We support an integrated spirituality that recognizes the relationship between faith, justice and service. We share a nutritious meal in a setting of hospitality and safety. We collaborate with other individuals and groups to enhance our ministry.



St. Ben’s Meal’s Volunteer Lunch

(Saturday, November 15, 11:30 AM) Volunteers help the Capuchins' minister to the homeless and hungry. All volunteers are invited to join us for our annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. The meal will be held at St. Alphonsus Church.


Holiday Food Box Program

Many of our central city families have a roof over their heads, but cannot afford to shop for the fixings of a traditional Thanksgiving or Christmas meal. Join the House of Peace to meet this need in our annual Holiday Food Box Program. Learn how your business, organization, parish, or synagogue can help fill boxes for these families.
