The weather is getting warmer and things are getting busier at the Mustard Seed. Coming up: prayer, discussion, and volunteer opportunities.
  • How's Donna Doing?: Long-time Mustard Seed soup kitchen director Donna Domiziano is back at her post-Mustard Seed apartment off Vernon Street in Worcester. She’s in a wheelchair, mostly healed up after a fall, now doing lots of physical therapy in hopes of being able to get into and out of the chair by herself. At that point, she’ll have an easier time riding in cars, and will get back to visiting soup kitchens and homeless shelters, helping out and cheering up the many down-and-out Worcesterites she befriended during her 30 years living and working at the Seed. Donna would love you to visit her. Her number is 508-304-6059.
  • Earth Day cleanup: Saturday, April 27, 8am-noon, The Mustard Seed will be one of many sites across the city where people will be meeting for the annual Worcester Earth Day cleanups, spending the morning cleaning up our streets. We have plenty of gloves and trash bags, but if you have a trash grabber please bring it along. (Facebook link)
  • Compostable containers: As another step towards environmental responsibility, we're using compostable plates and cups rather than styrofoam ones at dinner. If your group has been donating styrofoam items, let's talk about whether there might be non-styrofoam equivalents that still make sense.
  • Mass times: Holy Mass will be celebrated in the chapel upstairs at the Mustard Seed Friday April 12 and Friday May 10 at 7pm. The celebrant will be Fr. John Foley.
  • Monday and Friday prayer: Every Monday and Friday (when no mass is scheduled) we pray vespers together at the Mustard Seed at 6:30pm, right after cleaning up for the night. All are invited to join us.
  • Discussion Meetings: We're having a discussion meeting on immigration Monday, April 8 at 7pm. Anyone interested in the issue is welcome.
  • Afternoon volunteers wanted: We are now providing various low-key activities for our guests every weekday from 4-5pm. We could definitely use more volunteers to expand what we offer. For more information, call Mike at 508-499-9638.
We feel blessed to be able to do this work, alongside all of you. Thank you for your service and fellowship.

Donna sends her love to all.
