The Community garden
We make available space on our property so that people can plant gardens. In return, we ask that some of the harvest be donated to the Parsippany Food Pantry. If you are interested in a garden plot, please email our Admin for St. Gregory’s application and garden rules.
We collect non-perishable food and fresh vegetables from our Community garden for the panty.
Are collected in August and September for needy school-age children and distributed through Parsippany Social Services.
Episcopal Relief & Development Fund
We support the efforts of the Episcopal Relief & Development Fund which provides aid and disaster relief around the world. The parish focuses on E.R.D. as a spiritual discipline during Lent and responds when a natural disasters strike and works to alleviate poverty worldwide.
The Memorial garden
We are a support church for this important ministry to house homeless families that takes place at the First Baptist Church. We provide meals, resources and any type of support requested.
The first Sunday in October is the blessing of the animals where we collect canned pet food for the animal shelter.
Third Sunday of the month, people at St. Gregory’s volunteer to make and serve dinner for the men staying at St. Paul’s Shelter in Paterson. At Christmas time, each resident is given the gift of a sweatshirt.
This is a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark Porch, an organization that provides aid and assistance to women and children in need.. Our church supports this effort with a Christmas “mitten tree” and a “baby shower” held on Mother’s Day baby in which baby supplies, food, and clothes are collected.
Morris County Social Services
At Christmas, the names and ages of a family in need from the Morris County Social Services agency is provided to the parish. The parish then joins together to buy and wrap gifts which are delivered in time to provide a needy family a very Merry Christmas
In the fall, we collect new and used coats for Market Street Mission in Morristown that hands out the coats to adults and children in need.
