Archdiocese still feeding Guam’s homeless


Catholic Church stops dine-in but still provides boxed meals to the hungry at Ministry to the Homeless Soup Kitchen

The Archdiocese of Agaña’s Ministry to the Homeless Soup Kitchen continues to provide meals to the island’s hungry and homeless population at its facility in Hagatña, doing so in an adjusted manner during this time of the COVID-19 emergency.

Our needy brothers and sisters in the community can no longer dine in at the Ministry to the Homeless facility. However, they receive prepared meals which are boxed to go as they line up – at least six feet apart – outside the facility.

The Catholic Church continues to feed Guam’s homeless and hungry every day at 6 p.m., seven days a week, 365 days a year.

Ministry to the Homeless replaced Kamalen Karidat as the archdiocese’s ministry operating the soup kitchen and a thrift store more than two years ago. The facility is located across from Julalae Shopping Center in Hagatña at 306 Father Duenas Avenue.

Thank you to contributors, volunteers

Father Mike Crisostomo, the Director of Ministry to the Homeless, expresses thanks to the many individuals, families and organizations that contribute in different ways to the feeding of Guam’s homeless population.

The archdiocese also extends gratitude to Graphic Center/Island Color & Copy which donated a new, full-size, color sign to Ministry to the Homeless last February.

Ministry to the Homeless welcomes donations of canned goods and other items to help replenish its food bank. Please call manager Doris Royal at 472-4569 if you wish to help.
