At All Souls Parish we are working to be better neighbors as we strive to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and to love our
neighbor as ourselves.
We are beginning a collection for the month of February for toiletries for members of HOPE House in Port Chester. We will be collecting shampoo, soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouth wash (no alcohol), feminine hygiene products and socks. Items may be brought to worship on Sunday mornings or dropped off at the church office between the hours of 9am-1pm
We as a community of faith seek to live out that mission in all that we say and do in our worship and fellowship and service to one another, the greater community and the world around us. Our hands-on mission initiatives related to food insecurity and other needs directly address the needs of the community. We currently participate in the weekly provision of food for Port Chester children who would be nutritionally challenged when school is not in session (weekends, holidays), organized responses to specific emergency situations for families in need (clothing, housing, legal advice, referrals for services), and an Angel Tree at Christmas that provides gifts to needy students in Port Chester. All Souls has always been sensitive to both local mission and worldwide outreach; the Session determines where our seasonal offerings will go, alternating between local and international missions. Individual members are heavily involved with many initiatives throughout the community. Our mission has always been an integral part of our church community.
Our Spring Collection was sent to the Presbyterian Hunger Program for the purpose of alleviating hunger in Yemen.
Our Summer Mission initiative is to support the Backpack Ministry of Inter Faith Welcome Coalition in San Antonio, Texas. One aspect of this group’s ministry is to provide back packs filled with supplies to migrants as they released from detention.
Often, they are released with nothing more than the clothes on their backs and a bus ticket. These back packs provide them with what they may need until they arrive at their next destination.
We are in the process of organizing a mission trip to San Antonio to work with and learn from Interfaith Welcome Coalition about their ministry to migrants as they cross the border.
In the Fall we will begin collecting to support children in our local school system who are food compromised through Food2GrowOn.
Our mission statement:
We are a caring community where God’s love grows as we:
Serve in God’s name,
Explore questions of faith and belief,
Grow spiritually, and
Seek God’s purpose in our lives.
Wherever you are in life's journey, find home with us!
