Soup - – We have had a very busy May for the distribution of soup to our neighbors and those in need. So far we have had 30 people in for soup which is double the normal amount. As a result our soup stock (ha! a pun!!!) is low. This is a call out to all soup makers – please refill our freezer with your amazing soups. Soup can be dropped off during office hours, Wednesday to Friday 10 – 1 and there are lots of containers in the church kitchen if you need them.
Our regular visitors always say how good our soups are – pat on the back soup makers of St. Paul’s
