Welcome to Cathedral in the Night

Cathedral in the Night is an outdoor Christian community in downtown Northampton, MA which seeks to create a safe place for all people: the homeless, the housed, the church-less, the churched, the student and the resident to explore, question and live out their spiritual beliefs; to gather for a meal and to empower one another to engage in issues of social justice by working to fight the causes of inequality and homelessness.



Worship is an integration of contemplative worship (modeled after the communities of Iona, Holden and Taize) and contemporary context (multi-sensory and participatory, using the talents of local musicians, poets, artists and lighting engineers). It is a place and an activity which fosters an atmosphere of spiritual curiosity and exploration, in order to create a community of support, challenge and deeper faith.


A Meal

Worship concludes with Eucharist which then leads into a meal offered freely to all present. Congregations and restaurants prepare, donate and help serve the meals.

We worship every week rain, snow, or shine. We will have a tent/pavilion when the weather is bad and light when it is dark.
