Community Prayer to End Homelessness
Andre House stands against a divided world. We believe that the first and most important activity in healing a broken world is prayer. The last Friday of each month Andre House hosts an ecumenical prayer meeting that brings together many faith communities, community leaders, people experiencing homelessness together for one hour of prayer, song and petition. I invite you to join us as we seek to invite peace and harmony to our community.
Located in the heart of the Capital Mall District, we make our services available to hundreds of people in need every day. André House was founded by two Holy Cross Priests in 1984, combining elements of the Catholic Worker movement with the charism of the Congregation of Holy Cross. We dedicate ourselves to serving Jesus through others, as we are challenged in the Gospel, "...I was a stranger, and you welcomed me. I was naked, and you gave me clothing. I was sick, and you took care of me. I was in prison, and you visited me.” (Matthew 25:35-36)
