Café Divine prepares and serves meals for St. David’s events, including Sunday breakfast, Wednesday dinner, public lunches, a multitude of St. David’s ministries, and in 2020 created a popular downtown Curbside meal service. Café Divine has provided food service for St. David’s since 1998, when Chef Ray Trono, a graduate of the Culinary Institute in Hyde Park, New York, was hired to oversee the hospitality ministry. Chef Ray is joined by Chef Mark Shevlin, a graduate of San Francisco’s California Culinary Institute, and Edmundo Diaz prep/dish washer to round out the Café Divine kitchen team. Along with countless volunteers and a hospitality-focused staff that includes Manager of Holy Grounds Taylor Cloyd we strive to put love, passion, and creativity into everything we do.
