And 5 years later….#1968

For 20-odd years, Senfkorn (“Mustard Seed – here’s the parable)has been a meeting point for folks with alcohol or psychological problems, where they could feel secure among their peer and support groups and get a 3 course meal on Sundays for €6. About $10.

Five years ago, Senfkorn’s landlord (the diocese of Mainz..) increased the rent and Caritas, a confederation of Catholic relief, development and social service organisations, withdrew its support.

The property has been empty ever since.

This doth verily make the blood boil……
