HOUSE NEWS: Pizzas needed for Wednesday Cafe! And photos from Advent Party…
PIZZAS NEEDED FOR WEDNESDAY’S CAFE: So far we only have about 10 pizzas promised for the cafe on Wednesday (that includes the minimum 6 we make here at the house). If you can make a homemade pizza or buy one from one of our local pizzerias (Big Lou’s, Satchel’s, Leonarado’s, Five Star, Italian Gator, Mamma Mia, etc.), we would be so grateful! It has become a tradition that we do homemade (or locally-made) pizzas for the last cafe of each semester. We typically serve between 20-25 pizzas, so we need A LOT of help securing enough pizza pies. Pizzas can be dropped off anytime between 11:30am and 1:30pm. So RSVP if you can bring a pizza pie for this Wednesday’s cafe, December 12, and let us know what time you’ll be dropping it off!
COMMUNITY PRAYER AND POTLUCK: This Sunday, December 16, from 4-7pm, we’ll be hosting a community prayer service and potluck here at the Gainesville Catholic Worker House. A small group of friends have been meeting once-a-month for an intimate, communal prayer service at various folks’ homes. We follow the prayer service with a potluck meal. Everyone is welcome to attend. We start to gather at 4pm, with prayer beginning at 4:30pm, and meal immediately following.
OUR TAMRA IS GETTING MARRIED! We’re so excited that Tamra Rich, a member of our community for the past 4-5 years, and a live-in member last year, will be getting married to a wonderful young man Ben Travers, who some of y’all may remember as our photographer for the GCW House Portrait project last year. They’re getting married on Friday, so we hope y’all will keep them in your prayers. If you want to leave notes for them, feel free to leave comments on the GCW Facebook page and we’ll be sure to direct Tamra and Ben to check out your comments!
ART FOR ALL ITEMS STILL FOR SALE: If you weren’t able to come last week or during the party to check out all the great gifts that were made at Art for All this year, you still have one more chance! Come by anytime between 1-5pm from now through Friday, or to the Community Prayer and Potluck on Sunday between 4-7pm. All of the items which are left are still on display and someone will be here during those times to assist you in anything you’d like to pick up as a gift for someone you love. Thanks for your support!
THANKS FOR THE HELP AT THE ADVENT PARTY: To everyone who could make it for the Advent Party on Saturday, we thank you! It was a grand affair with around 75-100 folks dropping by for music, treats, and to honor Dave and Gloria Chynoweth and Alphonso Clarke. Thanks to everyone who brought food! You can see the photos down below or click here to see them on Flickr.
HOUSE CLOSED BETWEEN DECEMBER 17 AND JANUARY 6: We’ll be on break from December 17 through Epiphany, January 6. No projects or ministries take place during that time. Looking forward to seeing you in the New Year!
