Help out our home community

The Our Lady of Guadalupe Tonantzin Community was ‘born’ at the Vancouver Catholic Worker community in East Vancouver. It’s the location where we usually hold our feast day liturgies with a potluck meal.  They’ve been offering hospitality to folks who need a place to stay for 19 years. The house is over 100 years old and they’ve been renovating it to create a cleaner, more energy efficient home and community space for everyone to use for years to come. So much good work has been completed but they’ve run out of funds to finish the project. Help them reach the finish line.

Please visit this link to their website  Vancouver Catholic Worker – Donate – Build Community and consider donating to help out and spread the word.
