Ash Wednesday Soup Suppers

Ash Wednesday
March 2
7:00am, Noon*, 5:30pm* 
Eucharist with the Distribution of Ashes

(*livestream)

 

After a COVID-19 hiatus, we are pleased to offer two opportunities for fellowship, community, and soup on Ash Wednesday (March 2, 2022).

  • Please join us after Mass, either at 1:00pm or 6:30pm in the Teresa of Calcutta Hall (lower level of the church).
  • Pre-registration is appreciated for planning, and capacity is about 100 people to allow for some distancing.
  • Guests are encouraged to wear a face mask other than when actively eating/drinking at their table.
  • The event is free, but offerings are accepted. To register for either soup event, please click here.

Please also bring canned soup with you on Ash Wednesday to support our neighbors who utilize St. Olaf Church's Food Pantry in downtown Minneapolis. They especially appreciate hearty soups, chili, or stew, or any other shelf-stable canned items. Look for receptacles in church for your canned food donations.
