500 Soup Kitchen Sandwiches Made in 1 Hour

The Knights Wrecking Crewe and the Friday evening Hispanic Rosary Group collectively made 500 sandwiches Friday, September 5th, for distribution at the St. Francis Soup Kitchen at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Atlanta. Knights Don Connor (and wife Carol), Tom Carney (and daughter Katy), Eugene Vigil, Eric Peralta, Riley Lawhorn, Pedro Aguilar, Tom Probst (and wife Gabriela) and Don Cirino, along with 8 members of the Rosary Group, manned two assembly lines to prepare and bag 500 sandwiches in a little over one hour. Every 1st Friday, with the assistance of other Holy Cross ministries, the Wrecking Crewe makes sandwiches starting at 7:00pm in the Holy Cross kitchen. The following morning, a group leaves Holy Cross at 8:30am to not only deliver the sandwiches, but serve the homeless. On Saturday morning, September 6th, Tom Carney, Miguel Zumaran and Don Connor worked at the Soup Kitchen, serving meals and cleaning tables for the area homeless in and around the Shrine. If you or your Ministry are interested in assisting, please contact Don Conner or Ken Farnsworth at communications@kofccouncil10355.org. The next Sandwich Ministry will take place October 3/4th.
