The Cenacle is the place of the Last Supper where the Holy Spirit came down upon the apostles. Every Sunday afternoon under the lunch shelter, the St. Justin's Cenacle group serves hot meals to those in need. The Cenacle is made up of four teams of 8-10 people who prepare and serve the food. The Cenacle is funded through the St. Vincent de Paul Society and through donations. The group also comes together several times a year to meet in prayer, guidance, and thanksgiving for their continued service to all of those in need. The Cenacle demonstrates that feeding the hungry is following the teachings of Jesus, who said, "When I was hungry you gave me to eat."
The Cenacle group serves hot meals on Sundays at 2:30 p.m. for anyone and everyone who comes.
How You Can Help
During the winter months, the Cenacle group has a socks drive to benefit the homeless and needy of those who come for the hot lunch. They ask for new white sport socks for men. You can bring them to the Parish Office any day of the week during the winter months.
Gift Cards Needed
We are asking for $10 gift cards to pass out to the needy during the month of December. Suggestion for gift cards would be fast food restaurants, grocery stores, dollar stores, etc. Please place the gift cards in an envelope marked "Cenacle" and drop it off in the collection basket or bring to the Parish Office.
Other ways you can help
On Sundays we are asking for donations of fresh fruit and nutrition bars. Please drop these off under the shelter on Sundays between 1-2 p.m.
