Vienna Anglicans take their turn in a project for released prisoners

On Saturday 31 May, eight members of Christ Church Vienna took their turn to run a soup kitchen organised by a Lutheran parish in the 6th district of the Austrian capital. The soup kitchen was set up to help those being released from prison to reintegrate into the life of the city.

It was a very international brigade of volunteers from Christ Church! They came originally from six countries: Austria, Ghana, Liberia, Nigeria, South Africa and Sri Lanka. In the photograph above, the helpers are pictured with Norbert the soup kitchen manager. The Anglican parish's next turn is on 20 September.
