Sandwich Ministry

Social Ministries

Feeding the hungry

Please consider joining us in an exciting way to serve others. We meet in the Parish Hall at 10:30 a.m. to make sandwiches and then pack the lunches, which include sandwiches, fruit, cookie, and a drink. After the lunches have been made, we drive to the St. James Park area of downtown San Jose. The sandwiches are distributed to everyone in the park. When everyone has been served, part of the group follows the light rail tracks into the center of the city and distributes sandwiches as they walk. The part of the group who remains in the park cleans up litter. Even litter that isn’t part of the Holy Spirit lunches will be cleared away.

We invite ten families to join us every 3rd Saturday of the month. We ask for a one to one ratio of adults to students as parents need to be with their child especially during the distribution in St. James Park. Student participation is limited to sixth grade and older. A donation of $10 is asked from each family to cover the cost of food and supplies.

Our next Saturday Lunch Ministry is December 2nd
