On the afternoon of the third Sunday in February every year, the streets of downtown South Bend are teeming with people who have come to walk a mile in the shoes of many women for whom walking is the only means of transportation. The Winter Walk is a major fundraiser for St. Margaret’s House, a day shelter serving the needs of women and children in our community for over twenty-seven years.
The Cathedral of Saint James proudly houses St. Margaret’s House in the building behind our church, and right now, SMH is returning the favor by housing our offices on the third floor while our building is being renovated. Some come on! Let’s support the Winter walk more than ever financially and with our feet.
Registration starts at 1:30 p.m. and walk at 2:30 p.m. from the County-City Building. Plan on hot chocolate, cookies, and popcorn at St. Margaret’s House following the walk!
