An Ecumenical, Spiritual, and Charitable Community
A Given Day...
What does O.C.W. actually DO on a day-to-day basis?
On any given day, some or all of us might likely be:
Making calls in the year-long process of preparing the Annual Children's Christmas Party for hundreds of children... Offering guidance/counseling in person, on phone, or by email... Obtaining mental health services for a Companion... Playing with the many children in our community... Officiating at or attending a funeral... Visiting a local nursing facility... Buying someone gas or a new tire so they can get to work... Uniting/Blessing a couple in their life together... Baptizing a child... Interviewing an immigrant family about their needs... Speaking to a civic or religious group about the needs of the poor in our area... Being present at the hospital while a mother delivers her baby... Replacing a toilet or a door or a roof of someone's house... Sitting with an alcoholic or drug addict who's struggling through the possibility of recovery... Supervising a bunch of kids at the Community swimming pool... Celebrating Communion... Attending someone's court trial... Sitting with folks as they struggle through their life experiences... Mowing lawns, trimming bushes, raking leaves... Having a big birthday party for a child (of whatever age!) who's never really had one... Sharing office duties and chores... Encouraging someone in finding a job... Taking a child to the emergency room... Speaking at a local church or at a venue out-of-state... Worrying about due bills... Begging, continually... Doing and being in the midst of a hundred other blessings of our life together.
