All Saints Night at the Hoboken Shelter: October 15 is the 3rd Thursday of the month, which is our night at the shelter. The process for volunteering in the kitchen has been changed to accommodate safety and distancing protocols. There will be two shifts: 3:00-5:00 pm and 5:00-7:00 pmYou must sign up in advance so that the Shelter will know who is expected and won’t accept additional volunteers beyond a limit of four per session. Contact the parish office if you can volunteer for one of the shifts on October 15.

Meeting Community Needs:

Hoboken Shelter: ​​Current needs are: CASH donations, prepared sandwiches, latex gloves, bleach, breakfast cereal, coffee, and individual packets of sugar, salt, and pepper. There is also an Amazon wish list so that your items can be delivered directly to the shelter at 300 Bloomfield Street.

The Jubilee Center: The Jubilee Center Board of Trustees continues to negotiate the future of the building and to plan programming for 2021. Your continued generosity is appreciated.

In Jesus’s Name Charities: There is always a shortage of emergency food supplies. You may shop online for exactly what is most needed or you may send a check to them at 411 Clinton Street, Hoboken. Since the grounds of Our Lady of Grace are closed, there is currently no in-person drop-off.

Lunchtime Ministry at SMT: Many of the same people who utilize shelter services also come to St. Matthew Trinity’s Lunchtime Ministry, now providing take-away lunches and coffee. Open Monday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – noon, they are in need of ready-made sandwiches, pop-top canned soups, granola bars, and boxed juices.​ Monetary contributions may be made here, noting Lunchtime Ministry.

DJ’s Free Market redistributes God’s abundance by delivering Joy and much needed items from those who have much to those who have little. Our current drive is for old computers, monitors, keyboards and mice that will be refurbished by Computers4People and donated to people in need. Perhaps you or your child is upgrading to a new device for the new school year, and the old device still has some life left in it? You can read more about the drive in our newsletter here. Please contact us as djsfreemarket@gmail.com to make arrangements for drop off at All Saints Church, or you can arrange for Computers4People to pick up your items by accessing the application on their website. Contact Audrey Truschke if you have any questions audrey.truschke@gmail.com).

And for All Saints:

You can affirm the unity and vitality of the Church in this time of crisis:

  • If you are a pledger (or a regular non-pledge giver), and you are in the habit of making gifts during services, you can make those contributions electronically here or by mail.
  • If the current economic disruption threatens your income or livelihood, be assured that your pledge is not a debt, and that generosity can only be measured in terms of your personal circumstances. A decreased pledge does not necessarily equal decreased generosity.
  • If you are in a position to increase your pledge, doing so in a time of crisis is a powerful sign of the mutual care to which all members of the Church are called.
  • Please contact the church office (office@allsaintshoboken.com) with any questions about pledging or giving.
