The Covenant Soup Kitchen is in the process of renovating the church hall at St. Paul's! Through a grant from the State of Connecticut the roof has been repaired (no more leaks!) and the ceiling has been replaced. The windows and lighting are next. The hall and sanctuary have been painted and the mold smell is gone. Work will continue and we will keep you posted.
The Bread Box is a group of individuals committed to fighting hunger in our local community by providing a folk music venue that is solely dedicated to collecting food and revenue for The Covenant Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry. We have transformed the sanctuary of St. Paul's Episcopal Church (located at 220 Valley Street, Willimantic CT) into a hundred seat theater with beautiful stained glass and a superb sound system. All proceeds always go to the charity as this is a completely volunteer operation.
Artist Showcase is held the third Wednesday of every month. Contact Bruce John @ 860-429-4220 if you would like to perform.
