Help Welcome a Family and Settle Them in!

St Michael’s has offered to provide temporary housing for an overseas family traveling on an exit Visa Saturday, June 22.  The father discovered the accelerated travel date yesterday and, with help from the Priest in Charge at his local parish, started calling for space.  As we like to do here, St Michael’s stepped forward to help.

The family will stay in Hill House beginning Saturday, June 22 until they find an apartment of their own, or through the middle of August at the latest.

If you are interested in helping with donations of furniture or other household items, have a pickup truck that can help move items over the next few days, or have time to help get the home set up, please contact Mary Truslow as soon as you can!

Please avoid dropping things off at the house without contacting Mary or Hall first, especially after the family has moved in.  We hope to welcome them warmly, with St Michael’s love and care, and are blessed to have had God bring this family to us!

Student  Exchange Opportunity

Sherri Richardson is interested in hearing if there are any parishioners with a high-school aged child interested in participating in a short, 3 to 4 week exchange with a family that has a high-school aged daughter in Quebec. This short term exchange program is sponsored by the Rotary Club, and Sherri has details for those who are interested.

Peanut Butter and Jelly for the Summertime!

The food pantry is in great need of peanut butter and jelly (especially anything but grape!) Please pick up an extra jar or two next time you go shopping, bring them to the food pantry cart in the foyer, and help feed a child this summer.

B-SAFE Volunteers Needed

There are so many ways to be involved with this wonderful program, and B-SAFE would love to have you (or your Senior High schooler) be part of it. Opportunities are to assist with preparing and serving lunch on Wednesday 7/31 and Thursday 8/2 (time commitment is roughly 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.). We also need lots of bakers willing to whip up a couple dozen brownies, which are a favorite of the kids. Finally, we are very appreciative of any monetary donations should you feel so moved. Please contact Debbie Haggerty about all volunteer opportunities.

Become a B-SAFE Breakfast Angel!

Every day during the B-SAFE program, a full breakfast is provided for every participant. The supplies needed to prepare breakfast are purchased at Costco but with six B-SAFE program locations throughout Boston and Chelsea, getting the food to the sites is a huge undertaking. This is where our angels come in – they swoop in, purchase the food (which can be reimbursed), load it in their cars, and deliver it to one of the sites. Angels are needed at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 3 and on Thursdays, July 11, 18 and 25. To learn more or to sign up to help, please go to If you have questions, please contact Betsy Walsh (B-SAFE Partner Church Coordinator). Thank you!
