We have a continuing Outreach program by which we take the opportunity to assist various programs as the need arises. Outreach has been defined as “Christians helping those in need without question and without judgement.”
We have collected gently used items and canned goods at Westy’s storage in Norwood and delivered them to the Apostle’s House in Newark, N.J.
The Church of Holy Communion also sponsors a young boy named Neba through the Benedictine Sisters of Bethany and the Children of the Good Shepherd home affiliated with the Anglican Church of Cameroon, West Africa.
In our area, hunger is a hidden problem. Our outward affluence belies the fact that many families are struggling in this economy. Proper nutrition is also a concern as obesity levels have become epidemic. We at Holy Communion have begun a new ministry, the Food Pantry , to begin to address these concerns. Additional activities will be added as we are able.
Our Sacristy has now been rearranged to make room for the food pantry. We are coordinating our efforts with other food pantries in the area, including the Borough of Closter, to widen coverage as a new distibution point. Anyone wishing to volunteer in our efforts may contact the Church office. Being an Episcopalian is never a prerequisite. Any assistance is welcome. Norwood Brownie Troop 4164 comes to the food pantry. Click here for drop off information
Our food pantry does not offer monetary assistance.
