Faith in Boston: How Congregations Matter in a Changing Metropolis

Session II: Congregations, Communities, and Social Capital

Simon Mainwaring, an HDS student pursuing a ThM (master's in theological studies) degree delivers a presentation based on studies of several Boston-area churches. His presentation serves as a jumping-off point for a roundtable discussion featuring Ms. Dana Baker (Grace Chapel), the Rev. Ellis Clifton, Jr. (St. Mary's Episcopal Church), the Rev. Daniel Finn (St. Mark's Catholic Church), and Rabbi Jonah Pesner (Temple Israel). This is the second panel of a day-long conference on "Faith in Boston: How Congregations Matter in a Changing Metropolis" held April 30 in the Braun Room. Elfriede Wedam, of the Religion in Urban America Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, provided closing comments.
