KIRK PLAYERS—MEET HARRIET BEECHER STOWE


Loyola students build relationships with those in need through the student-run Labre Homeless Ministry. Offering food and friendship Loyola senior Michael Conway esti-


mates that he’s made, packaged, and delivered more than a thousand meals to the homeless living on the streets of downtown Chicago. Sometimes it’s hot dogs and fruit; other times it’s soup and bread. And it’s always served with friendship in mind. Conway and other students meet


every Thursday to prepare dozens of meals and take them to those in need through the student-run Labre Home- less Ministry. They realize what they’re doing won’t do much to end homeless- ness or hunger in the city—but it will go a long way toward building relation- ships with people who often are alone and isolated from society. “Our main mission is to build solidari- ty with people,” Conway says. “The food


is really a bridge to start a conversation. And I’ve been really struck by how many legitimate friendships I’ve made with people we meet when we go out.” Labre Homeless Ministry started at


Saint Ignatius High School in Cleveland in 2002. Since then, the movement has spread to other schools and universi- ties across the country; Loyola students started their own Labre group in 2007. The name refers to Saint Benedict Joseph Labre, a pilgrim who survived on alms and shared what he had with others in need. “We try to remind our friends on the


street of their humanity,” says Nicole Chmela of Campus Ministry. “And to help our students recognize the home- less instead of just looking away and ignoring them.”


“ Our main mis- sion is to build solidarity with people. The food is really a bridge to start a conversation.”
