Potluck & Prayer Schedule

Potluck and Prayer is cancelled for tomorrow, Friday May 22nd.

Currently, we have Potluck & Prayer scheduled for every Friday evening. We have had wonderful times of prayer, roundtable discussion and fellowship on Fridays since we began this ministry 4 months ago. There have been meditative Taize services, regular Evening Prayer, discussions on the School of the Americas, Right-to-Life and other topics in between. However, it is difficult to maintain a regular weekly commitment. In addition, some people who have not been able to attend have suggested that another day of the week would be better. There are also anti-death penalty vigils on Fridays that we currently cannot attend.

We are open to suggestions--maybe having this once or twice a month rather than weekly is more feasible? We definitely would like others who don't live at the Catholic Worker house to lead either the prayer or discussions. While we have had guests drop in on virtually every Friday, we do not have a large enough group to feel comfortable having some of us live-in members sit out if our schedules demand it. We thought that the regularity of a weekly event would build momentum and familiarity, but maybe we should just schedule these as we can and make an announcement rather than have a set date/time.

Please bear with us as we try to find a schedule that works well. Even more importantly, please join us in discerning as we would love to have the involvement of a larger group of people in this. If you would like to lead prayer and/or a roundtable discussion, please come forward! In addition, if there is another day or time that works better than Friday evenings, please let us know! Prayer and roundtable discussion are very important to our community life and mission.
