OLS Sodality Cooks Up Comfort

At Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church, Jayne Amerime, Fran Robertson, Mary Catherine Kew, Beth Tighe, and Maria Lilly are among the dozens of Women’s Altar Sodality members working together to prepare homemade meals to 150 parishioners. Every October and February the ladies cook and deliver meals to bless the parish’s sick, shut-ins, new mothers, and others who need comfort. On Oct. 18, the women began preparations to provide two dinners for each recipient that included poppy seed chicken casserole, salad, and dessert. The meals ministry is not just about feeding the body, according to Robertson who has helped to organize the meals ministry for years. “It’s not all about the food. It’s a comfort, and they know we’ve been thinking about them,” she explained.
