Dinner Church Liturgy

Opening Prayer.4804On Wednesday, January 21, 2015, our extraordinary footcare women from Olympia, Washington, led by recently ordained Catholic Woman Priest, Rev. Kathleen Bellefeuille-Rice, conducted a “Dinner Church Liturgy,” which included dinner preparation and table setting by all the women, and serving and eating a tasty taco dinner as part of the liturgy itself, along with the normal Eucharist. It was a unique experience. We thank each and all of our footcare team for the wonderful evening and all their hard work and love involved. See photos HERE.

Annual Homeless Memorial

2014 Homeless MemorialOn Friday, December 19, the LACW attended the annual Homeless Memorial for all skid row residents who died over the past year. Catherine represented the LACW as she read the names of our guests at the Hippie Kitchen, and former community member Jim Parkhurst, who passed from this life into eternal life. With each person named Catherine gave a brief background of who that person was. It was a nice ceremony to remember and honor our departed sisters and brothers. May they rest in peace.

LACW Joins In March Against Police Violence

Racist Police Violence.4521 On Saturday, December 13, the LACW was represented at a peaceful march against police violence that began at Pershing Square and ended at Union Station with stops along the way at LAPD Headquarters and the Federal Court. Recent unjust court decisions to not indict white police officers in the murder of unarmed black males was the bases for this march, which coincided with “Black Lives Matter” marches across the nation, the largest being in New York and Washington, DC, where tens of thousands gathered in the streets.

Angel City Chorale Serenades At The Hippie Kitchen


On Saturday, December 13, the Angel City Chorale made their annual visit to Skid Row to sing Christmas Carols for one hour in our dining garden. Everyone from guests eating in the garden to volunteers and community members thoroughly enjoyed the hour. They seem to get better with each visit. Near the end of the concert they again spread out among the tables and invited everyone to join in a sing-a-long. The entire hour was a wonderful holiday treat. Thank you Angel City Chorale for making time to visit our garden and spread the holiday spirit among our guests. Blessings upon all and Merry Christmas.
