Soup & Fellowship to Follow

SFA Grand Worship Site and Social Hall


This event is open to everyone, 

not just CEW participants.


All are welcome, as the St. Francis and CEW community host an evening of reflection, remembrance, and fellowship. The event will begin in the Grand Worship site as we follow the sacrifice of our Lord through His crucifixion and hear a brief personal reflection, song, or prayer in relation to each station.


After the Stations of the Cross, all are welcome to gather in the Grand social hall for a complimentary dinner of soup and chili prepared by the CEW community. What an amazing opportunity to welcome others into faith and fellowship. We hope you can join us and can bring a friend.


Sign up sheets for stations and soup are availabe by clicking on the link located to the right. If you have any questions call Eileen Zdanowski 920-629-3905 or Dan Owen .
