When Covid-19 first appeared, the staff at St Mary’s House of Welcome recognised that they would need to adapt in order to continue serving the disadvantaged people of Melbourne. Opened by the Daughters of Charity 60 years ago, St Mary’s House of Welcome is known as a place where homeless people can go for a meal and a shower; a safe space for people living on the streets.
