Giving thanks and feeding & praying with the homeless

This Thanksgiving weekend, two groups of our St. Joseph’s Workers teens and adult youth minister volunteers prepared meal bags (on Friday) and delivered the food to and prayed with the homeless in Washington, DC (Saturday), offering both corporal and spiritual works of mercy to those in need on this special holiday weekend. This idea was created by one of our volunteer youth ministers, Isaac, whose birthday was also this weekend… he wanted to change it up and give to others to celebrate his birthday in a special way.

This generous idea made a perfect match on a weekend when we remember how much we’ve been blessed, and how we can share with those in need. Thank you, all volunteers, teens and adults! And a big thank you in particular to Isaac for the idea and leading the charge for both shifts!
