Together New Orleans is a broad-based coalition of congregations and community-based organizations in the greater New Orleans area, with the capacity to address community problems large and small. The coalition is deliberate about crossing the lines of race, religion, neighborhood, and political affiliation. We work on issues affecting families and communities, and we are a strictly non-partisan organization.
Together New Orleans has three basic goals:
to build relationships across our community based on trust and a willingness to listen to each other,
to equip our members and leadership with skills and practices to get results, and
to achieve change on concrete issues, as part of our common call to justice.
St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church is a member of the Carrollton/St. Charles group. The meetings are currently on zoom and meet monthly for 90mins. For more information or to register to participate, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Ben Dubroc.
Are you seeking comfort and healing after the death of a love one?
The ministry of Walking the Mourner’s Path seeks to serve individuals who are in grief through a series of Eight Weekly Workshops.
Together in the small group workshops individuals:
– Acknowledge the pain and brokenness
– Recognize that each journey through grief is unique
– Share stories
– Experience both tears and laughter
– Find Healing and Joy
“Together we do what I cannot do alone.”

St. Andrew's believes that it is not necessary to always reinvent the wheel. Rather, when someone is doing something well, we are called to work with and support...not always run. This is why we are pleased to support the work of Mt. Zion United Methodist Church's ministry to the hungry. We send a team from St. Andrew's monthly to work and demonstrate God's care for the poor.
St. Andrew's as a dedicated team of volunteers who make sandwiches for Mt. Zion's ministry on the second Tuesday of every month at 11:30 AM at Chalstrom House.
For more information or to express an interest in joining a ministry team, email Mary Perkins.
The Episcopal Prison Ministry (Church of the Transfiguration) at the Louisiana State Penitentiary (Angola) is sustained by both lay and ordained volunteers, who visit the prison to conduct worship services, teach classes, and most importantly, to make manifest the love of Christ by reaching out to build relationships and show concern for “the least of these” (Matt 25:40). As many will attest, the ministry that occurs is never unidirectional (i.e. from us to them), but rather, both groups find Christ in the other. In 2002, Episcopal volunteers began leading a Disciples of Christ in Community program (DOCC) at Angola – the first time a DOCC program has been offered to incarcerated persons.

New Orleans Community Fridge is a mutual aid effort that provides a network to empower our neighbors in supporting each other through the offering of free food in Community Fridges. With the presence of Community Fridges, everyone has the opportunity to provide and to receive collective care as we work towards dismantling the systems that oppress us. No one is fed, until everyone is fed.
NOCF has been adapting existing models, heavily inspired by NYC and Los Angeles, to create networks that specifically support our New Orleans communities.
St. Andrew's is working to keep the fridge at 8511 Hickory stocked. If you are interested in participating, email Ben Dubroc. For more information about this NOCF, click here. We meet at Chalstrom House's kitchen at noon every Monday to prepare meals for delivery to the fridge at 3 PM.
