Peter Maurin Center


The Peter Maurin Center offers hot meals three times a week. We open on Tuesdays at 10:15 for prayer and reflection. From 11:00 until noon is fellowship and refreshments. The meal is served from noon until 2:00 p.m., after which there is time for more fellowship and addressing the guests needs. On Fridays and Sundays, the doors open at noon for fellowship, music, and refreshment. From 1:00 until 3:00 p.m. the meal is served after a prayer.

 The Peter Maurin Center is an inner-city Drop-In site for disenfranchised folks, living in the very impoverished neighborhood of the Greater Summit Lake Region of Akron, OH. It was opened nine years ago, around Thanksgiving 2006. Several area Parishes were instrumental in the launching of PMC and over the years have continually provided an enormous amount of support for this ministry. The PMC Ministry has been a two-way street. We have been successful in enriching the journeys of many men, women and children that have come through the doors of The Center. On the other hand, The Center has provided many opportunities for our parishioners, and others, to “Preach their faith” as Saint Francis has said, “… without using words.”
