Interfaith Hospitality Network

Our parish hosts the Interfaith Hospitality Network three times a year by providing shelter and food for families during their time of greatest need.

There are many ways to volunteer during IHN week. You can help set up and take down or be a dinner, evening or overnight host.

The next IHN hosting is the week of June 11th.
