"SOUP-ER" ENTERPRISE

Something's cooking, and it's hamburger barley

A portrait of the Holy Trinity soup-making crew: Its efforts finance meals for shut-ins.

A shower of split peas cascades into a pot at the start of production of the popular split pea and ham soup, which is one of the Holy Trinity soup crew's most sought-after offerings.

The proceeds of the soup sales benefit Holy Trinity's efforts to provide meals to shut-ins.

Vegetables that have been finely chopped await their future as soup. Holy Trinity's soup is popular with parishioners and area residents alike. What's your favorite? Vote on the order form on the right of the page.

Is there soup today?

When, in normal times, Father Chattin poses that question at Saturday and Sunday Masses, the response from a few pews down the aisle is a resounding "yes."

There have been as many as six in the crew - five soup makers and a sixth who helps label and pack the orders. Most of the volunteers have been cooking chicken noodle, hamburger barley, split pea and ham, tortellini, chili and others in our kitchen for the last four years.

With the closing of the church building in March 2020 by the bishop as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, soup-making stopped, and the kitchen was closed for several months.

That changed in October 2020 with production of the ever-popular hamburger barley. December featured chicken noodle, and cream of tomato was February 2021's offering.

The order form is on the right, and can be filled out and emailed to the church office.

Prices are $4 a pint and $7 a quart.

Thank you for your support.

Homemade Soup Is Back

Please support our soup ministry now that we are back at the stove. We have been starting slowly, with a new offering every other month, so that we can adhere to state, federal and diocesan safety guidelines.

For October, it is hamburger barley, available for $4 a pint and $7 a quart. You can order online or by calling the church office. There is also delicious cheese tortellini available in the freezer.

Please pay by cash, check or Vanco

Which soup would you like us to offer next: split pea, beef chili, cheese tortellini, chicken noodle, or tomato bisque? See the order form to choose.
