Phone 812-339-4456
Email lertmer [at] gmail [dot] com
Address 821 N. Blair Avenue
Bloomington, IN 47404
Description

The Bloomington Catholic Worker is a community in the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement. The Catholic Worker movement lives the vision of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin, who believed that a peaceable revolution would result if people imitated Jesus Christ's nonviolence, voluntary poverty, and radical hospitality. The BCW/CR is an ecumenical Christian intentional community that tries to live, pray and work both with each other and with the poor we encounter.

 

The BCW/CR is completely autonomous and has no institutional connection to the Roman Catholic Church. We try to offer housing, food, clothing and love to people facing homelessness. We perform the works of mercy and nonviolently oppose the works of war. We strive to practice the Sermon on the Mount, community living, voluntary poverty, personalism, and care for the environment.

 

We host a potluck every Thursday evening from 5:30 - 7:30 pm that is open to all who may be interested in our mission or in need of a meal. You may also call to make arrangements to join us for dinner any other night of the week.
