The Corporal & Spiritual Works of Mercy
The Appalachian Catholic Worker believes in Peter Maurin’s concept of “personalism.”
We are the keepers of our brothers and sisters. We make ourselves personally available for opportunities to perform the works of mercy, and intentionally “fill in the gaps” when other people, organizations and agencies are either unwilling or unable to do so. However, any of the random favors we do, services we provide, and help we give in town or in the hollers, only resemble and reflect those which we receive on a daily basis -in gracious abundance- from our neighbors, furry friends and the land itself. So, the purpose of ACW’s Outreach ministries is to serve those in need...in the context of ALL God’s Creation… People, Pets and Places!
