Room in the Inn Has Begun! Be Part of the “Inn” Crowd

 

St. Francis’s Room in the Inn continues through March, 2018

St. Francis is joining with other churches in the Memphis area to serve those experiencing homelessness. St. Francis invites the homeless to be our guests at the Room in the Inn, every Thursday night through the end of March, 2018, at the Ozanam Center (St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen), 1306 Monroe.

We offer food and shelter to those in need of our aid. You can assist in this endeavor by preparing and/or serving dinner or breakfast, sharing in fellowship, arranging sleeping quarters or serving as a Laundry Angel. There is a job for everyone!
