Mother Marianne’s West Side Kitchen will hold a “rededication ceremony” on Wednesday, Oct. 9, to celebrate completion of renovations.

The “soup kitchen” is sporting new flooring, new dining tables and chairs, a new serving area (the “hole-in-the-wall” project), some reconfiguration in the kitchen, and fresh coats of paint.

The program kicks off at 12:30 p.m. with a ribbon-cutting and tour. At 12:45 the celebration moves across the street to the Irish Cultural Center for light refreshments to thank donors and volunteers. A recognition ceremony starts at 1:15.

Donors, volunteers and members of the parish community interested in attending need to RSVP by Oct. 4 by sending an email to or by calling Mary at 315-796-9284.
