St. Philip Safe Haven Ministry
Please fill the calendar below as soon as possible to provide monthly dinners for the families residing at Safe Haven Family Shelter.
Feel free to include your Cursillo group, prayer group, etc. to sponsor a Sunday.
Each month, the Friday before "our" Sunday, I will get word of the numbers and any specific instructions from Safe Haven and will pass that on immediately to the families on the schedule. You can look at the planned menu of others and get an idea of what has been done before. The last year, our numbers have been between 25-30.
We are asked to be there by 5:30 (or can prepare the meal there if you would like) with the meal to be ready for the families to eat by 6 pm. The families all have their own dishes and utensils. I typically do not bring drinks as there is an ice and water machine. There is a chore list for them for kitchen and area clean up. It is wonderful to see the encouragement for personal responsibility. It is always welcomed to offer to play games and interact with the families. We are encouraged to say Grace with them before the meal and to sit down and eat with them.
Thank you! And many blessings to you and your family!
