Meet Our Bakers! Fat Friar all began under the vision of Friar Nicholas, OFM Conv. as a way to help our Food Pantry and Soup Kitchen ministry at Assumption Church. The venture continues today thanks our faithful volunteers! Joe is our resident professional cookie decorator! Here Joe is giving our friars some cords. Mary Ellen and Gloria may be two of our newer volunteers, but we are so lucky to have them! They work hard making our Fat Friar cookies year round! Friar Nick, the founder of Fat Friar, fills Linzer Tortes with jam.Two of our veteran volunteers, Joe and Jane roll out Fat Friar cookies. Each cookie is handmade with love!
