Xavier Winter Inn

Xavier Winter Inn opened in response to the gospel teaching to shelter the homeless. We extend hospitality, fellowship, and shelter to homeless individuals on cold winter nights.

Xavier Winter Inn is part of a collaboration between several congregations and the St. Louis Winter Outreach Group to provide overflow emergency shelter for homeless men and women during the winter months (on Wednesdays and Thursdays) when temperatures drop below 20 degrees. We host overnight visitors in the lower level of the parish center two nights a week when the temperature drops to 20 degrees or below.

Through the generous support of the Parish, the University, Parish Volunteers, SLU Volunteers, and the community, Xavier Winter Inn is possible.
