Freebie Friday at St. Hilda’s

Filed under: St. Hilda's — David Jenkins @ 7:32 pm

Every Friday St. Hilda’s ANiC feeds about 200 schoolchildren; they hear a short gospel message and sometimes they ask for prayer.

Friday was the last Freebie Friday before the summer.

200 hotdogs were served, some wonderful bread from Artisano’s – peanut butter, lots of potato chips, and fruit punch.

Three of the ladies were celebrating their last Freebie Friday as they head off to Western, Waterloo, and Mac next year, and one of the boys is going into the Coast Guard  Service.

In the first batch of kids were 4 newcomers who arrived because they heard the words “free hot dogs”. They were stunned at the numbers of their buddies, and the friendliness of it all. They said they would start out with us next September.

The lunch always ends with the phrase, “have a great weekend – and remember that God loves you, Jesus loves you, and we love you, too.”Add an Image

  1. This is Canada’s future, we pray for them. You could pray for them too. Pray for their parents and their teachers, their schools and their futures.That God would protect them, bolt the doors of their souls to all evil and help them to make the right choices in their lives and above all that God will draw them to Himself by giving them the desire to follow His Word which is written in The Holy Bible Jesus is the Way and the Truth and the Life.
