Christ House (Tuesdays)

  • Service Time: Every Tuesday students will meet at the H-2 bus at 4:15 pm and return by 7:00 pm.
  • Description: Come cook for and serve dinner to the residents at Christ House. This ministry has attracted Trinity students who want to truly encounter the sick and homeless in our city. Christ House, a residential medical facility, offers caring, and complete healthcare to homeless men and women. As one volunteer put it, the people that you see on the streets become more real to you, with real stories, when you cook for and serve a meal to them.

Franciscan Monastery (Saturdays)

  • Trinity students have the opportunity to work in an organic garden right here in the middle of the city. If you feel close to our Mother Earth and find peace being in the outdoors, growing food for poor people in the District, this is the place for you on Saturdays. It’s so easy to go on Saturday mornings: it’s just a short walk from the Brookland metro station! All food grown in the garden is donated to the food banks in the District of Columbia.
  • Meet at the Trinity shuttle on Saturday mornings and Wednesday afternoons to join in this satisfying, mostly outdoor, service in the garden.  Please note the dress code, below! 
  • To find out more about the organic garden, please contact Lou Maroulis, the Master Gardener.
  • Directions:  Students meet at the Trinity Shuttle, which goes to the Brookland Metro station. Upon arrival, either transfer to the H6 bus–direction “Fort Lincoln” and disembark at 14th and Quincy Streets, NE, or walk uphill on Newton Street, NE to 14th Street, NE and turn left for 14th and Quincy Streets NE (approximately 15-minute walk). Upon arrival, ask the Monastery’s security guard for directions to the greenhouse in the back behind the Monastery’s Gift Shop.
