St. Benedict’s Homeless Shelter (Shaped by Faith)
Shaped by Faith by Faith guest Harry Pedigo is the Director of the St. Benedict's Homeless Shelter for Men. Harry shared how St. Benedict's got started and the history behind the Mens homeless shelter.
You do not want to miss hearing the miraculous testimony of what God has done for Harry. He is definitely shining the light of Jesus Christ at St. Benedict's by helping so many of our homeless Men. Harry brought up Matthew 5:14-16 and reminded us that we all should be shining the Light of Jesus Christ wherever the Lord sends us.
Matthew 5:14-16 You are light for the world. A city cannot be hidden when it is located on a hill. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket. Instead, everyone who lights a lamp puts it on a lamp stand. Then its light shines on everyone in the house. In the same way let your light shine in front of people. Then they will see the good that you do and praise your Father in heaven.
St. Benedict Emergency Homeless Shelter is a temporary refuge for the homeless men in our community. The shelter provides their guests with a safe, non-judgmental, warm place to sleep, take a shower, eat and wash personal laundry in a Christian atmosphere.
Along with St. Benedict's we need to help our homeless so that they can be provided with a place to sleep, a hot meal, a warm shower and a place to launder their clothing. Please consider what you can give to St. Benedict's homeless shelter so that our community may continue to operate its only walk-in homeless shelter. Without your generosity many will find no shelter from the weather, no food to fill their stomach and no loving community away from the streets.
The Shelter is open year-round from 8 p.m. til 8 a.m. Men only emergency shelter. Two meals daily. Laundry and showers available to overnight guests.
