Loaves & Fishes

“The opportunity to provide a hot, well balanced meal to those in need and a great way to enjoy the company of fellow parishioners, make a difference in our community, and live the Gospel message.”


Lumen Christi serves meals 24 times a year through the Loaves and Fishes organization either at Dorothy Day or St. Matthew’s Church.  At Dorothy Day approximately 280 meals are served each session.  At St. Matthew’s approximately 70-130 meals are served.
