In Everything, Give Thanks

The Samaritan Center main dining area is housed in the former St. John the Evangelist Church on the Northside of Syracuse. Like many similar organizations in our diocese, volunteers there feed the hungry and help the less fortunate in many ways. In the words of Executive Director Mary Beth Frye, “We are honored to stand beside them in good days and bad; to let them know they are not alone.” Next week’s Catholic Sun’s cover story is devoted to this organization, and we’ll also have a story on a remarkable Broome County food pantry and more as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving.
