Not long ago, HIA shared the homeless outreach story (see Thursday, June 12, 2008) of Brother Matthias and his founding of the Brothers of the Good Shepherd. This week is a first-hand report on their ministry.
Check out the pictures! Brothers Charles and Gerard among others bring the life of Christ to the inner city homeless. Daily, at 3:15 pm they provide a sit-down hot meal for 100-200 people. Each day, the kitchen also serves breakfast and lunch for 20-30 people who are in a 37 day recovery program. Those in the program have come direct to the house from under bridges and living on streets. They receive clothing, shelter, a bed, counseling services and more. Brother Matthias founded the ministry in the 1950s and it has been operating non-stop since that time. The brothers also serve the poor in other locations such as Toronto, Hamilton and Miami to mention a few.
