5.00 PM + MEAL
6.15 PM + HOLY COMMUNION
Feast Incarnate, a weekly hospitality ministry of University Lutheran Church of the Incarnation, started in November of 1988. It was a direct response to the situation of two members of the parish at that time, who had been diagnosed with HIV, and who had been rejected by friends, families and partners. The evening was planned as a safe environment, free from prejudice and discrimination. An invitation was issued to the HIV/AIDS community to come and share an evening of food and fellowship. Every Tuesday since, University Lutheran has served a meal for the HIV/AIDS community of University City in Philadelphia.
As of mid-2015, Feast Incarnate is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and operates under the direction of an executive board. Feast Incarnate has expanded its reach to all those in need of a meal within our community. The organization employs the help of volunteers from around the region, including service fraternities, local congregations, and members of the church, who help prepare meals, greet visitors, serve food, and clean up the church every week.
