HOUSE NEWS: Need some new volunteers and looking for folks to live here for Fall 2013
LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD VOLUNTEERS: As the semester starts to wind down for students at UF and Santa Fe, we’ll be in need of some new regular volunteers starting this month and running through June. We’re hoping to continue as many of our projects as we can through the months of May and June, but we’ll need your help. If you think you can help out one day a week for Breakfast@theGreenHouse or Wednesday’s cafe in the morning or afternoon or Thursday morning at the microfarm, we’d love to have you! Just send us an email and we’ll plug you in starting this month or next…
INTERESTED IN LIVING AT THE GAINESVILLE CATHOLIC WORKER FOR A SEMESTER? Each semester, we accept 3-6 students, recent grads, and other aduts who are interested in exploring life and work in a gospel-based community, standing with and working alongside people whom our society marginalizes, and deepening one’s sense of the intersection between spirituality and social justice. The GCW Semester gives individuals the opportunity to experiment with and practice a life of simplicity, solidarity, service, community, spirituality and more. It is a “total immersion” engagement in the life and work of the GCW. If you or someone you know might be interested in living and working with us for the Fall 2013 semester, we’d love to share information and talk. Email us and we’ll send some information to look through and set up a time to meet.
