Loaves and Fishes

Welcome to Guardian Angels Loaves and Fishes Ministry!

Guardian Angels serves the Second Sunday of each month at Catholic Charities Dorothy Day Center located near the Xcel Energy Center and St. Joseph’s Hospital in Downtown St. Paul.

There are four Guardian Angels teams, each serving three times per year on the Second Sunday of every month:

  • Team #1: January, May, September – Leads: Mark McKeown, Judy Scheider
  • Team #2: February, June, October – Leads: Tricia/Garrett Gleason, Mary Lambert
  • Team #3: March, July, November – Leads: Michael & Laurie Menke and Suzanne Schmidt
  • Team #4: April, August, December – Leads: Cathy Muggee and Chris Judge

Each team has two co-leads. The co-leads divide the work, one calling/scheduling volunteers and the other shopping (or ordering) food.

General Serving Schedule:

2:00/2:15 – 4:20: Prep Food and Prep Cafeteria
4:20 – 4:30: Confirm Assignments/Prayer
4:30 – 5:15: Serve Guests
5:15 – 5:30/5:45: Light clean up and depart

The co-leads orchestrate duties & timing with the volunteers. Some volunteers stay the entire shift (~2:15 – ~5:30) and others come for only a segment of the time (to prep food only or serve food only). For more information on schedule, rules and roles of a volunteer click here.
