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 April 15.

Meeting Community Needs:

The Lighthouse is re-opening in Union City. Please keep this organization in your prayers as it prepares to welcome its first residents. Here is a list of current needs:

Hoboken Community Center Food Bank at 1301 Washington is in need of non-food supplies for those in need. Diapers, wipes, formula, pet food, hygiene items, adult diapers, and sanitary supplies are most welcome. Find more information here.

Hoboken Shelter: ​​Current needs are: CASH donations, paper plates and bowls, latex gloves, bleach, breakfast cereal, coffee, and individual packets of sugar, salt, and pepper, and paper napkins. 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’ 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 and Streat-ery 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, socks, and bottled water. Monetary contributions may be made here, noting Lunchtime Ministry.

And for All Saints:

You can affirm the unity and vitality of the Church during this time when we are prevented from gathering as a community:

  • Please prayerfully consider making, renewing, or increasing your pledge to the life and ministry of this parish in the coming year;
  • 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.comwith any questions about pledging or giving.
