2021-22 SEASON
Basketball Season has resumed!

Hello,

This Saturday (January 22nd), we will resume the Basketball Program at St. Peter's Parish. We will follow the schedule for Saturday January 22nd. Instructional Division will be at regularly scheduled time 10-11a


The health and wellbeing of all remains a concern and we therefore request that if a child is not feeling well or has had direct contact at any time this week with someone in your household or at their respective school who has tested positive for Covid-19, that they refrain from participating in our basketball program this weekend.

In an effort to control the volume of people in our gym, we are asking that only one parent/adult accompany their son/daughter to the Instructional Program.

Barring any directives from public health officials that the program be halted, it is our intention to continue our program throughout February, though we will be prepared to postpone activities should it be advisable or necessary.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Dear Worcester Interfaith Community,


Please join us for a “Celebratory Gathering in Honor of Isabel Gonzalez-Webster” on Sunday, January 9, 2022 at First Baptist Church, 111 Park Avenue, Worcester from 2:00pm to 4:00pm with a brief presentation and program at 3:00pm.

This gathering will be our opportunity to both thank Isabel for her leadership of Worcester Interfaith and say farewell and Godspeed as she leaves the organization in mid-January to begin serving as Executive Director for Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) in New York City.

In announcing her decision to leave Worcester Interfaith, Isabel wrote that she has “had the pleasure to work with an incredible board of directors, staff, members, coalitions, and community to bring about racial and economic justice and address systemic inequities in the city of Worcester.” Though we will miss her, let us celebrate all that has been accomplished under Isabel’s leadership in just three action-packed years.

Attendees will be required to wear masks and observe all other posted Covid-19 safety protocols in effect the day of the event. Isabel asks that in lieu of gifts members consider making a financial donation to support the ongoing work of Worcester Interfaith.

We hope to see you there!

Celebration Committee
Pastor Nathan Pipho, Father Richard Trainor, Isabella Corazzini, Jane Cutting, Chaplain Martin Kelly, Rabbi Aviva Fellman

 Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! God has indeed been faithful, and we are grateful.

The trifecta of the pandemic, social unrest, and economic insecurity has significantly impacted us. To address these issues, A Place to Heal Ministries, Inc. is embarking upon a series of Virtual Quarterly Wellness Conferences designed to respond to the effects of the trifecta on the health and well-being of our community. The first in this series is Living & Coping with Stress.

The conference will convene via Zoom on Saturday, September 11, 2021, beginning at 10:00 am. Presenters will explore the topics: 1) trauma, grief, and loss, 2) isolation, and 3) social unrest. With the Lord's help, we will examine how to cope with and alleviate stress. During the conference, we will highlight resources to alleviate stress and practice coping techniques.


We invite you to participate in this virtual conference. You are welcome to register at www.aplacetohealministries.com

A rally for change, a celebration for community.

Worcester Pride is coming back to Worcester, September 8-14, 2021. Pride week is being coordinated by the Queer Coalition of Greater Worcester, a collaborative community initiative working to bring activities supporting LGBTQ+ folx in Central Mass closer together.
https://www.prideworcester.org

Pride Worcester Is Happening -- With Your Help
Mark your calendars for September 8-14, 2021.
Pride Week in Worcester is back this September with some big changes!  Last organized by 21st Century Pride in 2019, this year’s events are being coordinated by the Queer Coalition of Greater Worcester. Founded in 2019, the Coalition is a collaborative community of LGBTQ+ organizations and activists bringing initiatives supporting LGBTQ+ folx in Central MA closer together.
Celebrating Pride and the progress of our LGBTQ+ community includes recognizing the work of marginalized people, both in history and today.  Before and during the pandemic, community members called for change to elevate the experiences of queer and trans people of color and other marginalized identities in our region. Through the Queer Coalition of Greater Worcester, a decentralized, collaborative planning approach with new people at the table endeavors to do just that. The Coalition includes 508 Pride, Love Your Labels, LGBT Asylum Task Force, Queer the Scene, Creative Hub Worcester, many other organizations, and dozens of individuals and activists that represent the diversity of the Greater Worcester community.
None of us are free until all of us are free and liberation does not come without the help of many hands. We need the community’s support to make 2021 Pride Worcester a reality. The Coalition has launched a crowdfunding campaign to ensure this celebration can reach its full potential. Funds will be used for entertainment, event rentals, and permits for a community rally and block party on September 11. Be a part of this important community action by making a donation and sharing PrideWorcester.org on your personal and organizational social media.
Stay tuned as we release a full slate of events, including parties, rallies, community days, and more. Join us in making history by visiting PrideWorcester.org to donate or submit your interest in volunteering or vending at events.


Pride Worcester is coordinated by the Queer Coalition of Greater Worcester, which is convened by Love Your Labels, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in Worcester, MA. Contributions in support of Pride Worcester are tax deductible.

WORCESTER, MA - Audio Journal, Central Massachusetts’ radio reading service for individuals who are visually or print impaired, resumed weekly broadcasts of Vocero Hispano Newspaper, Massachusetts Spanish language newspaper, beginning June 24, 2021.

Audio Journal is fortunate to have two volunteers reading this statewide Spanish newspaper. Prior to the start of the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, Audio Journal broadcast the readings weekly. While restrictions were in place, and safety was paramount, one of those volunteers recorded the program at home for later broadcast. The program aired the first Friday of each month at 3 p.m. Now with readers being able to return to the studios, the program will air every Friday at 3 p.m.

Executive Director, Mary Frandsen, said, “I am happy to continue our collaboration with Vocero Hispano. Connecting visually and print impaired listeners, no matter their native language, to their communities through broadcasting readings of local news is our mission.”

“The collaboration between Vocero Hispano and Audio Journal is an essential part to our community outreach at Vocero Hispano. This service allows us to connect with members of the Hispanic community who are visually or print impaired by expanding our reach and effectiveness in keeping them included and informed. We thank the Executive Director of Audio Journal, Mrs. Mary Frandsen for all her efforts, the readers Mrs. Evelyn Gonzalez and Mr. Larry Smith for their generous service, and the rest of the team at Audio Journal for their roles. We are very excited to resume and reaffirm our collaboration in service of the Hispanic Community.,” said Mr. Pablo D. Santiago, President / CEO of Vocero Hispano Newspaper, Inc.
