Where Love Is
The Story of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen
A film by Gerard Straub
Running Time: 90 Min. © 2006
This film tells the inspirational story of the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, which has been faithfully serving the poor of Detroit since 1929. A simple friar named Solanus Casey, whose saintly life of prayer and charity are legendary in Detroit, inspired the kitchen. In Where Love Is, stories of faith from places of deep pain emerge like beams of light piercing through immense obstacles. In a city with the country’s second highest unemployment rate, deep-seated poverty, and racial segregation, hope is still possible. The friars and volunteers love with sincerity through acts of kindness and provision, believing that where love is, there God is.
