soups onIn this case, the fourth time was the charm. On March 8, over 150 parishioners packed into the St. Thomas Moore Hall for the Confirmation program's fourth annual "Soup for a Cause" event. It was by far our most successful year yet, both in terms of attendance and money raised: $1,100, for the House of Bread's Kids Cafe in Hartford.

The attendees had the chance to enjoy soups from area restaurants and food services - Sadler's, Three Fellas, Bricco's, Plan B, Joey Garlic's, Mangiafique, Personal Chef & Catering-as well as from the kitchens of our hometown chefs (including Fr. Sas and Deacon John). Even better: they had the chance to see our extraordinary ninth grade Confirmation candidates in action. The candidates have done incredible work throughout the year- volunteering for the church picnic, making blankets for the homeless, and assembling furniture for Hartford's "A Hand Up" program. But on this particular night, while dressed sharply in their white shirts and black bow ties, they demonstrated their devotion to the church and the community through their tireless work and positive attitude. We could not have been more proud of them.
 
Thank you to everyone involved in this evening-the attendees, the members of the parish who donated food, and the young adults who worked so hard to make the night a success. Can't wait for Soup for a Cause #5!
