FIELD TRIP TO ASCENTRIA IN WORCESTER

We are joining with Ascentria again, this time partnering with them in the Unaccompanied Refugee Minors Program. This program is responsible for refugee, asylee, and trafficked young people under the age of 18 who are in the U.S. with no parent or guardian. They are currently serving over 68 youth who are returning to high school and in need of the following items: backpacks or book bags; pens, pencils, erasers; notebooks; binders and loose leaf notebook paper; pencil cases; rulers; calculators; pocket dictionaries; pocket folders. We will be collecting these all month.

On October 12th we will go to Worcester to meet with Ascentria and deliver the items, leaving on the 7:45 a.m. Hyline and returning on the 5 p.m. Steamship fast ferry.

The 3 youth that Ascentria asked us to focus our support and prayers on are: Juan from Honduras, Kuya from Eritrea, and Vishnu from Nepal.


Our two remaining congregational town hall meetings are scheduled for Tuesday, September 27, at 6 p.m. at the parsonage (10 Fair Street) and Sunday, October 23, during coffee hour in the Activities Room following the service. Please join us as we practice living into our principles!
