MHI Emergency Response to Covid-19

Magnificat Houses is taking all CDC recommended steps to protect the health and safety of our staff and those we serve. Please know that we will resume our services--our calling--as soon as it is safe and prudent.

OPEN:

Our 16 homes remain fully operational with guests in self-quarantine; those in our temporary emergency housing program are allowed to remain in quarantine until the health crisis eases. We are delivering food and supplies as usual, and house leaders finding creative ways to keep the community.

CLOSED:

Until Further Notice

Admissions Office: Sorry, all our housing is full and in quarantine until the crises passes.

Business Office: Staff is in self-quarantine and working remotely from home.

St. Joseph Clubhouse: Staff is staying in touch daily with its members via phone, Zoom and social media.

Loaves & Fishes: Service is temporarily halted as we are unable to staff the location; understandably, large numbers of volunteer groups canceled due to Covid-19.

The Mustard Seed & Anawim Thrift Shop: Closed for the safety of shoppers and staff

CANCELED:

All scheduled group meetings, Mass services, AA meetings, and community events. We are staying in touch safely.

Please keep us and our guests in your prayers. And kindly donate if you can. Thanks!
