Partnering with St. Vincent DePaul
We are a “tuna church”. We collect tuna, and other non-perishables, to donate to St. Vincent DePaul’s food pantry.
We cook and serve dinner twice a year at St. Vincent DePaul’s soup kitchen.
We provide the space, and they provide the supervision, for the Warming Center (formerly known as Fabian’s Place). We are on a rotating schedule with two other churches to open our doors from 8:30 p.m. at night until 7a.m. the following morning during the cold winter months.
Here is this year’s schedule:
South Congregational Church, 9 Pleasant St. –
Sun., Nov. 19–Sat., Dec. 9, 2017, Wed., Mar. 7 to Sat., Mar. 31, 2018.
