Carol Service in Dublin City

The Annual Carol Service and Collection for the Capuchin Day Centre for Homeless took place on Saturday, December 8th 2012. A great tradition, so many Day Centre Volunteers, Friends, An Garda Siochána Community Policing, and Capuchin Friars join forces to help the homeless.

Three Choirs led the songs and Christmas Carols over the whole day from 9.00 a.m until 6.00 p.m. at the GPO in O'Connell St, Dublin and despite so many challenges people have to face, people once again were extraordinarily generous (watch this space for the final total contributed)

Br. Kevin and his staff and volunteers provide breakfasts for 200 people daily and dinner for up to 600 people, Mondays through Saturdays. On Wednesdays there are take-away groceries given out containing essentials such as cereals, perishables, fresh meats, bread, cheese and butter. There are counselling services and medical services available at the centre as well as shower and fresh clothes facilities. See www.homeless.ie for more...
