Each year, the Wise Temple Congregation serves the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for the homeless guests at St. Francis Seraph Ministries in Over-the-Rhine. This annual partnership between the Wise Temple Congregation and the Franciscan Friar's is now over 35 years old.
The Thanksgiving Dinner meal was served by more than a dozen Wise Temple congregants, and the Christmas Dinner is planned for Tuesday, December 21 at 4:30 pm. The holiday meals always begins with a Hebrew and Christian blessing. This year, the Thanksgiving blessings were offered by Wise Temple member Jeff Goldstein and Franciscan Friar Al Hirt, Pastor of St. Francis Seraph Church.
