Night Shelter 

Each year from November 1 to March 31, The Shrine ministers to a small portion of the homeless along with numerous organizations and churches by being a part of the Central Night Shelter. The Shrine hosts 30-35 of the 100+ guests and by providing sack lunches, dinner, and overnight assistance for approximately 30 of the 150 nights.

Our signup each season begins in September with several Sign-up Sundays held after the Masses. If you want to check out our schedule, click the Shrine Night Shelter Schedule.

Foot Care Night

Shelter Footcare is an opportunity to be with guests at our Shelter and respond to the Gospel’s call to be in the company of and serve the poor. This very rewarding experience is available on Wednesday nights, November 1 through March 31. Some required training is provided so that volunteers can take care of guest’s weary feet.
