Feeding Bodies - Nourishing Spirits - Strengthening Communities

Thank you for joining us as we journey through life with our Capuchin Soup Kitchen guests, volunteers, and partners in ministry.  Often it's easy to forget that we each have a story to tell.  Our blog is to help remind all of us that each individual at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen is a gift from God and we have much to learn from one another.  To contact us about the blog email us here:

No Power and No Gas

It started off as a bad day; in fact, it had started bad already yesterday with a deluge that left our streets flooded and downed trees snapping power lines everywhere. I arrived home to a darkened, electricity-deprived house, there would be no reading or television watching this night. Morning brought more frustration.


Healthy Environment for Growth

Br. Jerry and I frequently compare garden notes. Recently, he was pointing out some plants that were not thriving because of the poor soil.


Building Community

It has occurred to me lately how many ways people form community. I am so inspired by those who instill right relationships within family, neighborhood and city.


Belle Isle State Park Visit

The Rosa Parks Youth Peace Garden Participants just took an amazing trip to the Belle Isle State Park to visit their Anna Scripps Whitcomb Conservatory and Belle Isle Aquarium. Our youth were amazed at how many exotics plants were in the conservatory.  We also had an amazing lunch prepared by our Conner kitchen staff and then enjoyed a huge game of freeze tag. It was a highly educational trip and a lot of fun.
