Bishop’s Holiday Dinners 2019
For more than 55 years, Catholic Charities Worcester County and the Bishop of Worcester have hosted the Bishop’s Holiday Dinners in order to assure a warm meal and fellowship to homebound elders, people with disabilities, and those who would otherwise be alone on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
This year, the Bishop’s Holiday Dinners on Thanksgiving and Christmas provided over 4,200 dinners (both home delivered and sit-down meals) to people by approximately 640 Catholic Charities volunteers. Catholic Charities receives names of people needing dinners from local elder service organizations and other agencies which have a long-standing relationship with Catholic Charities. The staff and volunteers have seen this need steadily grow as elders continue to age in place, rather than move to assisted living or nursing home facilities.
Catholic Charities provides bus service to and from St. Paul Cathedral (sit-down dinners) for those attending the dinner. Busses will pick up individuals at: Lincoln Village, Booth Apartments, Seabury Heights, Green Hill Towers, Belmont Apartments, Green Island NOC, Greenwood Gardens, Canterbury Towers, Elm Park Towers, Pleasant Towers, Murray Avenue Apartments, Marble Apartments, and Webster Square Towers. Email email@example.com for more information on bus service.
