Family Promise

Family Promise Needs Volunteers!

We will be hosting Family Promise this week, July 23-29. St. Benedict the Abbot is hosting Family Promise at Mary's House next to St. Patrick church in Canonsburg. We need many volunteers to make this Homeless Family Ministry work.

If you are able to make a meal (5:30 - 6:30 om), please contact Noreen Nalitz at or 724.309.6885.

If you can help with hospitality (6:30 - 8:30 pm), please contact Patty Ross at 412.854.9110 or

If you can help overnight (8:30 pm-6:00 am), please contact Blase Hollot at or 724.747.3301.

If you can help with driving in the morning or afternoon, please contact Dan Bayer at or 724.941.4605.

We hosted four families in May, consisting of six adults and nine children. Please pray for these families as they look for employment and housing.


What is Family Promise?

When I needed a ride you drove me in the big blue van...
When I was tired you gave me a bed to sleep on...
When I was lonely you gave me comfort...
When I was hungry you gave me food..

The Family Promise program is dedicated to helping homeless families stay intact during times of crisis. The Interfaith Hospitality Network in Washington has approximately 32 area churches that provide families with a warm bed, three meals per day, transportation, compassion and comfort.
