On the Frontlines: Jesuits Rally Behind Pope Francis Center

June 15, 2020 — Mornings at Pope Francis Center start just after 6 a.m. The skeleton crew of workers line up to have their temperature checked, then they change into work clothes that are laundered on site every day. Finally, they don gloves and masks and get to work preparing for the 7 a.m. breakfast. Each day Pope Francis Center (PFC) serves over 200 people experiencing homelessness in the Detroit area, providing daily meals, health and hygiene services and hospitality.
