Members of the Secular (Lay) Franciscan Order have created a 501c3 nonprofit called "Franciscan Ministries Inc." We serve the mentally ill, homeless and poor throughout Detroit. Our Street Ministries work out of the back of St. Aloysius Catholic Church Detroit. We load Sandwiches, hot coffee, hot chocolate, cold drinks, some clothing and hygiene supplies onto trucks, vans and cars and deliver needed services to the poorest of the poor in our community. We meet at St. Aloysius Catholic Church on Washington Blvd., make the beverages and load up the vehicles. Then head out. If you are looking for a hands on ministry that places you in the street with those in need you are welcome to come and join us. Help us to become "Instruments of Peace" in Downtown Detroit.
