Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Vandals do thousands in damage to soup kitchen
Someone vandalized the Capuchin Soup Kitchen's Services Center on Detroit's east side over the weekend, causing an estimated $50,000-$60,000 damage.
Center officials said the vandalism occurred at the center at 6333 Medbury between Saturday afternoon and Monday morning.
Five heating and air conditioning units were destroyed, as were two freezer compressors. Officials suspect the vandals were trying to get the copper and aluminum from the units.
