The House of Hagar

Catholic Worker

  Called to serve ? We have a variety of vocationships available throughout the year. Typically they are either 3 weeks, 6 weeks or 3 months.  While we try to create meaningful schedules individualized to each person, vocationships generally involve helping at the Catholic Worker, hosting community fellowship on Sunday, working with our neighbors experiencing homelessness and working with the organic Grow Ohio Valley Urban farm, greenhouse, mobile market or in their office or another area non-profit of interest. 
   Vocationships provide housing and food but they are not paid. They are a time to learn how to live in an intentional community (an active one!), hear God in both the land and the people, and a place to find sacred space in both the action of service and prayer. We have witnessed life long relationships develop through service to others. Usually our Vocationers discover that there are purposeful life changing moments, as well as moments that stretch a soul beyond normal comfort levels and into a deeper understanding of self.
