St James Emmaus Ministry

Inner City Cookouts

inner_cityDuring the summer, Emmaus Ministry hosts the “Summer Sizzler” neighborhood cookout at Bishop Foery Foundation by which we maintain a presence in the lives of those living in the poor neighborhoods of the south side. Hundreds of free hot dogs, chips, drinks and popsicles are served each year. Toys, bouncy houses and games for all the youth are available. Eight new bicycles are given away each year! Emmaus Ministry is grateful for the many volunteers who bring the love, joy and the presence of Christ to the families and youth of the south side.
