The diocesan mobile shower unit operates as the Showers of Blessings. It serves those in need by meeting one of life’s most basic human dignities–cleanliness. The opportunity to maintain personal hygiene can reduce health problems, raise self-esteem and increase employment potential and social acceptance.
Showers of Blessings operates on a weekly basis at various churches in and around San Diego throughout the week. Volunteers host the showers which include: clean clothes, socks, toiletries, fresh towels and a friendly smile for about 15-30 people each week. The showers rotate to other churches around the diocese, and support the Interfaith Rotational Shelter Ministry. St. Paul’s Cathedral, San Diego hosts the showers the second Saturday morning of the month.
