Review for Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I used to sing professionally at this church. I was there when the church burned, but the Soup Kitchen didn't miss a beat - they served their clients the very next day despite the disaster. They have continued that tradition for so many years, and I have watched many clients enter hungry and downtrodden, and leave with a smile and a full stomach. And now the added services they offer are inspirig. I read works from the writers workshop with pleasure. I have moved on to another church, and another state, but have continued to admired their work. A few years ago, I brought my youth choir to sing for the guests and we had a great time. Father Bill, the founder, always said the church never really wanted to be in the soup kitchen business, but the reality of the city proved otherwise. He and the staff have faithfully carried out a mission that they wish they didn't have to do.
