During the past 30 years your generosity to the Philadelphia Catholic Worker House has been overwhelming. Regrettably, for a variety of reasons, the house will be closing, and St. Gen’s will transition our outreach to assist others in similar need this way:
- Casseroles (last weekend each month) will go to St. Francis Inn, Kensington.
- Non-perishable food (second Sunday of the month), PREP’s “Souper Bowl” and toiletry collection, and some giving tree gifts will go to Mother of Mercy House, Kensington.
- School supplies, giving tree gifts will go to the SSJ Welcome Center, Kensington.
- Parishioners will be volunteering weekly at Marie’s Closet. Run by the staff of St. Francis Inn, this thrift store provides 300-400 changes of clothing per month for guests who come for meals at St. Francis Inn. Donations of clean, seasonal men’s, women’s and children’s clothing and shoes, linens and housewares are welcome.
Please contact Elizabeth Gavula if you are interested in getting involved! firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-292-6976.
