The 2022 Walk for Hunger

Walk for Hunger LogoAdvent parishioners have supported our Tuesday Community Dinners every year for over 30 years. The annual Walk for Hunger is Sunday, May 1, 2022, and is once again a “Virtual Walk”. Virtual or not – Team Advent will walk as we have done every year, and we will fundraise to be sure the Community Dinner gets vital financial support to help those in need.

You can donate to support the Tuesday Community Dinner directly on our online giving platform: https://onrealm.org/theadventboston/-/form/give/now – choose “Community Dinner” from the dropdown menu for “Fund”.

Our 2022 goal is to raise $10,000.

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

For over thirty years the Advent has served a nourishing meal each Tuesday night to people in need within the greater Boston community. Often the need is as much for companionship as it is for something to eat. This ministry provides both a friendly and safe environment for all our guests.

Starting May 17th
we will serve dinner at 6:00 pm.
The hall will be open from 6:00 pm to 7:00 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.
