Outreach

Outreach is the name we give to our mission to reach out to the surrounding community. Our members are active in many programs, and we give financial contributions to several organizations.

Our Outreach Work can be understood as falling into three general categories: Caring for the person, the community and the world- and our hope is that as we care for all three of these- the person, the community and the world- that they will each grow stronger and reflect more completely God’s love for us all.

All Saints’ Outreach Ministries include, but are not limited to:

  • Habitat for Humanity
  • West VA Workcamp
  • Maine Mission Trip
  • All Saints’ Thrift Shop
  • Food for Friends Feeding Program
  • Penny Basket for the Feeding Program
  • Merrimack Valley Housing Project
  • B Safe Program
  • Angel Tree Program
  • Environmental Stewardship

To learn more about these ministries look for their posts on Outreach- and consider joining us- more hands make lighter and more joyful work!

All Saints’ Thrift Shop Needs YOU!

Our Thrift Shop is 50 years young, and needs some help to stay strong. This volunteer run shop is open Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays from 10a.m. – 3p.m., and most volunteers work one 2.5 hour shift/month. We have several shifts in need of coverage and are hoping that you will join this small, but mighty group.

We will open for early take in of fall clothes on Wednesday and Thursday, August 29 and 30 from 11am – 2pm, and for regular hours on Wednesday, September 5.

Summer feeding program help needed!

Our annual feeding mission at the Epiphany School in Dorchester, B-Safe, is on July 5 and 6 this year. We prepare the meal for 140 here, drive it in, and serve. The B-Safe program is a Diocesan-run free day camp for at risk Boston youth, and is held at several sites throughout the city. Please let Maggie Marshall know if you are able to help cook, serve, or offer financial support.

Feeding program help needed!

As mentioned previously, we will be returning to the Epiphany School in Dorchester on 7/6 and 7/8 to feed 120 day campers and staff. In addition to needing cooks and servers that day, there are several other ways to help. First, financial donations to help defray the costs of the meals and paper goods are always welcome. Second, the staff welcomes gently used beach towels and books for grades 1-8. There will be a box outside the choir room for you to drop off these items. Please contact me if you have any questions. You can use the Contact Us form and select Choir Director for “To be contacted”. Thanks! Maggie Marshall.
