Finding Sanctuary at St. Marks

You may have seen this story about homeless families who started camping in North Philly as Church of the Poor to draw Pope Francis’ attention to the homeless.…/homeless-families-kensi…/

St. Mark’s Church has given 5 families sanctuary at the church. There are 22 people including 6 kids – some young. Bob and I talked with Dean Jon and Deacon Phil about how we could help. We were told that these were some of the families’ immediate needs: toilet paper

soap – bathing
laundry detergent (no pods as kids think it’s candy)
food – dry goods (the families are able to cook for themselves)

If you prefer, you can send a donation c/o Family Sanctuary, St. Mark’s Church, 4442 Frankford Ave, Phila., PA 19124

Thank you! God bless for your care and concern!
