Saint Andrew Soup Kitchen

By volunteer Bob Hamel

Now they arrive, individually and as families

Faces smiling some black, some white,

Some brown, some old, some young,

They all came.

Not a soup kitchen!

A celebration of a family

Sharing a meal together.

The love it was evident.

See the faces, see the greetings,

See the excitement, see the “thank you” expressed.

I enjoyed my first day as a volunteer.

Returning each week

Seeing my new friends

Serving lunch to our guests

Observing the acts of kindness given.

Thank you Our Lord for this gift of love and

My new friends at Saint Andrew

Whom I admire.
