Youth Grate Patrol
For over a decade St. Alban's youth have participated in Grate Patrol. One of the four youth groups participates each month in rotation, meeting on the second Friday of the month from September to June. The group assigned meets at church at 5:00 p.m. to assemble over 150 bag lunches, and warm almost a dozen large casseroles that have been prepared by a separate adult group earlier in the week. We have fellowship time together over a shared meal, then board the Grate Patrol van which transports us to distribute the food we've prepared and often other items that have been collected. We put the food we've prepared directly into the hands of the homeless of our nation's capitol. The connection to our baptismal covenant is made real over and over again.
