Soup Kitchen Ministry

St. Paul’s is responsible to serve at the Torrington Soup Kitchen, located in the basement of Trinity Church, the second Sunday of every month. Having two teams allows each team to serve only six times per year.

We meet at the soup kitchen between 11:45-12:00 PM; we then prepare the meal which is designated by the soup kitchen director. Before we serve, someone from our team says Grace or asks the patrons if anyone would like to say a prayer. We then serve the meal between 1:00-2:00PM, and then clean up and we are usually done by 2:30PM.

Usually in March we are joined by the upcoming confirmation class. The children prepare home made soup and serve the patrons at the soup kitchen. This is a wonderful ministry for our children to be a part of.

The goal that we have is to simply serve a hot meal to as many people who come through the door that day, and to provide a sense of fellowship. We usually serve around 80 people each Sunday. We leave there with a feeling of giving back to society and thankfulness for what we have in our lives.

    Empty Bowls Correction
    Hi, I am very sorry to inform you that the information about Empty Bowls that I sent last week needs to be corrected. The notice should read:

    Please help us to get the word out about the Empty Bowls Fundraiser to support the work of the Community Kitchen of Torrington. Empty Bowls will be: Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 5-7:30 PM at the Elks Main Ballroom, 70 Litchfield, Street Torrington. The $20 donation/person entitles the donor to a ceramic bowl (while supplies last), and a bowl of soup and bread donated by area restaurants. Dinner alone is $10/person.

    Sorry about the mistake.
