Ceremonies this weekend celebrated the dedication of a new building at St. Paul's Church on Arrow St., which will house the Harvard-Radcliffe Catholic Students' Center.
The building will also contain St.Paul's parish offices and the Boston Archdiocesan Choir school, a grammar school with an emphasis on music, according to Father Richard J. Malone, a member of the Harvard-Radcliffe Roman Catholic chaplaincy.
The dedication ceremonies included lectures and panel discussions about the life of the Catholic Church in Cambridge, said Father James A. Field, assistant pastor of St. Paul's.
The new building cost several million dollars and was funded primarily by the sale of the old parish rectory, Field said.
The new student center includes a student lounge, more office space for the center's four chaplains, a student library and a large meeting hall, Malone said.
