Support Common Cathedral in the Boston Marathon

Support Laura Shatzer run the Boston Marathon for common cathedral

On October 11, Laura Shatzer, former United Parish member and common cathedral chaplain, will be running the Boston Marathon to raise money for common cathedral.

  • Thanks so much to those of you who donated. Laura has reached her initial goal of $10,000 and is now aiming for $12,000. If you’d like to support her, you can donate to her fundraising page at or mail a check to Boston Medical Center, 801 Massachusetts Avenue, Office of Development, 1st Floor, Boston, MA  02118. Check should be made out to Boston Medical Center. Please make sure "Laura Shatzer- marathon" is included on the memo section of the check or on a separate note. This is super important to make sure the donations get credited toward her fundraising for common cathedral.
  • Additionally, Laura invites you to a celebration of the 25th anniversary of common cathedral on Boston Common on Sunday, October 10 at 1pm where the congregation will bless her feet/body/spirit before the marathon.
  • Lastly, if you live in Newton or Brookline, or if anyone wanted to gather at the church and cheer in Coolidge Corner, Laura would welcome hearing your voices/seeing you along the course! She estimates she’ll be passing through Brookline between 2 and 3:30pm.
