Holy Diner BBQ

The Holy Diner is returning this summer. Enjoy a BBQ in the church parking lot every Thursday in July and August from 5 to 7 pm (inside in case of inclement weather). Please join us for a hamburger, hot dog or sausage on a bun along with a cold drink and a cookie. Cost: Donation. Here's a chance to catch up on summer happenings and a time to make new friends. Everyone is welcome and all proceeds support the local Food Bank in Dorchester.

Food Bank Donations

Donations are welcome on any Sunday or Wednesday morning until the end of June and beginning again in August. Summer is actually a time of great need as students no longer have access to schools' breakfast and snack programs. Snacks such as granola bars, puddings and fruit cups are needed and please consider donating family-sized canned fruit throughout the summer. When in our local Foodland, items can be purchased and placed in the Food Bank Box. All donations are very much appreciated.
