Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of  
these who are members of my family, you did it to me.

Dear Catholic Worker House Friends, Volunteers and Supporters,

First of all THANK YOU for all that you do for our community and our wonderful guests! I am writing you to invite you to join Oblate's new Forest Dwelling Program. Many of you are approaching, or already are well into, your second half of life. This may be the program you are seeking for this period of your life and I urge you to read the attached flier. Some of you have been dwelling in a spiritual forest for quite some time ... you may wish to join other seekers with similar yearnings. It promises to be a very deep encounter with the Divine.

"We lack a developed spirituality for the second-half of life. Our churches and theological circles have too little to offer in terms of spiritual guidance for us as we move beyond our youthful years, especially as this pertains to aging and moving towards death. Setting itself within the archetypal image of Forest-Dwelling wherein spiritual seekers withdraw into the deep forest to live there and be instructed by the Elders, this 2-year program will draw on scripture, the mystics, select spiritual writers, and the best in secular literature to offer some spiritual and psychological counsel for our wisdom years."

Come and visit the Catholic Worker House. We will be happy to show you around (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 8:00am to 1:30pm and Limited Services on Fridays). Visiting is always a good way to find out more about what we do, and is a good chance to meet some of the folks from the local community who have come in to enjoy a meal with us.
