The Saturday Works Project

We are excited to bring another weekend of volunteering to you this year!

On Friday, November 10 and Saturday, November 11 (Veterans Day) Saturday Works is teaming up with Mary, Queen of the Apostles parish in Salem, Massachusetts, and the Notre Dame Club of Greater Boston, to encourage and support their parishioners and members in serving those in need in the Greater Salem area and beyond (Dorchester, Stoughton, North Andover, and Lawrence)!

*Inspired by the week-long Family Volunteer camp (learn more about that here) organized by the Notre Dame Alumni Association on the campus of the University of Notre Dame, our event brings that experience "on the road", with two days of volunteering, social events, and Mass.

 

There are 3 things for you to do:

  1. invite your family, friends, and co-workers to serve with you.

  2. sign up for multiple service activities over the two days.

  3. join us for our community partner fair, closing Mass, and dinner on Saturday.

We have commitments with over 15 community partners! See below for highlights of this year's event!

Online registration is LIVE! The button below will send you to our GivePulse platform for registration. 

For more information about the GivePulse platform, see our platform information here.

Support this event through a donation to Mary, Queen of the Apostles (MQOA) parish. All proceeds will be used for the event. Any surplus will be distributed by MQOA to the participating community partners. Thank you for your support.
