We meet five times during the season (September, November, January, March and May) for a 7:00 pm session.

We needed 40+ volunteers to cook, bake, prep, and serve the Sunday Night Supper at St. Vincent de Paul in Middletown and YOU answered the call! The meals of meatloaf, potatoes, fresh vegetables, and cookies were a big hit. Please know you touched, affirmed and shared love with the patrons - you did what Jesus asks us to do as His hands and heart here on earth.
Many, many thanks!
