Product Description

Only a few miles from the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall - symbols of the American dream - stretches the Kensington district of Philadelphia. In the shadow of these historic symbols of opportunity and prosperity live men, women and children invisible to tourists and most of their neighbors, people battling unemployment, chronic illness, homelessness, addictions, and unrelenting poverty. The Franciscan Friars Minor came to Kensington in the 1970's and began the simple ministry of serving a warm meal to about 25 people each day. Today, the number has grown to about 500 people daily. The ministering community at St. Francis Inn includes college interns, local volunteers, and Franciscan priests, Brothers, and Sisters. Their spirituality of service, compassion and fraternity leads them to welcome men and women of all races and religions unconditionally to the warmth of the Inn. The Friars and their "family" regard their guests as brothers and sisters in Christ, and welcome them each day as if to dinner at a fine restaurant. The moving stories of the community members who serve and the guests who dine make "We Have a Table for Four Ready" a powerful program of love, laughter and tears. Running time 58:20. Suitable for family viewing but may be too intense for young children.

Tremendous evangelical tool!

Review: This is my second DVD of The St Francis Inn. It has been seen by many individuals and groups, and is always in demand. It is a well done documentary on the ministry of the Franciscans and volunteers that serve the poor in the Kensington district of Philadelphia. I wholeheartedly recommend it!

an eye opener

Review: We shared this DVD with the RCIA class....showing them the need for ministry...It captivated them. Most of them signed up to help in various ministries within the parish/church. Teens were also amazed and watched wide-eyed during a youth group meeting. Best Uses: Adult Viewers; Describe Yourself: Casual Viewer; Pros: Informative

Very good for my college freshmen

Review: This was excellent for showing students poverty in the United States as well as demonstrating a powerful Christian response. Pros: Engaging characters, Entertaining, Great Cinematography, High Production Value, Informative, Original

Well done, great teaching tool!

Review: We have been to St. Francis Inn dozens of times over the years and had heard about this movie. It was tearful, accurate and informative. We have watched it together now as a family and will continue to share it with others. We will show it at an annual retreat, entitled "Home Sweet Home," given each year for teenagers. At this retreat, teens sleep outside in cardboard boxes overnight to raise awareness for the plight of the poor. What better way for them to become aware than to see this moving DVD. Thank you for taking an interest in St. Francis Inn and for the creation of this film. It is a treasure and we are grateful to have it in our library.
