All are welcome to travel with us to Austin Street Sunday morning at 4:15 am from Holy Covenant. We’ll carpool to Austin Street, set up and serve breakfast. We will also collect plastic bags for the residents to carry their food because all residents must leave the shelter at 6:00 am.

Fan Drive

Collecting Fans for those in need


We will be collecting fans for Senior Citizens and others in need through August 7th.  Please drop off your fans in the Narthex.  We will transport the fans to Metrocrest Services who will distribute fans to those who need them.  In the past the recipients have expressed sincere appreciation and talked about how much of a difference it made for them.  If you do not have time to go out and purchase a fan, we will be happy to do so for you.  For $20 we can purchase a new Box Fan or a Standing Oscillating Fan, so just note that your donation is for “Fans.”  Thank you Holy Covenant for again helping to meet the needs in our community.
