The parishioners of St. John's Church have been operating a weekly Soup Kitchen for 12 years - one the oldest and remaining few services in the City of Perth Amboy. Every Monday evening from 5:00-6:00PM, people from all walks of life are invited into the parish hall for a warm community-centered meal and fellowship.
