What is Project Angel Wings? Project Angel Wings is a Christian Community Service Initiative between Second Church in Dorchester, The Boston Project, Boston Trinity Academy, and the CrossWalk ministry of Park Street Church in Boston.

Together we are helping to re-beautify Codman Burying Ground, a historic cemetery owned by Second Church, which is ripe for transformation back to a place of community light, life and pride. A message from Reverend Dr. Victor R. Price (link to his message – see last page at bottom)

Why name it Project Angel Wings? Almost 200 years ago, Codman Burying Ground was ingeniously designed with walking paths shaped to form an angel. Reverend John Codman, first Pastor of Second Church, is buried at the head of that angel, while the grave markers of many prominent Dorchester citizens from generations past form the graceful angel's wings. In total, Codman Burying Ground spans four acres and is the largest tract of open-space in the Codman Square section of Dorchester.

Our Lord Jesus Christ has truly blessed Project Angel Wings. We thank Him not only for the physical transformations He has enabled us to achieve, but the community building opportunities this initiative continues to afford us.
