Ms. Helen's Soup Kitchen



Deacon Paul Matte

Deacon Paul joined us as the the manager and caretaker of Ms. Helen's Soup Kitchen (located at 717 W. Seventh Street) last year.  He has a dedication to service to all, and strives for excellence in his proclamation of the Gospel as he feeds the hungry both in word and deed.
Ms. Helen's began as a place for the hungry to go on a regular basis, and serves approximately 200 meals a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  Deacon Paul is always eagerly looking for volunteers to help cook, serve and help clean up.  Serving the poor of our community is a service of welcoming the presence of Christ in our lives in a unique and tangible manner.
