We are committed to making a difference in the world
Mission work and outreach into our surrounding community and world are integral to our understanding of the Christian faith and life. We support national and worldwide initiatives sponsored by regional and national Episcopal Church organizations, as well as many local charities through our weekly coffee hour donations. Through the Diocese of Massachusetts and Episcopal Relief and Development we find opportunities to be part of larger missions, such as fighting AIDS in Africa and hurricane relief.
Our parish Mission Commission works to increase our awareness of local and global issues, helping us to understand the root causes of social problems and how we as Christians can help. Guest speakers are regularly invited to address the congregation about opportunities for engagement in mission outreach. Parish engagement has included backpack drives to support children in Syria and families in the Boston area, food drives for the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry, Gifts of Life through Episcopal Relief and Development, clothing drives for Lazarus House in Lawrence, and more.
Some of the organizations we have supported and partnered with in recent years include:
