Worcester Interfaith supported the Legislator’s tour of YouthWorks sites with the Mass Youth Jobs Coalition, the Regional Enviromental Council and Boys and Girls Club of Worcester as coordinated by Pernet Family Health Service. Thank to those who participated in the legislative tour. As noted by Pernet, “Everyone was on time, on message and the youth were amazing.” The photos were supplied by Pernet.

This year’s Beggar’s Bowl was held on October 10, 2017 from 5:30 – 7:30 at First Baptist Church, 111 Park Avenue, Worcester.
We had a record turn-out this year and more soups than ever.
Thanks to everyone who made this year’s Bowl such a success!
We look forward to seeing you next year! Here are a few pictures from the event:
The bowls will be made and bisque fired and a group of volunteers will meet to decorate and glazes each one. The Worcester Interfaith Council sends its thanks to Beggar’s Bowl volunteers Joyce Shapiro-Ellowitz, Lothar Franke, Joan Graham-Goff and Phil Magnusson who assisted Executive Director, Frank Kartheiser in this work for the 2017 event. Watch for the 2018 Beggars Bowl date.
Thanks to everyone who supported BB 2016 — it was our best one yet!
