Lantern Light Ministry

Providing a place of peace, support, and encouragement to the working poor and homeless, in downtown New Orleans, as they rebuild their lives.

— Our Mission

. . .  forever moving from despair to Hope!

— Our Vision


Thank You Volunteers!

On Friday, December 6, 2019 Lantern Light held our annual Donor and Volunteer Reception at the Rebuild Center.   We thank all those that attended and hope that this year’s event was enjoyed by all.  We are extremely grateful for the thousands of individuals that support our ministry daily.  We cannot assist the guests that came to our doors daily without your contributions.

We send a huge THANK YOU to Beth Monahan, our kitchen coordinator and our Tuesday Kitchen volunteers for providing beautiful decorations and great food, led by board member David Hardin: Gene Ducote, Dell Jordan, Danny Sobrepera and Joy Zainey. We also thank our musicians for great music, Catherine DeMers, Terance Anderson, and Clarence Robinson.

With Warmest Regards,

The Board and Staff of Lantern Light
