St. Joseph’s House of Hospitality

 

 

    As part of a community-wide ecumenical effort, St. Paul's volunteers prepare and serve a hot meal for up to 96 people who are among the working poor, unemployed, and homeless.  On the first Saturday of each month from September to June, we gather at St. Joseph's House of Hospitality on South Avenue to heed our Lord's command to "Feed my lambs." 

    Volunteers may contribute in several ways: bake cookies or brownies ahead of time, shop for food, prepare and serve a meal for as many as 96 adults and children in a restaurant-style setting, and/or clean up, doing dishes and other kinds of cleaning. Kind words of welcome and encouragement are part of the mission to feed not just the bodies but the souls of our guests. The ministry at St. Joe’s has been in place for more than 20 years.
