Franciscan Friars of the Atonement: Bringing reconciliation, healing and Atonement to the marketplace
"In 1960 Richard Cardinal Cushing, the Archbishop of Boston, invited the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement to send some friars to establish the presence of our community in the archdiocese. The friars felt deeply privileged to be admitted into the archdiocese, and Cardinal Cushing wanted them to "conduct a public Chapel and Information Center in the South Shore area." His concept was to establish a "chapel of convenience" to serve the increasingly suburban and mobile faithful in the southern part of the diocese.
