Greenpoint Photos du Jour: Live From The Church Of The Ascension
Filed under: 11222, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic
If what yours truly saw (and smelled) earlier today was any indication, I’d say this year’s Thanksgiving “dinner” is proving to be a smashing success. John Ricco, the owner of Grandma Rose’s pizzeria and a host of volunteers volunteers worked 48 hours straight to ensure that 1,000 delicious meals were prepared to feed our community’s neediest. After the feasting commenced, Pastor Merz and John shared a few thoughts— and a prayer.
Thanksgiving comes to pass only once a year. The Church of the Ascension’s soup kitchen and food pantry need your help year ’round.
