HOUSE NEWS: Need ribbons, prayer time change, JustFaith begins!
It was a good and busy week at the GCW and we’re thankful to all of you who could join us for the various goings-on. From all the folks who gathered for football on Saturday to everyone who dined and helped at Dorothy’s Cafe on Wednesday, from the opening gathering of knitters on Monday to the crafters and artists who filled the dining room on Saturday–we’re so excited to have a full schedule, so much going on and so many helping out. Special thanks this past week to Karen, Linda, Jan and Alan for the food used for the football game party!
ART FOR ALL NEEDS RIBBONS: Kelli asked me to write and ask folks to donate ribbons (full ribbons, bits of ribbons) for an upcoming project. You can drop the ribbons off anytime.
SLIGHT TIME CHANGE FOR FRIDAY PRAYER: If you ever do Breakfast Brigade, or want to start your day off reflecting with others, feel free to join us on Friday mornings at 6:45am (note the slight change; we’re doing it right after Brigade and we’ve been getting done closer to 6:45) for a half-hour of reflection, discussion and centering prayer.
JUSTFAITH PROGRAM BEGINS: This Tuesday we start the JustFaith program at the house. If you want to learn more about JustFaith, click here. Classes have been offered the past two years in Gainesville through Catholic Charities. We have a group of about 12 doing the program this year. (Registration is closed…)
ACT IN SUPPORT OF FARMWORKERS: Earlier this week we received word from our friends in Immokalee about the latest campaign to achieve justice for farmworkers in our state. Click here to see an action alert about what you can do.
Hope some of you will join us this week to volunteer or just say hello. If you can help with Brigade or Cafe, drop us an email and let us know you’ll be there!
