Train to promote feeding the hungry


The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train is returning to the Quad Cities on Dec. 5 at 2 p.m.

People in more than 40 towns and cities in eight states will again experience the Holiday Train’s mission of feeding the hungry in our communities.

Headlining the Holiday Train stage in the Quad Cities is rocker Kelly Prescott. Local performers include musicians from St. Paul the Apostle Parish and Sacred Heart Cathedral in Davenport. This is a joint event in cooperation with the City of Davenport, Canadian Pacific and Churches United of the Quad City Area.

This year, people are invited to gather near Modern Woodmen Park in Davenport beginning at noon and enjoy the special local music talents, hot chocolate, cookies and many activities for children and adults. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy the holiday entertainment while awaiting the arrival of the Holiday Train.


Admission is a financial donation or a can of food. All donations will go to support hunger-relief programs, including 26 food pantries and three meal sites, through Churches United of the Quad City Area.

Support The Catholic Messenger’s mission to inform, educate and inspire the faithful of the Diocese of Davenport – and beyond! Subscribe to the print and/or e-edition, or make a one-time donation, today!
