The Franciscan Shelter House at 748 S. Preston Street held a ground-breaking ceremony May 7 for a new expansion. The Friars of Our Lady of Consolation of Mount St. Francis, Ind., Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz and members of the shelter house’s board of directors took part in the ceremony.

One half of the new 6,800-square-foot building will house a larger dining room that will accommodate 450 lunches daily. The other half will be dedicated to storing food donations from businesses, organization and individuals. The new facility will be directly adjacent to the existing building.

The construction will begin later this week and is expected to be complete by the end of the year.
