Province I Grant

The Very Reverend Miguelina Espinal Howell, Dean of Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford, Connecticut, received a $1,000 grant from the National Board of Episcopal Church Women on behalf of Church Street Eats, a cooperative ministry in Hartford that involves the people of the cathedral. 

Church Street Eats feeds body and soul, providing meals, clothing, personal care items, and opportunities for worship to those in need in the downtown Hartford area. Their numbers continue to grow.

Bagged lunches are prepared and distributed to 20 -100 individuals every Saturday in Bushnell Park no matter the weather. (The park is within walking distance of Christ Church Cathedral.) Then, lunch at the Cathedral House is offered every Sunday at noon.
