Free Food July 13

July 15, 2023

We had a large crowd, approximately 40 and ran out the hot dogs that we thought we were likely use.  That is a great problem to have as we had leftovers our previous weeks.

We again had return "customers", and two of those were turned away due to lack of hot dogs (but they also arrived about 5 minutes before "closing").

Phil's Spanish again came in handy when a couple from Ecuador almost left due the language barrier issue.  He explained that we have a small community of Spanish speakers who usually attend the 10:30 am Sunday Mass and invited them to attend Sunday Mass here.

A new community group is meeting at our parish and they were invited to stop by before their meeting.  Several of them did and since the group has a fair number of Protestants, it was an opportunity to show that Catholics can be welcoming, too.
