Weeder posted information about the St Boniface Church in San Francisco which started an initiative to invite the homeless indoors for the cold winter nights and said the cathedral would now do the same.
Weeder said the cathedral had been harshly criticised in the past for not doing anything about the homeless people who slept on the property.
“Three years ago we closed what we called ‘the arch’ which was a feeding programme for the homeless because it became a gathering point for criminal elements and people’s lives were threatened. But we have not been living the crossbow mandate, which is in St John’s Gospel which says ‘I was hungry and you did not feed me, I was naked and you did not clothe me’. We have been harshly criticised about people sleeping on our grounds and not doing anything about it,” he said.
