OUTREACH MINISTRIES THIS WEEKEND: Our annual “Be Their Valentine” at-the-door collection to underwrite lunches at St. Francis House Day Shelter in Boston. Look for the heart-shaped boxat any church exit! ***St. Francis House, open for twenty-six years, is New England’s largest day shelter, serving approximately 800 men and women each day. Complementing the night shelters of the area, St. Francis House provides a place for those in need to receive protection from the elements and services to help them rebuild their lives. Doors are open from 7 A.M. to 3 P.M., 365 days a year. During those hours, free breakfasts, lunches, and take-away sandwiches are provided. LOOKING FOR CHEATERS! That is- looking for gently used or new non-prescription reading glasses! Our “missionaries” to our sister parish, St. Anne’s, in Kingston, Jamaica, discovered that many parishioners are hampered in their daily lives, even from doing common (and sometimes very important) things like reading prescription medication instructions, because they can’t read the fine print. Let’s help them out. On the weekend of February 26th-27th, we’ll gather donations of cheaters and get them ready to be brought to their new homes! For those who would like to contribute but don't have old magnifiers or cheaters at home, on the weekend of February 12th-13th, you'll find tags with power/strength numbers (like 1.75, 2.25 etc...) that, if you like, you could purchase for St Annie's parishioners. This will allow us to make sure we have several different strengths to send. Look for the tags in the gathering space of the upper church and Lannon Chapel. Please note: no prescription glasses – only non-prescription ones. A HEADS UP: LET’S SOCK IT TO ‘EM AGAIN! For the entire month of March, we’ll be collecting new, white cotton socks and shower flip-flops for patients of Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Registration begins soon! 4.
