Living Faith, Sharing Love, Being Hope

Service Weeks 

We welcome High School and College groups to spend a week with us throughout the year to get a taste of inner city Philadelphia and what our ministry is about. 


Your week is scheduled to meet your groups individual needs. The week may include: joining in our ministry throughout the week, prayer and reflection time, daily Mass, and end of the week Mass, meals, a possible talk or two, adoration, games, a trip to the St. John Nuemann Shrine, and time to explore Philadelphia. 


Accomodations: Bring your sleeping bags and mattresses! We have some floor space for your group. 

We have the capacity to accommodate between 4 and 12 people per group (8-10 is ideal). 


Donations: At this time, we are not asking a specific price for the week, but we do ask for a donation so as to help defer some of the costs and services we provide for you for the week. If your budget allows, we also ask that groups bring white socks, men's underwear, or pantry items as well for our ministry.


We will include meals for your group for the week, please let us know if there are any special dietary needs. 

We also have cats, so please let your group know, and let us know of any allergies etc. Some of our work includes construction of our new house, so if anyone is allergic to dust, please prepare ahead of time for that as well.  


Please see the Ministry Schedule to learn about our regular ministry schedule. Everything else will be based around that.
