St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church in Dover, Massachusetts is reprising a reverse Halloween the parish tried out last year – Holy Ghosting. The Patriot Ledger:
For those unfamiliar with the practice, it’s trick-or-treating in reverse: treats are anonymously left on the doorstep for recipients. Last year, St. Dunstan’s Episcopal Church thought it would be fun to put a spin on the idea and use this Halloween tradition as a means to raise money and awareness for A Place to Turn food pantry in West Natick, putting the Holy in Ghosting, and “Holy Ghosting” was born.
It was a big hit, with more than $1,100 raised for A Place to Turn.
Parishioners have underwritten the program – to be involved, one places an order for a treat to be delivered to an individual or family:
For a suggested donation, parishioners will do the ghosting (during the day). Each package will contain a small treat, a note letting the person/family know that a donation has been made to A Place to Turn in their honor, and a small ghost letting people know St. Dunstan’s is doing this to support A Place to Turn, as well as information on the church.
Order forms are on the church website.
