Your prayers are as valuable to us as other gifts.
Please remember people who are homeless and hungry in your prayers, as well as the staff and volunteers who make The Father McKenna Center a place of welcome and healing.
Our work at the Center is rooted in the values and ideals of Father Horace McKenna, a Jesuit priest, and thus we are consciously Ignatian in our way of proceeding. St. Ignatius invites us to experience the Gospel by putting ourselves into the story, to experience the sights and the sounds and the sensations of Jesus’ followers. In much the same way, we invite you to place yourself prayerfully in the story, as it were, of a person who is homeless. To imagine the sights, sounds, and sensations that our guests experience on the streets. As you explore our website, you will see images and read stories that invite you in. You are welcome to prayerfully enter into the story. Prayer can be a very powerful connector to other people.
