Behind the Scenes-We make the majority of our food in house and that includes the cole slaw. On Thursday nights a crew of dedicated souls comes in and peels, cuts, shreds and mixes carrots, cabbage, onions, special sauce, etc… Hundreds of pounds! And then like the mice in a Beatrix Potter book, they clean everythingContinue reading “The Weekly Roundup”

Thank you St. Patrick!
What a lovely night! No rain and it wasn’t too cold! There was a very festive air throughout the Fry. St. Patrick interceded rather nicely for us (Perhaps it was because we put sprinkles on the cakes this week!). Simply put-a night of great fellowship and food! We served over 1000 meals! This year weContinue reading “Thank you St. Patrick!”
One of the cool aspects of our FF is that we have both inside dining and drive-thru (apparently we made p. A-2 of the March 9th CH). The food is the same, the volunteer spirit is the same, but the vibes are different (in a good way). The inside is a little slower paced thanContinue reading “Inside/Outside”
A Rainy Night in VA
Last night was the first Friday of the Month which is the day that our social outreach program distributes food to those in need.

Friday was quite amazing. We were blessed with so many volunteers—some visiting from afar! Thank you to all of them! Our Blessed Virgin Mother was on the minds of many because it was The Feast of the Annunciation, a day for celebration. It was also a day of prayer to Mary.

March 18, 2022-Great Weather, Great Fellowship
On the eve of the Feast of St. Joseph, we welcomed parishioners and members of the community to our fry. Families were able to hang out both inside and out. Some ate outside-picnic style. A few convertibles even had the tops down! It was a great night for community, fellowship, and positivity. May peace comeContinue reading “March 18, 2022-Great Weather, Great Fellowship”

What an energized start! After days of prepping and a short prayer by Father Scalia-the fry began. Logistically-there were a few kinks but at this point our volunteers are expert adapters. Both in-person and drive-thru stations were non-stop. At the end of the night, about 1200 meals were served.
