Vegucated
THE ADULT MINISTRY HOSTS A VERY SPECIAL SCREENING...
LENTEN FOOD FIGHT: CARNAVORES VS VEGANS

During Lent the Church asks us to fast and abstain from meat in order to put us in touch with the spiritual and moral choices we make with the food we eat. Prepare for this season by attending Vegucated, a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet's fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture. Can their convictions carry them through when times get thought? What about family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets? Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darned est to change in a culture that seems dead set against it.

A lively discussion will follow the film. Feel free to bring your dinner.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27 AT 7 PM

St. Francis Step and Breakfast Ministry - Your Spirit and Welcoming Presence is needed

Step Ministry VolunteerThis very special ministry is in need of volunteers. Our Step Ministry provides a safe, peaceful and private place for our guests to sleep each night at the Parish Center courtyard. This ministry is rooted in scripture and responds to the call to welcome strangers, provide shelter to the wanderer, and not turn away from the needs of others.

As a Step Minister you would have the opportunity to serve as a welcoming presence for our Step guests as they arrive in the evening or, as a Breakfast Minister, help to provide a simple prepared breakfast before they leave to face the challenges of their day. The time commitment is 5:45 pm to 7:30 pm for the Step Ministry OR 5:30 am to 7:00 am for the Breakfast Ministry. Most Step Ministers commit to one evening a week, and Breakfast Ministers for two mornings a month. However, we are happy to try to create a schedule that works for you! Please contact us if you are interested in becoming a part of the Step/Breakfast Ministry family. We would love to have you join us.

"Homeless not only from the room made of bricks, but homeless from being rejected, unwanted, completely torn out of society....that unwanted one is my brother and my sister....We belong to each other." — Mother Theresa

If you would like more information, or have questions about how you can volunteer for this wonderful ministry, please contact Margaret (margaret@cafoodlink.org).
