Annual Lenten Soup Project   
from Felicity John Odell '88

The Lenten season will be here before we know it. I'm taking this opp o rtunity to ask my alumnae sisters to join in on making this year's Lenten Soup Proje ct a success.  

As you know, Ash Wednesday kicks off Lent.  Each Monday, beginning March 11 through April 15, I will be asking my fellow alums to create delicious soups for the Carondelet faculty.  To make this effort a success we'll need 4 to 6 soups each Monday, serving up to 8 people. Sweet Affair in Walnut Creek has offered to donate freshly baked bread. This is a beautiful staff bonding experience and all monetary contributions from the faculty go to this year's Student Lenten Project.  Sending all of you creative soup making vibes.

Love & light to everyone, Felicity John Odell '88
