Victoria's Kitchen Opens

The Religious of the Good Shepherd launched a new ministry at the Good Shepherd Center at Holy Cross Church on St. Croix on August 25. Named for Sr. Victoria Andreoli, RGS, who in 2010 returned to New York after 12 years on St. Croix, Victoria’s Kitchen is a weekly breakfast program for the homeless and the needy. Twenty-nine guests attended the first breakfast.
“When we learned that the local breakfast program is closed on Thursday, we realized there was a need in the community and we began planning to address it,” said Sr. Judy Mannix, RGS.
“On hearing about Victoria’s Kitchen,” added Sr. Digna Rivas, RGS, “parishioners approached us and asked how they could help. We are truly blessed with so many generous volunteers and benefactors who serve God’s people with such love.”
