“Around the table, we offer friendship and celebrate life. Our meals offer a divine moment, an opportunity
for people to be seduced by grace into a better life, a truer life, and a more human existence.”

Tupper Supper is named in honor of Eliza Tupper Wilkes. Tupper Wilkes was one of the first female Universalist ministers and was ordained at our First Universalist Society Church in Rochester, MN in 1871. Tupper Wilkes was the organizer of numerous mission churches in eastern Dakota Territory and western Minnesota and Iowa. She settled in the village of Sioux Falls in 1878 with her husband. There, Tupper Wilkes continued her community involvement, including the organization of the Ladies’ History Club and the public library. She continued her ministry by preaching occasionally in local churches and fostering a small group of liberal believers.
