On Saturday, February 3rd, some members of Soup Kitchen Team 4 (Team Leaders Bruni Edwards and Yvonne Ruddy-Stein, Joanne Davidson, the Parr Family, the Boninsinga/Twombly Family, Ali Haffner) will be returning to the Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen on Spring Street to help serve take-out meals that were cooked in volunteers’ homes as well as bagged sandwiches for lunches and breakfasts and hot lunches for Pacific House also prepared in volunteers’ homes as well as through donations. Unfortunately, we are not yet able to serve the guests a meal inside because of the Covid pandemic.

You can also help feed our neighbors with a gift card in any amount from any local supermarket.. Lynn Taborsak has also been scheduling the sandwich donations so we have just the right amount each day at Dorothy Day Soup Kitchen. If you are interested in making sandwiches, please email her at We can all be an important part of the fight to end hunger in our community!

In the past couple of years, we have lost some of our Dorothy Day volunteers. Please consider volunteering to be on a DD Team – it only involves a few hours, 3 Saturdays per year. You will find it to be a very rewarding experience. Please contact Judy Lacker for more information or to sign up.

We have resumed collecting non-perishable food donations on Sunday mornings. Please place your food donations in the basket in the foyer. You can sign up to help transport the weekly collection to The Dorothy Day Hospitality House on Spring Street.

From the Sunday Services Ministry Team

The Sunday Services team is planning a service in April, which centers around the 7th principle – Interdependence. We’d like to alternate poetry and music on this theme. If you’d like to present a poem you’ve written related to the interdependence web of existence, or one that someone else has written, please contact Mary Ann Kulla.  If there is music that might work, we welcome that too. 

Our Caring Circle is Available

Our ‘Care Coordinator’ receives requests and answers questions for the Caring Circle.

Please note that your call will be returned as quickly as possible but it may be at the end of the day.
