Helping the Local Homeless

03-17-2019Rev. Kenneth Brighenti

My dear parishioners,

I would like to address a critical problem that has arisen in the past two weeks. Two men, who appeared to be homeless, have found their way to our parish. In the past, city, police and our parish have tried to help them. One, indeed, has the financial capacity to help himself. The police have told us that they go around from various places until they have to be removed. This past weekend they were removed from the hospital, for causing issues with the nursing staff. They ended up at St. Magdalen. I contacted social services but they could not provide help since one has adequate income. The other gentlemen refused to give any information.
