Feeding the Hungry

Holy Spirit Church offers two opportunities to help those in our city that need our help. We hope you will consider joining us in this important ministry and serve your fellow community members. Read on to find out more about how you can help. Thank you for being the Face of Christ to others through your service.

 

Please note: Out of concern for the safety, health, and lives of our parishioners, staff, volunteers and that of the general public, we are suspending all Parish ministries’ meetings at Holy Spirit Parish until further notice. Please check back for further updates.

St. James Saturday Lunch Ministry

We meet in the Parish Hall at 10:30am 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 lunches 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 lunches 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 1st 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.

Please join us for our next Saturday Lunch Ministry. Sign up below!
