St. Clement Eucharistic Shrine can be found in the middle of Boston, two blocks from the Prudential Center. It was dedicated as St. Clements Church in 1935 and 10 years later was made a shrine, a spiritual powerhouse, as then Archbishop Richard Cushing called it. Not much has changed. Oblates of the Virgin Mary priests who live here act as chaplains at hospitals and Our Lady of Grace Seminary, and staff the St. Francis Chapel shrine at the Pru. The shrine is popular with tourists and locals alike. Many college students attend Mass here, and if you stop by after dark, you may hear Oblates singing night prayers. The shrine is also home to the Lanteri Catholic Cinema Society.
