As much as we are a community bound together by our common worship, so too are we a community that strives to answer our Lord's calling to love and serve God through service to others.
When a group of Bostonians came together to form the Advent back in 1844, they created in her charter a clear objective: “to secure to a portion of the City of Boston the ministrations of the Holy Catholic Church, and more especially to secure the same to the poor and needy, in a manner free from unnecessary expense and all ungracious circumstances.” That objective remains core to who we are as a parish.
Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? nIn the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. (James 2:15-17)
Tuesday Night Supper
The community supper ministry began in January 1982. Each Tuesday evening for more than thirty years, members of the Advent have served a nourishing meal regardless of weather, season, or Church feast day. This service helps those in need of a meal and/or fellowship. Our mission is to provide a friendly and safe environment for our guests to enjoy each other’s company over a sit-down meal.
Doors open at 5:00 PM
Dinner is served at 5:30 PM
The hall closes at 6:30 PM
Volunteers for this important ministry of the Advent are always welcome to help with setup, serving and cleanup. If you can help please speak to Karen Harrington or one of the clergy.
