Parish Outreach Programs
For information on any of these groups please call
During the months of November and December, parishioners are invited to
join a program which helps the children of those who benefit from the
Food Pantry Program and our own parish families. Donations are collected,
organized, sorted, wrapped and distributed to the less fortunate during
the week before Christmas.
The Food Pantry serves the needy in Framingham with grocery itemss to
supplement their weekly food requirements. It operates from the meeting
room of St. Bridget's Rectory. This is a mid-day, weekday operation. Please
apply only if you are available at that time. Varied task opportunities
exist. The rewards and benefits abound in doing good works for others.
The Parish Purls are knitters of all levels of expertise who provide items
to be given to the families of the Christmas Outreach Program. Occasionally,
we extend our outreach service to include special programs such as hats
for cancer patients or premature infants. This group meets Wednesdays
from 9:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the Parish Renewal Center.
This invaluable service, which is hosted by volunteers, assists Monsignor
Strahan in setting up luncheons (general, private, etc.) and any other
occasions/activities which may be required during the course of the year.
Redeemer Parish, Crossroads Shelter
Several years ago, St. Bridget's Parish adopted Most Holy Redeemer Parish
in East Boston as our "Sister Parish". During the year clothing and food
drives as well as financial assistance from our Sacrificial Giving Program
are directed to the needs of this vibrant parish community. In addition,
the Crossroads Shelter, sponsored by Most Holy Redeemer Parish, receives
similar aid and attention from a number of our parish societies.
