   About Us



Mission and outreach into the community and the world are hallmarks of St. Andrew's. 

The Community Outreach Ministry oversees a diverse program of assisting people in the community and beyond who need human or financial help, made possible by parishioners' contributions. Specific programs include cash and food donations to local food pantries; funding summer day care; scholarships for college and grade-school tuition; monetary help to individuals and families struggling to pay rent, utilities, or medical bills; a holiday meal program; and the provision of holiday gift cards to a local grocery store. 

For those interested in helping with outreach efforts, there are many ways to become involved:

  • Help with parishioners from St. Andrew's, Temple Emanu-el and Old North Church, Marblehead, with the Refugee Immigration Ministry (RIM)
  • Join other parishioners who participate in the Essex County Community Organization (ECCO), a community-organizing project supported by churches throughout Boston's North Shore
  • Prepare and serve food monthly at My Brother's Table in Lynn
  • Contribute food to the Marblehead Food Pantry (St. Andrew's is responsible for stocking the shelves during the month of March, but contributions are welcome any time)
  • Help prepare Thanksgiving baskets of donated food for local disadvantaged families
  • Prepare soups and casseroles for those in need inside and outside the parish
  • Help review applications for, and select recipients of, the Erik Isbrandsten September 11 Memorial Scholarship, which honors a parishioner's son who lost his life in the World Trade Center
