Earlier this year, our CWL council teamed up with St. Joseph’s Youth Group to make ‘Sandwiches for the Soul’ and distribute them to the needy on Vancouver’s downtown eastside. The event was a success; it brought two parish groups together and taught us all a lesson in teamwork, helping others, and the struggles that some of our neighbours face.
On Saturday, November 17th, 2012, the CWL and the Youth group joined forces once again to make sandwiches and package them up with veggies, and a sweet treat. The sandwiches were whipped up with much friendly competition to produce the fastest assembled lunch (45 seconds being the record set). The youth with some parents then went out into Vancouver’s downpour to deliver the meals to those in need.
