Blessed Sarnelli Community

The Blessed Sarnelli Community serves those most poor and vulnerable in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. Students prepare a meal for 150 guests. Conversation is an important component of the ministry. The Sarnelli Community is not to be labeled a soup kitchen; rather, they are a hospitality center where dignity and attention are given to each individual along with a hot meal. For more information, please visit the Blessed Sarnelli Community Website.

Make a meal and serve it with fellow classmates. Twice-monthly visits on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 3 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. (five hours of service learning).
