  • Code Purple - thank you!!

    Dear friends,

    The Code Purple Shelters at St. Jude the Apostle and The Lutheran Church of Our Savior closed for the season on Friday, March 15th . Cold weather operations will start up again at the beginning of December 2024.

    I often witnessed the looks of appreciation and delight as the men and women ate the homemade casseroles. They were all cold and tired from long hours outside or long hours at work and the hot food nourished both their bodies and spirits.

    I am so proud of the generous spirit that exists within our church family and grateful to be a part of it all. 

    Cathie Wagner,
