Calvary Room in the Inn

Calvary - Room In the Inn - Winter Season 2018-19

We at Calvary Episcopal Church are excited to host ROOM IN THE INN for our FIFTH SEASON OF EMERGENCY WINTER SHELTER in partnership with Room in the Inn- Memphis! RITI is a hospitality oriented ministry to help our neighbors who are experiencing homelessness. Each week on Sunday, we will transport our guests to Calvary from Carpenter House located at 212 N Second Street, prepare and share dinner, offer access to Calvary's Clothes Closet, provide a warm, safe place to sleep and a quick breakfast with a snack to-go. There are various ways that you can help make this ministry a success. 

Please look over the volunteer opportunities below and help Calvary in making God's love visible in downtown Memphis. View this short video about Calvary's Room in the Inn. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact Betty Jo Dulaney, Terri DulaneyTodd Goforth, Anna Gregory, Paige Whittle or Mary Jane Viar.  If you are interested in staying overnight, please contact Martin Jellinek or any of those listed above.
