Catholic Action Center
Celebrating 15 Years of Caring, Action and Connection!

 Over 5.5 million meals served
Over 890,000 nights of shelter provided
Over 2.5 million items of clothing given
Over 225,000 showers taken
Over 95,000 loads of laundry cleaned
Over 90 funerals for souls who had no one
Millions of prayers raised to the heavens
Unlimited offerings of dignity, compassion, forgiveness, mercy
by over 200,000 volunteers -
no government funding no paid staff
That is the Catholic Action Center:

We need  your prayer support & financial support as the new location is being readied to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, cloth our sisters & brother and offer dignity, hope & connections. The building & retrofit of the building cost 1,100,000. With the sale of properties, the final debt will be $550,000. The mortgage has been secured on the property that is valued at $2,100,000. Renovations should be copleted by early Spring & we hope to celebrate Easter in the new facility.

Please prayerfully consider donating to the new Catholic Action Center. All donations are tax deductible & every dollar is directly giving life, dignity, food & shelter to those who Jesus named the "least of my people".

Thank you for considering this request. May you & your family be blessed in this holy season!

Sandwich Ministry

You can now sign-up for open Sandwich Ministry dates right here on our website!


Each night at the Community Inn, sandwiches are provided to guests who may have otherwise gone without food for the day. All sandwiches are made and donated by generous church and service groups, and individuals and families of our community.

We ask that those who sign up make 50 sandwiches, cut them in half and deliver them to the Community Inn (824 Winchester Rd) between 7:00-8:30 on the night scheduled. Sandwiches can be any type and delivered in a container that does not need to be returned.
