For anyone who is new this year, our Soup Suppers are a very popular event with the parish. We begin the evening with a short (kid-friendly) prayer service in the church, which includes a brief presentation by a representative of the charity that we are sponsoring with the proceeds from the Suppers. Then we move to the Social Hall for a smorgasbord of delicious soups and hearty breads, provided by the families of the grades that are sponsoring the supper for that evening.
We ask that anyone attending the supper donate at least what their family would have spent for dinner that night. And feel free to go back for seconds….and thirds!
The lineup for which grades sponsor which evening are as follows:
Evenings of shared prayers, delicious soups and hearty bread begins at 5:45pm

Each year we sponsor a local charity. This year we are partnering with our sister parish in the city, St James Midtown, to support some of their outreach efforts to the poor and marginalized. We’ll put the spotlight on several of their ministries like their Bus Stop ministry and their new thrift store. St James was built in 1906 and has always been a center of outreach to the Troost corridor. Situated as they are right on top of the major cross-town bus routes, they have a unique ability to reach people from a wide area in the city. And with our unique partnership, and our shared pastor (yay Fr Mike!) we have the added benefit of knowing that our efforts will pay off in the long term.
