Our Community is committed to serving the poorest among us. In keeping with this commitment, 15% of our offertory is given to charities chosen by the Community.

This quarter we are partnering with Spiritus Christi, Rochester in their H.O.P.E. project empowering the people of Haiti as they rebuild their community.

 In the past we have assisted:

  • Rural Water Ventures: Saving children's lives in rural Nicaraguan villages (click here to see how our donation is being used)
  • The Maia Project: Bringing Clean Water to the Children of Palestine
  • Kids4Peace Boston (an interfaith, non-political organization of Jews, Christians, and Muslims that fosters friendship, understanding and respect between families in the Boston area by hosting children of these three faiths from Jerusalem in a summer program)
  • Casserly House (serving immigrant children and adults through tutorials and summer camp programs)
  • SAFE PASSAGE
  • Madre
  • Earth N'Vessels
  •  St. Boniface Haiti Foundation (working to bring healthcare to victims of the devastating earthquake and to help to rebuild Haiti)
  • ABBY'S HOUSE in Worcester (serving homeless and battered women and children)
  • "Bridge to Africa" project initiated by a young Peace Corps worker from the Boston area to provide drinking water for the African village of Baraboulé, Burkina Faso.

Meditation Fifty-three: from Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern of New Zealand (5/26/2020)

Dear Friends,We pray you are safe and well.  In the spirit of our philosophy of co-creating community and our awareness that the Spirit speaks through each of us, we invite you to share your meditations with us as well.  We truly believe that in God’s economy of abundance, when we share our blessings, our thoughts, our feelings, we are all made richer. Today’s meditation is written by Jacinda Arcern, Prime Minister of New Zealand. She is one of our heroines: you might remember the way she handled the mass shooting and changing gun laws in her country.  May this meditation nourish your contemplative-active hearts!We hope and pray that you and your loved ones experience genuine peace of mind and heart, and remain in good health during this challenging time. May the Easter Season be a time of peace, of healing and hope, of the resurrection of joy in your life!With our love and care,Ron & Jean
