Our Story

When St. Adalbert’s parish school was closed in 1985, our community was gripped with grief, frustration, and a deep fear for the future. In their anxiety, many of our people sought an answer through prayer. It became abundantly clear that the choices were not ours; that He was giving us direction! We responded. Twenty-four hours after the school closing, June 26, 1985, the Response To Love Center was born. Here, the focus is the holistic treatment of poverty: loving care of the economically deprived, the spiritually poor, the emotionally battered, the isolated, the wounded and the broken..


What We Do

We show people the path to self-sufficiency by providing them a variety of compassionate programs.

Under the leadership of Sr. Mary Johnice Rzadkiewicz CSSF and a host of volunteers the building was transformed into an outreach center for the community a center of love and acceptance for all who enter.

  • Here, our dining room feeds the hungry;
  • the chapel provides spiritual warmth;
  • and our food pantry stretch our families’ thin budgets.


Through prayer, silence and listening, God directs us.

We step out in faith and

respond with a compassionate presence and accompaniment.
