St. Joseph Evening Meal

St. Joseph Evening Meal guests

The St. Joseph Evening Meal is a ministry of our parish, St. Pius X, which sustains itself with funds from the annual St. Joseph's Party in March, individual contributions, and an occasional gift in memory of a loved one. 

It is truly one of the largest ecumenical outreach efforts in the Quad Cities. Along with members and groups of our parish, there are approximately 49 churches, fraternal organization, religious orders, government agencies, and businesses who organize, prepare and serve the nightly meals.  Nightly members at the meal site continue to increase.  In the past three months, we've served 2,895 hungry men, women, and children.

We have a few nights open for groups willing to prepare and serve in upcoming months.  If you, your family, or a group of which you are a member, would like more information about how to become involved in this ministry, please call Rita at 786-3799.  If you would like to help but do not have a group to help prepare a meal, you are still welcome to come and help serve any night of the week. Please call Rita to find out the nights your help may be most needed.

Thank you for your support of this ministry.  Please join us for our major annual fundraiser for the St. Joseph Evening Meal. This year's St. Joseph's Party will be held on Sunday, March 25th.  We'd love to see you there!
