When you arrive, enter in the door to the left of the main church entrance. You can leave your stroller upstairs in the sanctuary, or bring it downstairs with you. Children must be supervised at all times.
More About Church of The Advent
The Church of the Advent was founded in 1844 by a handful of wealthy Beacon Hill families who wanted to establish a church where their servants could afford to worship. The church prides itself as being the first in Boston not to require its members to pay to rent out pews -- an average cost of $20,000 a year per family in today's dollars. In a $3 million-renovation in 2007 the church's exterior was scrubbed down for the first time in its history with immaculate results. Rev. Allan B. Warren III, a deacon and three assistant reverends lead masses and morning prayers at the church every day of the week. Sunday mass is celebrated three times at 8am, 9am and 11:15am. On Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday mass is celebrated at 12:15pm; on Wednesdays at 6pm and on Saturdays at 9am.
