Nov/Dec 2007 NYC Friday Meetings

This entry is being written on November 3, 2007 and I just received my Aug/Sept 2007 issue of the Catholic Worker a few days ago. Look for a full digest in the next week or so. Because I know I have several readers in the New York City area, I wanted to point out the CW Friday Night Meetings while that information is still useful.

All meetings begin at 7:45pm:

Nov 9 – Anna Brown: Etty Hillesum–The Language of the Incandescent Heart
Nov 16 – Marie Ponsot and Lawrence Joseph: Poetry against nonviolence
Nov 23 – No Meeting. Happy Thanksgiving!
Nov 30 – Alice Hendrickson: A Year in Southeast Turkey Among the Kurds*
Dec 7 – Anthony Giacchino’s film – The Camden 28
Dec 14 – A Conversation with the NYC New Sanctuary Movement.*
Dec 21 – Annual Christmas Party — Please Join Us!
Dec 28 – No Meeting–Happy New Year!

Why the meetings? I’ll let the Worker itself explain:

In keeping with Peter Maurin’s recognition of the need for ongoing
clarification of thought, we invite you to join us for our weekly Friday night
meetings. The meetings are held either at Maryhouse–55 East Third St,
212-777-9617, or St. Joseph House, 36 East First St, 212-254-1640. As far ahead
as we can see, those we will hold at First Street will be marked with an *. Feel
welcome to call and confirm the schedule. Both houses are between First and
Second Avenues (2nd Ave. stop on the F or V train).

So, if you’re within driving distance of New York, please attend if you can. If you do, would you leave a comment here or send an e-mail to dnlcornwall AT
