1/25/2010 – Shelter Spotlight

January 25, 2010


How Ya’ll Doing On This Wonderful Monday? I’m Personally Feelin’ Pretty Good About Tonight’s Shelter Spotlight, And I’m Sure You’d Love To Know Why? Well What’s The Craziest Idea You’ve Ever Had? Cliff Diving? Bungee Jumping? Maybe Spearheading Soup Kitchen Operations For Your Local Church Since The 1970’s?  And That’s Exactly What Father Francis Schweitzer Did. Today Holy Family Church’s Soup Kitchen Stands As One Of The Best Soup Kitchens Serving The Less Fortunate Residents Of Columbus, Ohio. The Holy Family Church Is Located At 584 West Broad Street – Columbus, OH 43215. The Office Can Be Reached By Phone At (614) 221-4323.

Holy Family was established in 1877 just west of downtown Columbus, Ohio in the historic area known as Franklinton. Holy Family is home to many good people and quite a number of ministries, including a soup kitchen and the Jubilee Museum. Our parish membership is just over 500 families. In addition to our English liturgies, we are the indult parish for the Latin Tridentine Mass which is celebrated weekly at 9:00 a.m. on Sundays and on the First Saturday of each month at 9:00 a.m. and Holy Days. Holy Family operates a soup kitchen and food pantry where we serve over 700 hot meals each day, Monday through Friday and provides groceries weekly to over 250 families. The Jubilee Museum, founded in 1998, houses treasures of our Catholic Heritage. Its extensive inventory fills the entire former high school of the parish, and has been visited by Cardinal Marchisano, Cardinal Arinze, Father Benedict Groeschel and thousands of tourists. Holy Family Parish has survived major floods (1913 and 1957), a fire in the mid-1950’s, and the incursion of three freeways. We remain a vibrant parish with a variety of activities and organizations to meet the needs and interests of all ages“. – From Their Website – http://www.holyfamilycolumbus.org
