Easter Eggs for the Soup Kitchen
The St. Joseph’s Soup Kitchen operates each Saturday, with an army of volunteers who serve meals to many needy individuals and families. This weekend, you can help in a special way to bring some joy to the needy who visit our Soup Kitchen by donating brightly colored Easter eggs. If you have time between now and Saturday morning to color and decorate hard-boiled eggs, you may bring them to Casserly Hall (under the church, entrance on Washington Place) on Saturday, April 20 between 10 a.m. and noon.
