Each Friday during Lent, a service group for the parish sponsors Soup Supper. Parishioners and guests can grab delicious homemade soups and bread starting at 6 p.m. Over in the church, Father Harris hears confessions until 7 p.m., when visitors to the Proto-Cathedral of St. James the Greater can participate in Stations of the Cross. On Friday, March 10, the Historical Society hosted the supper. More than 100 people attended.
