The mission of the St. Louis sandwich program...to help people in need! We are truly blessed to be able to provide food and comfort to hundreds of people who visit us each year.
More than twenty years ago Rev. Msgr. William A. Schwinger (1979-1995) began the St. Louis sandwich program. In the spirit of Louis IX (King of France), Msgr. Schwinger reached out to those in our community who were most in need.
Each weekday from 9 AM to 11 AM Susan, our director, prepares sandwiches to serve to approximately 20 people who come to the rectory door every day. Although many are homeless they come from all walks of life—men, women, and children. With encouragement and compassion Susan welcomes each and every one of our neighbors.
