Street Ministry

“Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words.” – St. Francis of Assisi

Franciscan Peacemakers serves bag lunches 5 days a week in neighborhoods where drug dealing and prostitution occur on a regular basis. Children, women and men living in poverty come to receive what in most cases are their only meals for the day.

These same meals are also used as a way to make contact and develop trust with women who prostitute in hopes that they will break away from the street life and journey toward healing.
