Volunteers in the St. Francis outreach “hold up the hands” of the staff at St. Francis House, a local shelter for homeless men. Individual volunteers provide enough meat and vegetables to feed 25 for the noon meal on the first and fourth Sundays of each month. Other volunteers deliver the food and coordinate with St. Francis House staff. An annual tradition is our August St. Francis House picnic, on site at a park across from the House. It is a chance for all members of our congregation to get to know St. Francis residents one on one, right across the table.
