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!

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.

July outreach opportunity

Food, glorious food! If you’re free on July 6 and July 8, consider joining the team that is bringing food to the B-Safe program at the Epiphany School in Dorchester. We assemble at 8ish each of those mornings to prepare a meal for 140, and then drive to Dorchester to serve the meal. Volunteers can do just the Chelmsford food prep, or sign on to do everything, which usually gets us back to Chelmsford at 2:30. If you are unable to help, but would like to donate money for the food and paper goods needed, please make a check payable to All Saints’ and put “B Safe” in the memo line. If you are able to help, please let Maggie Marshall know. You can contact her using the Contact Us page, choosing Choir Director from the “To be contacted” menu.
