Open Evening of Edmund Rice House
10th June 2019
Opening of Edmund Rice House
We are excited to announce that we opened our new 13-bed homeless hostel in Gravesend on the 10th June 2019. We will be able to support 13 residents between the ages of 18 to 65 for 6 months.
St John's Catholic Comprehensive School, its staff and Year 13 students were 'sleeping out' on Thursday 22nd March, to raise funds for the 'House of Mercy, Gravesend'.
Led by their prefect team, students and teachers spent a night gaining insight into the hardship of homelessness in pursuit of helping charities like 'House of Mercy' eradicate homelessness in our community all together.
We are very grateful for the donations and support.
