Community Service

Take and Eat

St. Patrick’s Take & Eat Weekend Meal Program is a thriving mission program for our church. We are completely volunteer staffed by 106 church members and friends. Currently we are serving 95 meals per month to our clients, including 97 on the Sunday before Christmas. As you can see from some of our comments posted below, our clients love our meals and just as much, the compassion and love that are served with them!

If you’d like to help with Take & Eat as a kitchen worker, packer, driver or baker, please contact the rectory at 413-532-2850 or email stpatrickssh@comcast.net.

Notes from Take & Eat Clients:

  • I really appreciate the meal. It was very good. Thank everyone that prepared such a good meal for me as I can’t do it for myself. Thank you again.
  • Great meal! That soup was the best. You people do a great job. Thanks to all of you, it made my day. We love y’all!
  • As always I show how much I appreciate your Sunday dinners. The warm reception on the wonderful volunteers makes me so happy it brings tears to my eye, especially the youngsters. It’s great to know that this is a good way to have them participate. All meals are great, but today it seemed extra delicious, I guess “it hit the spot”. May God bless you all.

Kate’s Kitchen

Our three Kate’s Kitchen groups prepare meals every second Monday, first Tuesday and first Thursday mornings of the month to be served at Kate’s Kitchen at noon time for people in need.
