There are approximately 14,000 homeless people in the city of Atlanta. Each year from November 1 to March 31, The Shrine ministers to a small portion of the homeless along with numerous organizations and churches by being a part of the Bashor Night Shelter. The Shrine hosts 30-35 of the 100+ guests and by providing sack lunches, dinner and overnight assistance for approximately 30 of the 150 nights.

Night Shelter Foot Care

Night Shelter Footcare is an opportunity to be with guests at our Shelter and respond to the Gospel's call to be in the company of and serve the poor.

This very rewarding experience is available on Wednesday nights, November 1 through March 31. Some required training is provided so that volunteers can take care of guest's weary feet.

Haiti Outreach
Haiti Outreach

The Haiti Outreach group communicates with our sister parish Notre Dame de la Nativite in Malfety. Our parish has a regular collection to support our community in Haiti. We share our common experiences both personal and faithful - a community to community connection. Thus, we are creating an opportunity to nurture real and long-term relationships.

Pride Outreach

The Shrine has always welcomed all of God's children. During PRIDE week each year, we celebrate God's diversity by maintaining a booth in the park.

St. Vincent de Paul Society

Members of the Shrine’s Society of St. Vincent de Paul (or "Vincentians") are men and women who strive to grow spiritually by offering person-to-person service to individuals in need in our community. It is this personalized involvement that makes the work of the Society unique. An essential precept of the Society's work is to provide help while conscientiously maintaining the confidentiality and dignity of those who are served.  This aid may take the form of intervention, consultation, or often through direct dollar or in-kind service.


We are part of an international society of friends united by a spirit of poverty, humility, and sharing, which is nourished by prayer and reflection, mutually supportive gatherings, and adherence to the founding principle of charity.

The list of services of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in the United States is endless. No work of charity is foreign to the Society. To quote our patron, St. Vincent de Paul: "Charity is infinitely inventive."

The Shrine's St. Vincent de Paul group meets every first and third Sunday of the month in the Parish Center from 9:45AM to 10:45AM. The monthly door collection is every third Sunday after both of the Masses.

Check donations for this worthy charity can be made out to the St. Vincent de Paul Society of the Shrine I.C. and either mailed to the Shrine (48 Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. SW, Atlanta, GA 30303) or put into the Sunday collection basket.

If you are interested in joining the Shrine's St. Vincent de Paul group you can contact them by calling the Parish Office at 404-521-1866.
