As a Vincentian University, we are committed to serving the
needy. While many opportunities to do this are offered to students,
Fridays in the Soup Kitchen is available only for staff,
faculty, and administrators.
Through the program, volunteers can choose to provide service at
St. John’s Bread and Life any Friday. Responsibilities include
working in the food line or the food pantry during lunch.
This is a wonderful way to assist in building community in
the workplace, while also helping the poor.
Campus Ministry arranges all transportation to and from the
site, as well as giving volunteers guidance and support. We gather
at the Main Campus Ministry office at 9:15 a.m. and typically
return to campus around 1:30 p.m. To participate, volunteers must
first get approval from their direct supervisors.
If you, your department or even your lunch group is interested in
reserving a spot or the entire date, we will be happy to make the
necessary arrangements. Please list your first, second and third
options, so that we can accommodate you accordingly. Please f
ill out the form below and return to Rafael Rivera in Campus
Ministry. You can also call (718) 990-3354 or contact Rafael
via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to working with you throughout the semester!
“We cannot better assure our eternal happiness than by living and
dying in the service of the poor, in the arms of Providence, and
with genuine renouncement of ourselves in order to follow Jesus
- Vincent de Paul, Dec. 4, 1648
