Catholic Action Center
 

     Founded in June, 2000, in Lexington, Ky., the Catholic Action Center is based on the Catholic Worker Movement, began by Dorothy Day. The center is a house of hospitality that welcomes all who are in need. It is a faith based outreach of volunteers who strive to provide all guests a welcoming place to receive their basic needs with dignity.  The mission of the center is to “fill in the gap” of services for our brothers and sisters in need with no government funding by providing an opportunity for people of faith to connect with and serve the marginalized of our community.  Three meals a day, shower and restroom facilities, mail receipt, a telephone, clean clothing and a place to gather are all a part of the hospitality offered.  Caring ears to listen and connections with social service agencies are also available. Daily prayer services are held for those who hunger spiritually.  
     Volunteers are the heart and soul of the center. Helping hands and caring hearts are always welcome in preparing and serving meals, sorting donations, and being part of the ministry of presence to the marginalized and homeless of our community.

     If you would like to get involved in any way, let us know. All funding is through donations; all food and supplies are donated. Food, clothing, supplies, personal care items and caring people are always needed!

 I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink,
I was a stranger and you invited me in..
