UPDATE: November 13
Thanks for all the great help last week–Dave’s Roundtable discussion, the great group from St. Anastasia for Dorothy’s Cafe, Wednesday Night Live folks, et al! This semester has really been going great and we are really thankful to all of you who consider yourselves part of our extended family.
Last week, Dave Chynoweth, who many of you know from the Breakfast Brigade and the Roundtable, lost his mother. This Thursday, in lieu of our regular roundtable, members of the GCW will be attending Dave’s mom’s wake at Holy Faith Catholic Church. For those of you who want to show your support of Dave, more info is available below. And his email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
And Happy Birthday to Holly! Holly, a member of our community here at the house and a participant in the Metanoia Semester, celebrates her b-day this Thursday!
Last chance for Metanoia Semester in the spring! Any of you who may be interested in or feel called to living at the Gainesville Catholic Worker House for the Spring 2008 semester, January thru April 2008, please contact us by the end of this week. We had 5 people join us this semester for Metanoia, and we think we’ll have a few spots open in the spring for 2-4 new people to join us. To read more about the Metanoia Semester, click here. If you are interested, contact Johnny at email@example.com or by phone at 219-8419 as soon as possible. The deadline for applying is Friday, November 16 and we’ll let folks know if we have room by Tuesday, November 20.
Here’s what is going on this week at the house:
Join us for a simple vegetarian dinner Tuesday thru Friday, 6pm.
TUESDAY – Scripture Study, 6-7:30pm. We’re studying the book of Exodus–oppression, revolution, liberation–all that good stuff. Click here to read a little summary of what we’ve been studying so far. We share a simple meal just before we study so feel free to come hungry or even bring something to share.
WEDNESDAY – Morning prayer at the GCW, 7:15-45am. Join us for a simple, reflective morning prayer each Wednesday at the house. Johnny leads this week’s reflection.
THURSDAY – NO Roundtable discussion and dinner. Instead, several of us will be attending Dave Chynoweth’s mother’s wake at Holy Faith Church, with visitation at 6 PM and prayers and sharing at 7. The Funeral Mass will be at 9:30 AM on Friday, Nov. 16, also at Holy Faith.
FRIDAY – Breakfast Brigade, 4:15-7am. Join us in preparing a homemade breakfast of fresh-baked cinnamon-raisin bread, hard-boiled eggs, and fresh fruit, which we share with our friends at three area labor pools. (Also on Tuesday mornings.)
SUNDAY – Dorothy’s Cafe. Holy Faith Catholic Church’s confirmation group and the Knights of Columbus will be preparing the food this week and bringing volunteers. We can usually use a little extra fresh, in-season fruit (the citrus crop has started to roll in), and a few extra volunteers, anytime between 2-7:30pm: 2-4pm is set-up; serving between 4-6pm; and clean-up from 5:30-7:30pm. Join us if you can!
