Community Outreach

Overview

 

St. Patrick-St. Anthony Church and the Franciscan Center for Urban Ministry are committed to welcoming and extending hospitality to all people, especially the alienated, the marginalized, and the poor. Consistent with this commitment, we have undertaken several joint ventures with like-minded organizations in the Hartford area: services provided in collaboration with The House of Bread (since 1994); Catherine's Place, in collaboration with Mercy Housing and Shelter Corporation (since 2004); St. Genevieve Parish in Zoranje, Haiti (since February 2005); The Wellness Center on Church Street in partnership with Saint Joseph College in West Hartford (since 2005). Our Community Partners are faith-based social service agencies committed to enhancing people's lives, dignity, and rights through action and commitment. Some activities are on-going while others are one-time commitments. For more information, contact Trudi White, CVA at twhite@spsact.org or 860.756.4034 extension 110.
