Get Involved


Connect with Others

peaceful presence

Central is a space of peaceful prayer on the first Wednesday of each month from 10:30 to 11:30 am.  The Ignatian Associates invite all who would like to gather for a time of silent prayer.  You are invited to then stay for our Wednesday Community Lunch.


wednesday Community lunches

Each Wednesday, we host a downtown community lunch beginning at 11:45 AM. We are becoming well known for healthy and affordable gourmet food and a place for good conversation. Buffet line closes at 1:00.

Serve Our Community


Every night in November Central opens its doors to serve as an overflow shelter for homeless children and their parents. This program is coordinated by the Saint Paul Area Council of Churches for Ramsey County.  

Volunteer signups coming soon!


Visit the 'In Our Community' page to learn more about how Central is working outside the church walls! 


Give to Others

Gift Market

Central celebrates the season of Christmas, encouraging members and friends to make gifts that will echo in the lives of others in our community and around the world.


The Giving Tree

Central celebrates Christmas and has long-supported a “Giving Tree.” Working with strong year-round organizations, Central encourages members and friends to pick out gifts for needy families to be distributed anonymously at Christmas.
