Our parishioners need you! All Souls meals and rides team volunteers provide simple but critical pastoral care to fellow parishioners on a very flexible schedule. A quarterly commitment when and how your schedule allows, providing a meal (homemade or purchased) or transportation for a parishioner during times of trial, hardship, or the first weeks of parenthood. For more information about serving, or to request meals or rides, please contact Erin Horne at allsoulshelp@gmail.com.

Meals

One of the important ways we care for one another at times of need – when someone is ill or housebound or after a death or birth – is to bring them a meal. We rely entirely on volunteers to make or buy and deliver these meals. It can be as simple as your family lasagna, a meal gathered from that day’s Farmer’s Market, or takeout picked up from a favorite restaurant. Please let us know if you can contribute to this effort…whether it’s for one meal or on an ongoing basis. Contact the the Meals and Rides Team as listed above if you are interested.

Rides

In response to difficulties or major events in church members’ lives such as illness, loss of job, or new babies, members can give other members rides to doctor’s appointments or church. Contact the Meals and Rides Team to find out more about:

  • Rides to and from church (both to worship services and to other church activities) for those unable to come on their own
  • Rides to and from doctor or other health-related appointments for those who are ill or without transportation
  • Picking up groceries or other essentials for those who are ill or without transportation
