On Nov. 19, for the second year in a row, St. Mary Catholic Church in Aspen opened its doors to the homeless, offering them a nighttime refuge from the elements and the deadly risk of hypothermia.Volunteers are needed in a variety of functions to staff the night shelter at St. Marys and the Day Center at the Schultz Health & Human Services Building. Orientation for new volunteers will be held Tuesday, Dec. 4, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at St. Marys Church, and on Tuesday, Dec. 11, from 6-7:30 p.m. at The Right Door, Schultz Health & Human Services Building. Donations to the winter shelter may be made in care of St. Marys Church.
