The Church of the Holy Apostles, New York, NY

The Church of the Holy Apostles runs the largest soup kitchen in Manhattan and, in the Episcopal Church nationally. Every weekday, we serve a hot, nutritious meal to some 1,000 of our hungry, often homeless neighbors. We also try to respond to our guests' other myriad needs through our counseling and referrals program, helping folks who are looking for jobs, clothing, detox services, medical care, housing, or assistance with entitlements. Our advocacy efforts seek to address the root causes of hunger and poverty, calling elected officials to care for the most vulnerable among us, and raising public awareness of the needs of our guests. A summer intern at Holy Apostles will have the opportunity to work in various aspects of the soup kitchen program, from serving food and wiping tables to helping guests find a place to stay or a pair of shoes. He or she might also undertake a special educational or advocacy project, depending on interest, need and what is going on in the world around us. Holy Apostles is famous for its soup kitchen, but it is also a lively, diverse urban parish, a community of pilgrims on a journey of faith and ministry together. The Eucharistic meal we share on Sundays is the center of our life together, and the impetus for the meals offered during the week; in fact, they happen in the same space, because the church is the soup kitchen's main dining room. A summer intern will have the opportunity to participate fully in our parish liturgy, education and fellowship. We hope that she/he will bring her/his own faith and doubt to our common life, that she/he will make her/his own connections between worship and social action.
