A refreshing change to see a church open to all, mainly "street people" who are taking respite from the weather or taking a moment to rest/sleep, it was full, it is humbling.

This little church will not appear in the tourism booklets. They usually call it “la Iglesia del Padre Angel”. Father Angel Church. They have cushions in the seats and very confortable chairs so that homeless or travelers can rest. They also offer coffee for free...More

This church never closes it's doors and welcomes everyone. During our visit there were a handful of needy people sleeping on the pews and others were eating free food the church had provided. Charity is the virtue of this church.

24 hours open, free wi-fi, free coffee and food for all the homeless and even for pets. I am very impressed with this beautiful social service. For me, this is a real church, real love for people.

side streets. Some of these side streets are wide
pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so
it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
