Volunteer

St Isidore Catholic Worker Farm is a group of Lay Catholics who study and live the social teachings of the Catholic Church in their daily lives through the guidelines set down by Catholic Worker Movement founders Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin.  We welcome practicing catholic volunteers to St Isidore Catholic Worker Farm.

There are several areas that one may volunteer at St Isidore CW Farm; Farm Work and Permaculture Study/Practice, Catholic Worker Roundtable Discussions, Comfort the Sorrowing Works of Mercy (Grief Retreats) and Development of Farm Newsletter

1. St Isidore CW Farm is an environment with structured living that combines solitude with community, farm work with creativity and prayer with study. It is our desire to make St Isidore farm a place of study and practice of good animal husbandry and permaculture.

2. St Isidore Catholic Worker Farm sponsors roundtable discussions where experts on various justice topics share their education, experiences and insights with the community, and then lead open discussions on these issues. We are looking for facilitators to lead roundtable discussions on topics such as nonviolent communication, sustainable living, the environment, etc. If you have a justice topic that might make a good roundtable and you are passionate about presenting it, contact Ellen Piper at 208.850-4398.

3.  St Isidore Catholic Worker Farm members perform “the corporal and spiritual works of mercy.” Our current focus is Comfort the Sorrowing Works of Mercy. Specifically, we are hosting small group and individual weekend Grief Retreats.

4. St Isidore Catholic Worker Farm is developing a newsletter covering farm news and updates. We need catholic worker journalists with a passion for Laudato Si’ On Caring for Our Common Home.
