We are an intentional Christian community living in the former convent at St. James the Less Catholic Church in Columbus, with many community members also living off site. We are newly moved in as of January 2009. Our ministries are evolving but so far include the following: We pray regularly together as a community. We offer our 20-bedroom facility for retreats and workshops. We started offering fee meals to the community and regularly host a Hispanic legal clinic. Plans are underway for ESL classes, community garden, and hospitality for the homeless. Our community has been involved in activism against the death penalty. We share a building with a food pantry of the St. Vincent de Paul Society and are looking for ways to add more services such as hot meals, clothing distribution, free store, etc. We are eager to offer hospitality to traveling Catholic Workers and activists.

Volunteers needed:
We are excited to welcome others as either full or part-time Workers, including those who want to live with us in community. We welcome your input in either developing new ministries or supporting the ones we currently have! Come talk to us!
