“God loves a cheerful giver.”
--2 Corinthians 9:7
Each month, on the tenth day of the month, parishioners of St. Gabriel provide free meals for the needy at Saints Peter and Paul Parish, 1919 South 7th Street in the Historic Soulard Neighborhood. These nutritious, tasty meals are served to the residents of the shelter, as well as to needy families in the area, who may be on limited or fixed incomes. Guests may number 200 men, women, and children each day.
Volunteers from many parishes take turns preparing and serving the meals. St. Gabriel Parish is responsible for the 10th of the month; however, parishioners also volunteer to serve on the 7th of the month. If this rewarding work appeals to you, please feel free to join us! We need volunteers for the 7th of every month!
You’ll have your choice of jobs: cooking, serving, cleaning up after serving, or visiting with our guests. Guaranteed, you’ll feel good when you leave!
