ST. CYPRIAN’S CHURCH – ITS ORIGIN The first decade of the twentieth century saw the largest exodus of people from the former British West Indian Islands to the shores of the United States. Although most of them settled in the Harlem and Brooklyn areas in New York, a considerable number of them came to the state of Massachusetts settling primarily in Boston and Cambridge. Concurrent with this movement came also African Americans from the southern states, some of whom were Episcopalians. The West Indians, who were predominantly Anglicans, and their African American counterparts immediately sought membership in the Episcopal Church. Unfortunately they were to experience the effects of racism and prejudice in a place where they least expected it – the church. In July 1921, a lot located at Tremont Street in Roxbury was purchased. The work of construction began with a groundbreaking ceremony on June 25th 1922 and the church building was opened for worship on Sunday February 10, 1924. The church was named after Cyprian, an outstanding theologian and Bishop of Carthage in North Africa.
