Friends Reaching Friends
is the mission ministry of Holy Sacrament Episcopal Church. We are involved in community and humanitarian projects, social outreach, construction, and medical services to disadvantaged communities and people, both foreign and domestic.
Over the past 9 years, our two main projects have been Granville Place of Safety for Girls in Jamaica and the church community surrounding San Juan Bautista in Bonao, Dominican Republic.
This year, June 11-June 18, 26 team members will be serving in Jamaica and 16 team members will be serving in the Dominican Republic.
In the Dominican Republic the pediatric medical team anticipates serving over 400 children in the slum areas of Bonao and will provide Vacation Bible School for over 300 children. Additionally, team members will be performing light construction and painting at the church and homes of the parishioners of San Juan Bautista
Members of the Jamaica team will be providing Vacation Bible School to 60 girls at Granville Place of Safety for Girls in located in Falmouth. The medical team will be offering free medical services to the community.
Please keep both mission teams in your prayers. Your prayers are greatly appreciated!
