Our Lady of the Road is the ministry outreach of the Saint Peter Claver Catholic Worker community in South Bend. While the Catholic Worker houses are located on South Saint Joseph Street, the drop-in center, known as Our Lady of the Road, is located at 744 South Main Street, and is open weekend mornings to offer breakfast, laundry, showers, and, most importantly, hospitality to our community.

Parishioners of Saint Joseph join guests and staff at Our Lady of the Road to prepare and serve breakfast on the third Saturday of every month. We gather at the drop-in center just before 8am to prepare food. We help serve breakfast at 9:30am and then clean up, which lasts for about an hour. Volunteers are welcome to help for the whole time or just a portion of the morning. We also welcome food donations of any sort – healthy breakfast food and coffee is especially helpful!


  • Simply show up at Our Lady of the Road, identify yourself as being from Saint Joseph Parish, and roll up your sleeves.
  • If you cannot make it, consider providing a donation of healthy breakfast food and coffee for our parishioners to serve the guests.
