Mission: The mission of St. Francis Seraph Ministries is to nurture and nourish the urban poor in body, mind, and spirit.

Serving Our Community: St. Francis Seraph Ministries continues the Franciscan legacy for serving the impoverished in Cincinnati for over 175 years. Located in the St. Anthony Center in Over-the-Rhine, we feed hundreds of guests Monday–Friday in the Mother Teresa of Calcutta Dining Room during breakfast and dinner. We also provide thousands of bag lunches every month to anyone in need of a mobile meal. Our award-winning Cooking for the Family program teaches families how to plan and cook affordable, nutritious meals. The nationally recognized Sarah Center programs for sewing, quilting, and jewelry making empower local women with life and work skills. All of our programs function through the generous support of more than 2,000 annual volunteers.
