message from Archbishop Coakley

"Recently a small satanic group announced its intention to conduct a blasphemous demonstration outside of Saint Joseph’s Old Cathedral on Christmas Eve. Though disgusted by the audacity of the planned event, I am discouraging parishioners and others from giving this group the attention they seek, and instead inviting all to focus our attention on celebrating the joyful birth of Our Savior, Jesus Christ.

On this holy night, we will give thanks to God and honor the Holy Family in reparation for these planned outrages against Jesus, Mary and Joseph."

-- The Most Rev. Paul S. Coakley, Archbishop
