Ongoing Events at St. Mary’s Franciscan Shelter….

Constructions

St. Mary’s, our beloved 150+ year old building on Emmett Street, has been suffering the effects of aging. In 2011 we found out that the joists and pilings under our kitchen had rotted and the structure would have to be rebuilt. During the past 7 years this has been a nagging concern for all of us. Recent signs of continued decay made it clear that this had to be addressed immediately. During the next couple months we will restore the structure, rebuild a kitchen, replace our laundry room and add a powder room. Like our Facebook page for periodic updates.

St. Mary’s turned 30!!!

On Friday, Oct 6th, St Mary’s Franciscan Shelter celebrated 30 years of providing homeless families ‘a safe place on the journey home’. With 185 of our friends and supporters, we spent the evening reflecting on our mission, our stories, and our needs for the future. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner, heard testimonials from past residents, and listened to Seth Joyner share his story – and remind us of the importance of sharing our blessings! Thank you to everyone that made our 30th Gala an outstanding success – and more importantly for your continuous support that enables all of our success!
