Dinner on the Hill Team
2020 Pillar of Stewardship Award Winner
All Saints has been awarded a 2020 Pillar of Stewardship Award from the Archdiocese in the category of “participation.” We are being recognized specifically for our response to the limitations of the COVID-19 pandemic by shifting Dinner on the Hill to a curbside and delivery model.
Many of you know we sponsor "Dinner on the Hill" - a free monthly meal for people at All Saints and the broader community. Typically, 70-75 people attend inside to stretch their family food budget, have at least one meal a month with others, and/or to be a part of the parish community.
When the pandemic hit, staff and parishioner leadership partnered with the Knights of Columbus to transform the ministry to curbside pick-up and added a delivery service to nearby senior apartments. This new partnership now serves 500+ meals with more than 100 of those being delivered to seniors each month. An estimated 50% of those picking up curbside are not parishioners. In addition to working at the event, parishioners have also stepped forward with generous contributions to financially support this expansion. Congratulations to the Dinner on the Hill team and Mission Partners for their generosity to our community during this difficult time.
