Xavier Winter Inn
In response to the gospel teaching to shelter the homeless, we extend hospitality, fellowship, and shelter to the homeless on cold winter nights
2013 Xavier Winter Inn information will be available in September 2013. If you are a returning volunteer, you do not need to repeat volunteer training. If you are a new volunteer, you will need to attend 1 training either on Wednesday, November 5th or Saturday, November, November 16th. Check back in September for more information on registering for a volunteer session.
Xavier Winter Inn opened in response to the gospel teaching to shelter the homeless. We extend hospitality, fellowship, and shelter to homeless individuals on cold winter nights.
Xavier Winter Inn is part of a collaboration between several congregations and the St. Louis Winter Outreach Group to provide overflow emergency shelter for homeless men and women during the winter months when temperatures drop below 20 degrees. We host overnight visitors in the lower level of the parish center two nights a week when the temperature drops to 20 degrees or below.
Through the generous support of the Parish, the University, Parish Volunteers, SLU Volunteers, and the community, Xavier Winter Inn is possible.
