STS. PETER AND PAUL HOMELESS SHELTER DINNERS
Groups of 8 to 12 people from Holy Infant Parish purchase, prepare, deliver and serve an evening meal to the approximately 50 men at the homeless shelter in Soulard.
The Holy Infant nights are the Third Wednesday and the Fourth Thursday of every month.
Please form your own group and pick your own menu — including a dessert. Members of your group share the cost, which may be around $100 total. There is no stove at the shelter, so take your food, warm and ready to serve.
The shelter is located at 1919 South 7th Street, St. Louis, MO 63104. Plan to leave from Holy Infant at 6pm and arrive at the shelter at 6:30pm. Carry in the food and be ready to serve by 7pm. “Seconds” are offered around 8pm and you can usually leave by 8:15pm, but you can stay longer and visit if you wish. The management is very helpful, so if you have any questions, just ask.
If you would like to go with another group before heading up your own, let us know. We will add you to another group, so you’ll feel more comfortable with how the program works.
