St. Jane Family Promise
We participate as a host congregation through Family Promise of St. Tammany, which furnishes lodgings here at St. Jane’s campus in Abita Springs, and provides nutritious meals for homeless families (up to 14 people) for one week a few times a year.
St. Jane Parish is proud and excited to be a part of this opportunity to demonstrate the corporal and spiritual works of mercy in a practical and life-affirming way.
Volunteers are the heart and soul of Family Promise
And there are many ways that you can help. Whether you can:
- provide a hot meal
- arrange activities for children
- serve a meal
- stay overnight as a host
- help with setup, housekeeping, or breakdown of the families’ home for the week at the Barré Center.
In any and all of these ways, you can make a difference in the lives of families who have lost their homes and are on the road to regaining independence.
We are honored.
Mark your calendars to sign up in person at Coffee and Donuts in St. Jane Hall on Sunday morning, April 2, 2023 and September 3, 2023!
As a Host Congregation since 2015, St. Jane plays an integral part in sheltering and providing meals for homeless families in our community.
