The Open Door Community on Ponce de Leon Avenue in Atlanta is a Christian community patterned after Dorothy Day’s Catholic Worker House. The members of the community minister to homeless people by serving meals, providing shower facilities/clean clothes, and providing spiritual nourishment as well. They also have a very active prison ministry and serve as advocates on social issues affecting the poor in Atlanta.
For the past 25 years, the parishioners of St. Jude have come together to support this loving community at Christmas by selecting and purchasing Christmas gifts for the members of the community. Since they are volunteers and live solely on donations, they look forward to our generosity each year. We are their Christmas!
Please come back later this fall to see more information about how to sign up to give gifts to these deserving people!
