Culinary Angels is an Outreach ministry at Church of the Holy Spirit that provides prepared meals to clients of "Family Promise" in Flemington. This non-profit organization of congregations in Hunterdon County ministers to the needs of homeless women and their families. The Culinary Angels group assist Family Promise by providing meals for families transitioning out of homelessness. Currently, we are providing meals for about 80 people for Family Promise.
Culinary Angels also prepare meals to put in the "Holy Spirited freezer" for distribution to our Holy Spirit family and friends in need.
The Culinary Angels group meets in the Parish kitchen every first and third Monday of the month at 5 p.m. Check the CHS weekly news or the Sunday Bulletin for any updates or changes.
There are four ways that you can participate in this important ministry:
