It appears the EBNA’s message to the South End Community Facebook Group indicating that Cathedral Station would be closing was incorrect and due to a typo. In yesterday’s post I shared a copy of their January 3rd meeting agenda, here.
However, in a separeate conversation on Reddit last night Jostlose_w8 shared this message. Indicating that the owner of the building is entertaining renting space at 1220 Washington Street to a dispensary. I’ve included the City of Boston’s community meeting for proposed cannabis establishment invite below the Reddit comment. Under the image I’ve also included a link if you’d like to know more about that meeting and wish to attend / participate.

Which is why you should always check sources before publishing. You should have contacted Cathedral directly before posting. Get the word from the horse’s mouth and don’t post rumors.
I completely agree with you and I want you to know that I did reach out to Cathedral Station (twice actually) before I published anything.
I published the post after after my second attempt to contact Cathedral went unanswered (which BTW is not normal) and after the EBNA published their agenda on the South End Community Facebook Group.
I’m relieved they will remain open and hope in the future, Cathedral will be more responsive when people in the community reach out. One can’t help but wonder if they wanted the confusion – it certainly brought in a lot of patrons over the past several days and was a topic of discussion there last night when I stopped by for a nightcap.
