With faith and confidence, and the example of St. Francis and St. Clare of Assisi, we recognize our relatedness to all of humanity including the materially poor.


As such, we are called to witness to the interdependence we share with all our neighbors and so grow in our capacity to foster right relationships of justice and peace.

We offer workshops to empower organizations and interfaith communities dealing with:

  • Homelessness
  • Mental illness
  • Poverty

Our workshops aim to provide you with the tools you need to develop your outreach to the needed populations.

We engage Faith Community Nurses to advocate for the whole health issues of the community members, including but not limited to:

  • Whole health assessments (mind, body, spirit)
  • Uninsured/underinsured assistance
  • Health education
  • Referrals for other mental, physical, and spiritual health services

Our homeless ministry provides a number of services, including without limitation:

  • Canticle Cafe, a place for the neighborhood as well as those in need to gather, thus giving us the opportunity to offer services
  • Street ministries, providing a point of contact for relationship development and discovery of needs
  • Information and referrals

Our neighborhood enrichment programs provides:

  • Older adult outreach
  • Food pantry
  • Educational/spiritual offerings for the community
  • Support groups, such as Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and groups directed toward gambling and grief needs
