Outreach Programs

Pastoral Visitor Program

Visits to the sick and homebound are made by trained and CORI passed (background check) Pastoral Visitors who bring the Eucharist and the prayers of the parish to those at Framingham Union Hospital, Countryside Nursing Home or to their own home in Framingham. If a family member of yourself would like to receive a visit contact the Pastoral Visitor office at 508-875-6009.

Training for Pastoral Visitors is offered each fall at St. Bridget Parish and also available through the Pastoral Center in Braintree.

Food Pantry

The Food Pantry serves the needy in Framingham with grocery items to supplement their weekly food requirements. It operates from the Rectory Meeting Room Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11:30AM-12:30PM. Varied task opportunities exist. The rewards and benefits abound in doing good work for others.

Paul Mahoney Memorial Food Drive

Every year at Thanksgiving and Easter time, St. Bridget Parish conducts a food drive to assist both our own Food Pantry and that of our sister parish Most Holy Redeemer, East Boston. Information is disseminated through the weekly bulletin and posters at the church entrances. Volunteers are needed for the following: Promoting the food drive, receiving food at the food truck, being available at the church entrances for monetary donations, delivering food to our food pantry and to Most Holy Redeemer. Parishioners have been most generous over the years through their contributions of food, money and volunteering. Please join our group, and assist us in this brief but important ministry.

Christmas Outreach Program

During the months of November and December, parishioners are invited to join a program, which helps children of those who benefit from the Food Pantry and our own parish families. Donations are collected, organized, sorted, wrapped and distributed to the less fortunate during the week before Christmas.

CAP (Chauffer-A- Parishioner) Program

This organization is open to all those who are willing to drive a parishioner to the Saturday/Sunday Masses who would otherwise be unable to get to Church. It involves commitment every 2 weeks or more. Again, “people helping people” is at the heart of this apostolate.
