SJOG Meal Ministry (Soup Kitchen):
Our Parish provides a free meal for those on a limited or fixed income on the second and fourth Thursday of the month from 5-5:30pm. We don’t have homeless in the Somerset/Swansea area, but there are many who can not afford a full and healthy meal seven days a week. This meal is also intended for the elderly who might eat alone. We are having posters and wallet sized cards printed about this meal ministry. If you know anyone in this situation please tell them about us, and give them a card. If you know of a place where we should advertise this ministry please speak with Fr. Fred or call the rectory.
