HIV/AIDS Ministry: Dedication Overcomes Difficulties Like many of you, Dan Wakefield, director of our HIV/AIDS Ministry, and Sister Kathleen Minchin, director emerita and one of its founders, have been especially challenged during this pandemic in gathering food and essential products, such as toilet paper. Almost all of the ministry’s clients live at or below poverty level, and benefits don’t cover things like personal items and paper products. But the two are persevering! The pantry isn’t full, but shelves aren’t bare. And they’ve found new ways to offer service, such as a monthly drive-thru café, complete with a home-made meal.
