The third episode in our series peers inside the life of Mary Eaton, a minister for the homeless community in Boston. From April 3 to 10 she kept audio diaries and recordings that she shared with The Post.
Eaton is a minister at Common Cathedral, an outdoor congregation on the Boston Common. There, Eaton supports the homeless community as a spiritual leader, and now she also cares for their well-being during the pandemic. She let us into her life during the Christian Holy Week, just as the number of reported coronavirus deaths in Massachusetts more than doubled.
This is Mary Eaton’s story, in her own words.
