Saturday Sandwich Making July 2013 - 07/27/13

The parishioners of Sts. Peter & Paul Orthodox Church gathered together during the months of April and July to share their time and lend a hand for a worthy cause. 

Every weekend in April and July, the volunteers devoted themselves to making over 700 sandwiches and bag lunches per month for the needy of Hudson County.  Sandwiches were brought weekly to the St. Lucy Shelter in Jersey City, and 100 bag lunches—containing sandwiches, water and a snack-- were handed out each Saturday to the guests of the Cluster Soup Kitchen housed at Our Lady of the Assumption Roman Catholic Church in Bayonne, NJ.

  The parishioners of Sts. Peter & Paul wish to express their gratitude to the warm and welcoming volunteers from St. Andrew’s Roman Catholic Church who oversaw the administration of the soup kitchen during both months. The parish plans to continue this worthwhile initiative in the future. It is very inspiring for all involved to be able to work in the spirit of Christian unity with our brothers and sisters from another Christian denomination, but it is the needy of Bayonne who benefit the most.
