Your Real Champion: The Least of My Brothers

Your Real Champions of the week are Barry Martin and Deacon Anthony Willoughby from St. John’s Hospice!

St. John’s Hospice is a safe haven in center city Philadelphia for men experiencing homelessness.  Each day, a hot meal is served to as many as 400 visitors. The hospice also offers case management, on-site nursing, showers, and a mailroom for hundreds of men. There is also a 12-bed residence for medically fragile men and a safe place to sleep from 10pm to 6am for an additional 27 men who need shelter. Barry and Deacon Willoughby are men who see God in the face of every person who looks for help.  Lend your support.
