Seel Street Soup Kitchen
The Chaplaincy has had a long association with the Missionary of Charity Sisters at Seel Street. The sisters have regular soup Kitchens at 10:30 on Mondays, 11am on Tuesdays and Fridays and 4pm on Sundays. The sisters especially expect students on Fridays and a group normally walk down from St Philips at 10:45am. We are also regulary involved with Night Fever at the sisters.
Members of the chaplaincy meet regularly at 6pm on Wednesdays to prepare Sandwiches and hot drinks to share with the homeless in the city centre. This has been a simple and effective way to share what we have with other; Both in a material way and also in terms of faith and friendship.
At the chaplaincy we try to support the work and campaigns of CAFOD and have been involved in some recent campaigns organised by the comitees CAFOD rep!! Look at the CAFOD website for more infomation. www.cafod.org.uk
