An ecumenical ministry that provides a hot breakfast, a bag lunch, and fellowship every Saturday morning

Break Bread with Friends began over 10 years ago as an ecumenical ministry among some of the local Christian Churches.  Originally held at Jackson Methodist Church, which later became The Rock Church, the ministry is now carried out at St. Patrick Catholic Church.

Each Saturday morning, volunteers from these churches prepare breakfast for anyone in need of a hot breakfast.  We also make up bag lunches 'to go.'  A friendly atmosphere makes for a pleasant morning.  All who are hungry are welcome:

Dates:  Every Saturday

Time:  9 to 11 AM

Place:  St. Patrick Church Hall, 115 Court Street, Jackson (hall is located behind St. Patrick Church)

The ministry is blessed to have a faithful team of volunteers, but we welcome the participation of more.  Call Joe Lang at 209-296-3154 for more information.


Called together by Jesus Christ, who came to restore us to friendship with the Father, we continue the work of our Savior to bring salvation to all peoples through the life-giving Church He established.


Inspired by the example of St. Katharine Drexel, we strive to serve the Lord by:


  • Making the Eucharist the source and summit of our lives

  • Building intentional community

  • Preaching the Gospel to the people of Amador County

  • Forming missionary disciples

  • Reaching out to those in need
