Welcome to St. Francis Inn Ministries

 

We are a Franciscan, Eucharistic community called to minister with the poor and homeless of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formed in the spirit of the Gospel and inspired by the life and compassion of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi, we try to meet the immediate daily needs of the people we serve with food, clothing and hospitality. Furthermore, we empower persons to break the cycle of homelessness and poverty and address structural injustices. We seek to build relationships with those that we serve by respecting their human dignity and by helping them to restore hope in their lives, and by living simply among them.

Hard to beat bagging bread time 😍

bagging bread was my favorite - had such a sense of accomplishment

My brother and sister in law told us about St. Francis Inn. We had the opportunity to volunteer one time and hope to be back soon. In short, for those who have volunteered or are thinking about it, you discover that you are not feeding the poor...they are feeding you. Incredible experience.
