Newport News church helps those struggling with homelessness

From Virginia-

St. Paul's Episcopal Church brings together food and faith in its efforts to help individuals and families struggling with homelessness. The church is a landmark of downtown Newport News — its building was constructed in 1900 — and has developed a close community with its volunteers and regular visitors.

Father Richard Budd, the interim pastor at St. Paul's for the past two years, said his most rewarding aspect of the church's homeless outreach is the Bible study he participates in twice a week.

"I love to do them," he said. "There are very knowledgeable people with strong religious backgrounds that attend regularly. We have great discussions, and we're able to make applications to daily life."
