When Father Chattin poses that question at Saturday and Sunday Masses, the response from a few pews down the aisle is a resounding "yes."
There have been as many as six in the crew - five soup makers and a sixth who helps label and pack the orders. Most of the volunteers have been cooking chicken noodle, hamburger barley, split pea and ham, tortellini, chili and others in our kitchen for the last four years.
With the closing of the church building in March 2020 by the bishop as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, soup-making stopped, and the kitchen was closed for several months.
That changed in October 2020 with production of the ever-popular hamburger barley. December featured chicken noodle, and cream of tomato was February 2021's offering.
Prices are $4 a pint and $7 a quart, and April will feature cheese tortellini, which is a vegetarian offering and m-m-m wonderful!
Thank you for your support, and don't forget to get your order to the church office by April 18.
For security purposes, when you click "submit," an email with your order will appear with Holy Trinity's email address in the send field. Just hit send.
