The FREE FOOD, FRIENDSHIP, and FAITH event runs June 13, 2019 – July 25, 2019. The St. Raphael Reaching For Faith Committee sponsors this event. Parishioner volunteers serve a free hot dog meal to people in the community. This event is a way to re-introduce the Church of St. Raphael to individuals and families in the ever-changing neighborhood around us. We offer a free hot dog meal to everyone who comes, and we have an opportunity to visit and get to know one another. So far this season (June 13-July 11) we have served 101 free hot dog meals and have met several wonderful people. When we’ve sufficiently broken the ice, the Holy Spirit moves the conversations and we usually get to tell people how awesome the Church of St. Raphael is, and, in general the Catholic Faith. We humbly ask your prayers, that the Holy Spirit continues to soften hearts and open eyes, ears and hearts to the truth, wisdom, mercy and friendship of our Lord and Savior. And that many more are drawn to the attend the remaining Thursdays through July 25th.
The event is held outside on the front lawn in nice weather; and is held inside in the upper east gathering area when it is raining.
