Please help us help others as we rebuild our kitchen
“Around our table you’ll find a diverse group of people who represent all ages and stages of life. It’s a little bit funky, completely sacred, and a place full of warm welcomes and deep gratitude. Most of all, it has many seats and we are so glad that there is one with your name on it.”
These words encapsulate what we already are and hope to increase in the life of our parish and larger community – a place that welcomes and honors all people, a place of true hospitality and openness. We need your help to support our collective ministry of hospitality. This fall, we are renovating the kitchen with a price tag of $220,000. We are stepping out in faith by beginning the renovation process in early September, and have already engaged an architect, contractors and project manager. Your gift over and above your annual pledge will sustain our hospitality ministries in their many forms, all of which critically rely on a safe and high functioning kitchen.
Amid a serious affordable housing crisis in our City and through all of the ways we extend hospitality in our neighborhood, we have seen the number of meals served each week double over the past three years. Unfortunately, our increasingly high traffic kitchen is in serious need of repair.
Whether you’ve been to the 5pm Community Meal, volunteered at a youth night, participated in Pathways or joined us for our Annual Parish Picnic, you know that we dine with Christ around our sacred tables on the Upper West Side. His love for us is known abundantly in the healing work of a community that eats together.
Our goal is to raise $220,000 before the end of the summer to completely renovate the kitchen and support the ongoing work of hospitality at All Angels’ Church. We hope that you will prayerfully consider giving to be a part of this vision of hospitality for all who walk through our doors and call All Angels home.
