Simply Soup



"Simply Soup"

a concrete (delicious and nutritious) expression of our parish mission: "where one can feel the loving embrace of God". Our work is directed to "feeding the hungry" as our Lord asks in the Gospel.

Volunteer parishioners provided over 1,900 containers of soup to Catholic Charities in Rio Grande and Lazarus House in Wildwood for distribution to the families and individuals they serve.

The soup is made fresh each month in the kitchen in our Parish Hall. Volunteers devoted over 400 hours of service in preparing, packaging, and delivering the soup. For this work of mercy, donations came in other forms as well. This money was used for pots, pans, kitchenware, produce, and soup package materials (microwavable containers, plastic utensils, napkins, crackers, and labels). Several local businesses contributed by offering produce for free or at a reduced price.

Charity extended beyond our parish. Faith and good works reveal God's active presence in our community. "Simply Soup"  was a welcomed and fruitful ministry.

We will continue the mission. We invite your participation. "Many hands make work light".

  • We ask for your prayers.

  • Perhaps you would like to become a volunteer.

  • You may be moved to contribute money to this cause to pay for supplies.

We are grateful to God and to all of you for the wonderful and generous outpouring of support. In the name of Jesus, you bring to life our faith, our parish mission and so add goodness to the lives of our neighbors in need.
