On October 30, 2017 Bishop Thomas Zinkula visited and toured the Cafe on Vine, our neighbor and partner that provides free afternoon lunches to our neighbors and participants,. During his time at the agency, the Bishop chatted with lunch guests and community leaders, greeted volunteers, served hot meals, and helped clean tables during the regular afternoon lunch.
October 30 Shelter Visit
Following the visit at the Cafe, Bishop Zinkula took a brief stroll with Sister Mary Ann Vogel, CHM and other neighbors. Next on his agenda was a tour of our Humility of Mary Shelter, located just one street south. There, staff familiarized him with the work of the Shelter.
Bishop Zinkula assumed his leadership role in the Davenport Roman Catholic Diocese in June 2017. This event marked his first official visit to our CCC neighborhood.
