Merciful God, You are great in compassion and Your tenderness for us is without measure. We ask You to give us today our daily bread, and also provide for the needs of all of Your hungry children around the world. Through Christ Your Son and Our Lord. Amen.

Weekly Menu


I'm starting to feel the way I usually do at the end of the summer -- tired of grilling, tired of not wanting to heat the oven because of the heat outdoors, and anxious to make stews, and casseroles, and cold weather food. What can I say? I prefer cold weather to hot weather, and I'm ready for a switch. Trying a few new recipes this week should help my attitude, and we have two lovely saints to celebrate this week -- St. Theresa Benedicta and St. Clare.

Lunch: Skyline Chilitos
Pimento Cheese and Bacon Burgers, potato salad, fruit kebabs

Lunch: Roast Beef Sandwiches with Mustard Sauce, crudites
Crispy Baked Chicken Teriyaki, steamed broccoli, rice, Lemon Meringue Pie

-- Feast of St. Theresa Benedicta
Grilled turkey and cheese sandwiches
Dinner: German Style Bratwurst, German potato salad, cucumber and tomato slices, Käsekuchen

Pizza Bread
Dinner: Sloppy Joes, tater tots, Root Beer floats (no veggie night!)

Wednesday -- Feast of St. Clare
Lunch: Tomato, Bacon and Grilled Cheese Sammies, fresh fruit
Bella Bruschetta Salad, bread, pizzelles and Strawberry Gelato

Thursday -- Feast of St. Jane Frances de Chantal (make a donation of food to the poor)
Lunch: Bagels and cream cheese
Dirty Rice, green beans, Corn Bread


Lunch: Bread, cheese, fruit
Scrambled Egg Tacos, Fried potatoes, salsa and avocado slices
