St Francis parishioners have long recognized the importance of meeting the needs of our own-in times of illness and for a little extra care for all kinds of reasons.
Donny and Peter Smith have inspired a new in-reach mission we are calling
-just by answering the question.
"What can we do for you"?
In her own wonderful way, Donny said they would love to fill up their freezer with one-quart containers of soup (also, chowder, stews, chilli, etc) while she and Peter continue to recover and re-gain their perky health. These soups will really help to get them them through the long winter without a lot of trouble.
Last Sunday, we had our first discussions about this new project, offered the "one-quart disposable containers with tight freezer lids"-and a signup sheet.
What happened next was just so typically St. Francis...the church turned out...signed up en masse!
Thirty quart containers of every type of soup imaginable will be delivered after our church service to Peter and Donny next Sunday, December 9; their freezer will be humming along again!
An Important Message
As this new program gets going in the new year,
will continue on a quieter scale -with everyone's help.
We need to know whether you (or another one of us) could use this little bit of TLC!
Most especially, we want to keep our parishioners and friends connected to St. Francis with love and a warm bowl of homemade soup!
*Several containers and lids are available in the Sacristy for those who signed up for this first wave of "Souper Saints."
*Please remember to fill in the label with both the item and your name. See you Sunday!
