This Easter Sunday, hundreds of men, women and children will eat their holiday meal in our Open Hand Kitchen. Although the plates of ham, turkey, potatoes and salad (along with snack-sized bags of jellybeans) will feed their bodies, many of these hungry people also yearn for nourishment of the soul. That’s why dozens of St. Vincent de Paul’s loyal donors have signed special messages of encouragement on colorful paper placemats that will be given to each guest. Here is a sampling of their well-wishes:
Remembering you with a prayer that God will always keep you in His perfect peace.
Truly, this was the Son of God. Mark 15:39
Happy Easter! May this holy season bring you joy and hope!
Every day is a gift, bright with promise,Generous with beauty, and filled with sunshine. Even when it is raining.
