Every year the RCIA hosts one of the Soup Suppers held during Lent on Friday nights at St. Stanislaus. Tonight was our night, and it's always a treat. Not only do we have great soup, we have a lot fun too. We always have Team, Sponsors as well as Candidates and Catechumens. There are always a few "alumni" that stop in as well. That's one of the best parts... it's always good to see old friends.
I especially love the concept of gathering for a meal... free of charge, simple and easy. Events like this are one of the graces of Lent that doesn't feel quite so sacrificial.
