Night Ministry Dinner

Our parish and campus ministry will be partnering to serve dinner with The Night Ministry on Thursday, November 7. 

The greatest need is on our South Side, where very few volunteer groups are willing to serve. We are going to Back of the Yards, where usuallly 150 people show up to be seen by health care workers on the mobile clinic bus. Campus Ministry students will serve dinner to those who are waiting. 

If you would like to help with food preparation, we will be cooking and packaging on the evening of Wednesday, November 6. We’ll start at 5pm. 

It takes a lot of food to feed 150 people! If you want to contribute items, please let either of the pastors know what you are planning to bring. Please plan to drop off fresh food as close to November 6 as possible. Cash is gratefully accepted to buy the items no one claims.

We need:

2 — 5 gallon thermoses for serving chili. We could borrow this if you have one. 

150 bottles of water

Ingredients for chili:

45 lbs. hamburger

2 (6 lb. or #10) cans chili beans
2 (6 lb. or #10) cans kidney beans
3 (6 lb. or #10) cans crushed tomatoes
2 (6 lb. or #10) cans peeled tomatoes
1 (6 lb. or #10) can tomato paste

25 small onions
8 green peppers
3 — 320z cartons beef stock

THANK YOU for helping with this important ministry!
