OLP - Homeless Shelter Mission
I am proud to announce that we are expanding
our Homeless Ministry at OLP!
Our Lady of Peace will team up with St Teresa of Avila and United Methodist Church (UMC) to host the homeless for 2 weeks at UMC (17 KENT PLACE BLVD.) in Summit starting in March and we will continue to host there several times throughout this year.
As Little Flower is under construction, we have decided to keep our ministry going strong with easy access for all volunteers. This opportunity arose and we decided to join forces to help the Homeless even more efficiently. UMC graciously agreed to let us use their facilities so the families can stay in one place for 2 weeks straight! They are fully equipped with individual family rooms, super kitchen and social area and even showers! Our brave Overnight Volunteers have modern individual rooms as well. It is our goal moving forward, to do this 4 times per year.
The first of OLP nights will be: March 26th, 28th and 30th
Please note that on 3/28, OLP will offer and host the first ever
"Chinese Take-Out Night".
As usual, we are need of volunteers for the OLP hosting evenings: food prep & delivery, entertainment hosts, kitchen helpers and overnighters.
PREPARE FOOD FOR 15 PEOPLE.
Exact figure to be advised several days before shelter.
Any Questions/Comments? Feel free to call me @ (724 989 5191)
Note: Re-certification courses of "Protecting God's Children" are held periodically at OLP
Please contact Val at the OLP Parish Office for more information.
All volunteers are required to complete "Protecting God's Children" prior to volunteering.
Recertification is needed every 3 years.
