The Kitchen Mission
The kitchen mission was started by members from St. Martin and St. Paul parishes who wanted to reach out to the people in our community.
We meet once a month and deliver soup, cookies, bread and Christian support to those facing everyday challenges.
It is all volunteer and the reward is great. The hugs, thank yous, etc., that we receive make it all worth while. We have some cancer patients who tell us how much they appreciate the soup (that seems to be the one thing they can eat and enjoy). To have a person's child/children tell you how much their parent enjoys what we deliver and looks forward to our visit lets you know you are doing a good thing.

The story of the Good Samaritan is told by our Lord. It is meant to be understood in the context of what has already been said in Luke chapter 10. You may remember that in praising the Father, Jesus has just said:
“I praise Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou didst hide these things from the wise and intelligent [the scholars] and didst reveal them to babes” (Luke 10:21b).
In the story of the Good Samaritan, it is the scholars—the “wise and intelligent”—who are exposed for what they are (or are not). It will become clear that “these things”—the gospel, the truths of the kingdom of God—are hidden from them. The Samaritan is no scholar at all, but he is the hero of our text. What is the difference between “Samaritans” and “scholars,” in our text, so that the good Samaritan is really “good,” while the religious scholars of our Lord’s day are not? The story of the Good Samaritan helps us to see the difference.
