Faith In Action
Faith in Action is a coalition of congregations and service groups in Harrisonburg/Rockingham County. The model of this program involves a yearly process of listening, researching, proposing solutions, and gathering together with local leaders to ask for solutions. A similar program has been exceedingly successful in Charlottesville. Contact for more information: email@example.com
This ecumenical program provides free weekly meals on Thursday mornings at 11:00 am in Johnston Hall. The meals are provided by a variety of local area churches scheduled out one year at a time. Four teams of volunteers from Blessed Sacrament do the setup, serving, and cleanup on a monthly basis. We welcome new volunteers for this rewarding ministry. The Christmas meal is a favorite among our regulars.

Is a winter shelter for the Homeless run by a consortium of Harrisonburg/Rockingham places of worship. The shelter moves locations weekly. Our church hosts the week of Thanksgiving where we provide overnight shelter, along with breakfast and dinner each day. Although we typically host a second week in February, we do not supply the volunteers for this week. Many volunteers are needed to provide meals, or to spend the night with our guests.
