Potbelly Milkshake Sales Benefit Campus Ministry

Papal ShakeThe Potbelly Sandwich Shop at Monroe Street Market, across the street from The Catholic University of America, is selling a special papal milkshake in preparation for Pope Francis’s visit to campus on Sept. 23.

For every “papal shake” sold at that location, 50 cents will go to benefit CUA’s Office of Campus Ministry mission trips. The milkshake will be sold until Sept. 27.

Danielle Flood, the AmeriCorps VISTA representative in Campus Ministry, says the idea for the milkshake benefit came from a similar treat being sold at Potbelly locations in Philadelphia. Campus Ministry reached out to the Potbelly at Monroe Street Market to see if they could launch something similar. Flood said the managers at that location were eager to develop a special milkshake for Catholic University.

Campus Ministry staff members were invited to Potbelly earlier this summer for a milkshake taste test. They settled on a strawberry-Oreo-flavored shake.

“This milkshake is a way to expand the papal visit to those outside the Catholic University community,” said Flood. “We wanted people from Brookland and other nearby neighborhoods to feel like they could experience a little bit of the visit in a unique way.”

Campus Ministry is also selling #WalkwithFrancis T-shirts to benefit mission trips. For more information about Campus Ministry and its mission trips, contact email hidden; JavaScript is required.
