Accessibility & Inclusion

Large-print prayer books and assisted-hearing devices are available upon request. Please see an usher or a member of the staff should you need assistance.

Due to recent changes in our world, all services going forward will be multiaccess – both in-person and offered virtually.

Accessible Entrances
Our accessible entrance is located behind our parking lot on Marshal Street. Should you need assistance, please let our staff know and we would be happy to escort you inside. 

We are located across the street from the Kent Street stop on the C line. We do not have public parking, but our neighborhood has plenty of on-street metered parking directly outside our building, across the street and down the block.
