HOLY WEEK FAITH AND RESISTANCE RETREAT

Dear Friends,
Due to the fact that our regular monthly Clarification of Thought talk falls on Good Friday, there will not be a program at the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker on April 3. We do, however, invite you to participate in the Holy Week Faith and Resistance Retreat that the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker and Jonah House are hosting. For more information about the Retreat please see the below announcement.
If you would like a schedule for the retreat please notify Art Laffin: artlaffin@hotmail.com.
With gratitude,
The Dorothy Day Catholic Worker

The retreat will begin at 10:00 a.m. on April 2, Holy Thursday and conclude on Good Friday following a nonviolent witness at the White House from 12 Noon -1:00 p.m. which will focus on contemporary crucifixion’s taking place in our world today. There will also be a Pentagon witness early on Good Friday.
