Incarnate Word volunteers each make a Tuna Casserole at their home and these casseroles can then be dropped off in the freezer that is located one floor above the Parish Office in the upstairs lobby. The casseroles can be dropped off any day before the month's deadline (2nd Thursday of the month). Please sign in on the sheet provided when you drop off your casserole. Pans and lids are available next to the freezer for your use.
Through the St. Patrick Casserole Program, church groups and thousands of volunteers from across St. Louis provide daily hot meals to the homeless.St. Patrick Center supplies recipes (one for each day of the month) and 12" x 10" aluminum casserole pans to the volunteers, who purchase ingredients, assemble the recipes and freeze the casseroles. Volunteer drivers then drive the frozen casseroles to St. Patrick Center, where they are heated in the ovens and served piping hot with salad, bread, fruit and desserts. These procedures ensure that health-and-safety standards are met.The casseroles are served for lunch in St. Patrick Center’s Shamrock Club and dinner at St. Patrick Center’s transitional living center, its Women’s Night Program and at its evening relapse-prevention meetings.
