During the six weeks of the Lenten Season before Easter, parishioners and guests of Christ the King (downtown Sudbury’s largest and oldest Catholic Church in the Sudbury region, serving families since 1917) were treated to a special fundraiser of a soup lunch with donations going towards the Blue Door Soup Kitchen. Each Friday, a variety of delicious soups were made and served to anyone who showed up. In total, the church raised $2,552.25 to donate to and assist the great work of the Blue Door Soup Kitchen. The Blue Door Soup Kitchen was founded in 1982, by two Christ the King parishioners, Kaireen and Roger Crichton, and this organization provides a free meal to approximately 300-350 persons of all ages, each weekday. The soup kitchen is located at 344 Elgin St. and is open from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. From left to right is Marc Leduc, second-vice-president, Frank Scappatura, first-vice president, Ted Szilva, president of the Blue Door Soup Kitchen, Jim Cook, president, and Mario Timpano of Christ the King’s Men’s club, Mary Diamond, president, and Florence McKee of Christ the King’s Catholic Women’s League (CWL), and Father Brian Dixon, Pastor of the Church of Christ the King.
