Old St. Pat’s parishioners donate commercial stove to soup kitchen

Old St. Pat's Parish’s Outreach Ministry paid for a new commercial oven and its installation for Frieda’s Place, a soup kitchen and outreach ministry it has long had a relationship with. Parishioners regularly donate food and serve meals at Sunday brunches and have provided Christmas gifts, Easter baskets, winter clothing and accessories and other on-going donations.
