"May our Christian communities really be places of hospitality, listening, and communion!"
-Pope Francis

Through craft, hospitality, and fidelity, Shrine Coffee will seek to “promote the culture of encounter” as Pope Francis & his predecessors have encouraged, to provide an oasis from the false divide of mind and spirit, reason and faith, that modern man is accustomed to, and plagued by – and to do so in a manner that follows in the Church’s rich tradition of cultivating and promoting the beautiful and the good in service of the true.

Shrine Coffee will be a non-profit, third wave community coffeehouse, being built and operated as an extension of the Oblates of St. Joseph Shrine ministry in Santa Cruz, CA.  We pray it will be a means to "open wide the doors" to all who seek, building a welcoming space at the heart of the Shrine of St. Joseph to encourage encounters with God & with one another, for sinner & saint alike, and to do so through beauty and hospitality.

Your ongoing, monthly pledge (tax deductible!) will help us cover some the many costs of building Shrine Coffee -- our zoning permit has been secured from the city of Santa Cruz, we have completed the design phase, and are picking up our building permit in July, with the goal of opening the renovated doors of what is now the St. Marello Conference Room in early 2018, God willing.  Until then we will be hosting "Shrine Coffee Sundays" each week after the 11am mass, to pour locally roasted coffee & locally sourced teas, to raise awareness of the project and continue to energize our capital fundraising campaign.  Every little bit helps, thank you for your support and please share with anyone you think may be interested in partnering with us on this project--  & visit our website for further info and project updates!
