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!
