The landmarked Father’s Heart Ministry comes back into view on 11th Street



Workers yesterday removed the sidewalk bridge and scaffolding from outside the Father’s Heart Ministry Center on 11th Street between Avenue A and Avenue B... marking the near-completetion of the landmarked building's roof replacement...



The roof work is part of a capital improvement project for Father’s Heart Ministry Center, which provides a variety of services, from classes to meal services for the homeless, the elderly and working poor.

The neon tubes for the familiar Jesus Saves cross on the church were removed during the construction... the neon will be returning soon, church officials say...



Find more details about the renovations at their crowdfunding page. And you can read my interview with Carol Vedral, co-founder and executive director of Father's Heart, here.

I'm not a religious person but I've always found something comforting about this place. And I like their ice cream.

Always loved the sight of that "Jesus Saves". Its like an album cover waiting to happen, if it hasn't already been done.

With the warmer weather on the horizon that Alphabet Scoop ice cream is coming soon too...

When we were in the Squats in the 80's this was a place where you felt most welcome

Might be a good venue for Father John Misty?
