The St. Francis de Sales Community Housing Fair was funded by one of 27 Campaign for Charity & Justice parish grants that Catholic Charities gave out to cover innovative projects that address our poor and vulnerable neighbors’ local needs. Funds were raised last during the second parish collection on the last Sunday before Thanksgiving last year.

When is the Community Housing Fair?  This Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 1 – 4 p.m.

Where? St. Francis de Sales Parish Hall, 135 E 96th Street (corner of Lexington Ave.) NYC

Nearest subways?  Take the 6 or Q trains

In a society marked by the deepening divide between rich and poor, the gospel calls us to radical and self-giving love. Catholic Social Teaching Principles teach us how to respond to social justice issues facing our world: by meeting the needs of the poor and vulnerable and opposing the structures that perpetuate poverty and abuse the vulnerable.
