A fire on Monday, December 9th, destroyed the home of Brother Ted Stoica.  Thankfully, he and his two daughters (ages 12 and 16) are safe but could use our help as they struggle to make this holiday season a happy one.  In the spirit of the  season, donations (such as gift cards or cash) for the Stoica family are currently being accepted at the Hall.   Your generosity and support would be greatly appreciated.

Alex and Ani: Cease advertising with radio station WPRO as long as habitual misogynist John DePetro remains on the air. On September 27, 2013, WPRO talk radio host John DePetro referred to a number of women demonstrating outside a political event as “W-H-O-R-E-S” (as well as other derogatory terms, including “cockroaches” and “hags”) on the air.  This is not the first time DePetro has made hateful statements against women in a public forum—notably he was dismissed from radio station WRKO in 2006 for calling Massachusetts gubernatorial candidate Grace Ross a “fat lesbian” on his show. He has promoted a “blame the victim” ideology in at least one instance involving the brutal rape and murder of a Massachusetts woman. And earlier this year, he was accused of sexually assaulting a female co-worker. Please click here to read and sign the petition, and share it with your family friends. read more
