Father Joe’s Villages’ Inclement Weather Shelter in San Diego provides up to 250 people experiencing homelessness a safe, warm reprieve on cold and rainy nights. Here’s how it works.
For 5,600 San Diegans living without a roof over their heads, rain and cold means sleeplessness, chilliness and sometimes dangerous health consequences.
For almsgiving during Lent, consider making the needs of the homeless your own by giving to Father Joe’s Villages. Learn about some of the people we’ve seen overcome homelessness during our many years of service to our neighbors in need.
Blessings on Ash Wednesday
“Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.”
Today, these are the prayerful words many people will hear as ashes are placed on their forehead to observe Ash Wednesday.
Each year, these words remind us of our own mortal life here on earth and daily encourages us each to humility, sacrifice and love.
