The Fraternite Notre Dame of Nazareth soup Kitchen was informed last month that their rent increased from $3,400 to $5,500. That significant increase is enough to get the usual person evicted. These Chicago nuns run this soup kitchen in San Francisco, California.
Sister Mary of the Angels said to the San Franciso Chronicle, "All we want to do is help the homeless." She went on to say, "Homeless people often have no affection, and here we can say hello and give them some good food."
Nuns' are bothered by this eviction because of the amount of homeless people they serve on a daily basis. "Our Sisters serve a good, hot meal to 300 persons a day, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.," stated the order on its website. ABC Chicago claims that the Roman Catholic Church looks down on Fraternite Notre Dame because of owning millions of dollars worth of property.
"They also go and bring full meals to senior citizens, and on a different day, they do the same to 25 AIDS patients living in their homes, near the Soup Kitchen."
