All Are Welcome! During Lent, my Parish hosts a Friday Lenten Soup Supper. Parishioners and friends gather, bringing together their own recipes of meatless soups during Lent to share a meal together. We talk and pray, and after dinner we all go pray the Stations of the Cross afterwards. It has been a tradition during Lent that I have come to love. Unfortunately, in 2020, COVID hit and put an end to our Lenten Soup Suppers. So in 2021, I decided that for Lent I would make 40 soups in 40 days. I asked friends and family to provide me with soups they loved so I could research and create the very best soup recipes. I then spent all of Lent, (and a few weeks after) perfecting 40 different soups everyone can enjoy. It was a Lenten Journey I will never forget and one that brought peace to my heart while filling the stomachs of those I love.
