Blessings Bags

We are celebrating Saint Joseph’s Day through service! Here’s more information about the Blessings Bags we put together to give to our dear neighbors at Saint Francis Inn and House of Grace Clinic.

We celebrated Saint Joseph’s Day and Saint Patrick’s Day today! Thank you to our friends who donated items to our Blessings Bags, and who came in to help us put them together. Saint Joseph knew what it is like to struggle as an immigrant and refugee. In honor of Saint Joseph’s Day, the Sisters, staff, volunteers, and friends of the Sisters of Saint Joseph Welcome Center put together Blessings Bags to serve to our dear neighbors in need at Saint Francis Inn and House of Grace Clinic. As Saint Joseph’s Day approaches, we reflect on our ministry to serve those who are poor, marginalized, and vulnerable in Kensington, Philadelphia. We re-commit to our mission to offer opportunities that enable immigrants and others to improve the quality of their lives through access to education and support services. And we welcome you to visit our home with a heart.


Here’s what we put in our bags:

  • Water Bottle
  • Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Floss
  • Gum
  • Chocolate and Hard Candies
  • Bandaides
  • Tea Bags
  • Hand Wipes
  • Comb
