Come Help us Celebrate a Joyful Christmas For All


Around the world, the Christmas banquet with the poor is a cherished moment of the Community of Sant’Egidio. In different cities throughout the United States we will bring together our friends whether they be elderly from nursing homes, those living on the streets, or children in the School of Peace.

During this generous time of giving and sharing, we invite you to help us prepare for this banquet.
