Shrine of the Sacred Heart Dinner Program
In response to Pope Francis's call to accompany the poor, teens are invited to participate in the Shrine of the Sacred Heart Dinner Program each month.
Teens and adult volunteers assemble in the Sacred Heart Rectory to prepare food and enjoy fellowship, serve outside the church (or in the rectory basement), interact with guests in a safe setting, and clean up.
The onsite time-commitment is 3:15-5PM. All food and supplies are provided. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the Shrine of the Sacred Heart (3211 Sacred Heart Way, Washington, DC 20010). Carpooling may be an option.
This is a day to learn about peace and others' lives and serve our wider community. 7th through 12th graders are invited to this morning of service and presence with children and teens at the Perry Center. On scheduled Saturdays (TBD--if coordinated by a parent/adult vol) we leave from Holy Trinity at 9:00 am and return by 12:30 pm.
Drivers and chaperones are always needed.
