Thanksgiving Dinner Outreach

News November 4, 2021

Our parish has two different Thanksgiving dinner outreaches from each of our worship sites.  We are most grateful for any help you can give.


Anyone in need of Thanksgiving dinner help, please call the parish office at 617-734-0444 Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Sponsor a Family for Thanksgiving:  Our parish’s St. Vincent de Paul Society is working to provide Thanksgiving dinners for families in need.  A complete meal of turkey, potatoes, vegetables, and dessert will be assembled and delivered for the holiday to 50 families.  Please consider sharing your blessings by donating $25 to sponsor a family.  Online donations can be made on our website’s donation form under the Forms tab; choose the earmark Thanksgiving Dinner Outreach.  A check (payable to St. Mary’s Parish with “Thanksgiving Dinner” on the memo line) can also be mailed to the parish office or dropped off through the mail slot in the office side door.  All donations are appreciated—whether you can sponsor a family or contribute a few dollars.  Thank you very much for your generosity and support for those in need!


As in years past, parishioners at St. Lawrence donate frozen turkeys to needy Brookline families and to those in need at the Crossroads Family Shelter in East Boston.  There will be sign-up sheets near the rectory exit of the church for parishioners to donate 18-20 lb. frozen turkeys.  After Mass on November 21st, the turkeys will be collected for distribution.  Your help is needed.  Please sign up and help families in need have a happy Thanksgiving.
