The Vinzenzpforte at the Motherhouse of the Sisters of Mercy of St. Vincent de Paul in Hildesheim is more than just a place where needy people who have been hurt by life can get breakfast and lunch. It is a place of encounter and community building.
In “normal times” the Vinzenzpforte is open from Monday to Friday from 9:00-14:00. It is a room at the Motherhouse with 3 large tables where 30 people can sit comfortably. Two sofas for resting and sleeping and a bookcase complete the room. A sanitary area with toilets and showers as well as a kitchen also are part of the facilities.
