Outdoor Mass Help – People are needed to setup for mass and breakdown afterwards, to greet cars as they arrive, and to ensure a safe parking experience by directing traffic.

If you can help, or would like more information, please click here to Get Involved.


Buildings & Grounds and Adopt-A-Garden need volunteers to share their talents.  Watering gardens, pulling weeds, planting flowers, repairing crosses for Stations, testing emergency systems, straightening out the garage – there are a multitude of smaller tasks you could help with if you volunteer. Contact the rectory at 978 443-8981 or click here to Get Involved. Don’t delay! Not because the work will disappear, but because the work will NOT disappear, unless you share your talents.

Church Environment

Working in the church when there is no one in it, is a lovely experience! If you are looking to help St Anselm, one ministry is vacuuming the main church. We have a small group now but we could benefit from a couple more members. Consider a parent-child team. It’s a nice ministry to introduce to your high school student or confirmation candidate. The commitment is once every 2 or 3 months. Please call the rectory for more information or click here to Get Involved.


Car Packers and Drivers– People are needed to help pack the car and drivers are needed to deliver the food to Daniel’s Table in Framingham.  The time commitment is a couple of hours every 3 weeks on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday between the hours of 10am – 2pm.

Food Sorters – Food items are sorted on Monday or Tuesday mornings and it usually takes about an hour. You can sign up for as many or as few shifts as fits your schedule.

Livestream Mass– The communications team is seeking people to help livestream the Saturday Vigil Mass and other services or events. Equipment and training is provided.  Simply arrive a a half hour before mass and that’s it. Volunteer on a regular basis or help out as needed. Please consider helping out in this important outreach ministry especially in these uncertain times.

Social Media– Do you like taking pictures on your iPhone? Recording videos? Making social media posts? We need your help!

Prayer Shawl Ministry

St. Anselm’s Prayer Shawl Ministry, “The Common Threads”, provides prayer shawls, lap robes, and Baptismal blankets to those in our community and beyond. The act of wrapping another in a shawl knit of your own prayers and thoughts is not only a gift to the one receiving a shawl but for the creator of it as well. The Prayer Shawl Ministry meets the 3rd Saturday of the month. If you are interested in learning more, please call the rectory at 978-443-8981.
