The Cathedral Food Ministry IS HERE!

Have you ever come home from the hospital after a procedure or after having a baby or ever been in need of some TLC? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you DID NOT HAVE TO COOK?!! That’s what the Cathedral Food Ministry does. We take the burden off by delivering a few meals to those going through challenging times. This announcement is to let you know that we exist if you need us or you know someone who does and to encourage you to be a part of the Food Ministry. Please contact Fay in the Cathedral office at fchandler@stlukescathedral for more information.
