There is still room for two or three more adults to go on the November 13-19th trip to the St. Francis Inn in Philadelphia.  Besides working in the soup kitchen, there are opportunities to pick up food donations, work in the thrift store, work in the women’s day center, and even possibly work in the free clinic if you’re an RN.  There’s also daily Masses or prayer services, as well as a few hours each day to pray, meditate, or just be by yourself.  By the end of the week you’ll be tired but elated as if you’ve finished a retreat.  Interested or want to find out more?  Email Dave Gerhardt at gerhardt@charter.net.
