Address 821 N. Blair Avenue
Bloomington, IN 47404
Description

The Bloomington Catholic Worker is a community in the tradition of the Catholic Worker movement. The Catholic Worker movement lives the vision of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin, who believed that a peaceable revolution would result if people imitated Jesus Christ's nonviolence, voluntary poverty, and radical hospitality. The BCW/CR is an ecumenical Christian intentional community that tries to live, pray and work both with each other and with the poor we encounter.

 

The BCW/CR is completely autonomous and has no institutional connection to the Roman Catholic Church. We try to offer housing, food, clothing and love to people facing homelessness. We perform the works of mercy and nonviolently oppose the works of war. We strive to practice the Sermon on the Mount, community living, voluntary poverty, personalism, and care for the environment.

 

We host a potluck every Thursday evening from 5:30 - 7:30 pm that is open to all who may be interested in our mission or in need of a meal. You may also call to make arrangements to join us for dinner any other night of the week.

Description

The Bloomington Rotary Club was chartered April 13, 1918. It was the seventh club established in what is now District 6580, and the 403rd in Rotary. A large delegation came from the sponsoring club in Indianapolis for the installation.

Since its origins in the spring of 1918, the Bloomington Rotary Club has worked steadily to serve the larger community both through its efforts as an organization and the leadership and stewardship of its members as individuals.

Members volunteer their efforts to improve the quality of life in their communities and beyond. Rotary clubs, which meet weekly, are nonpolitical, nonreligious and open to all cultures, races and creeds. Club membership represents a cross-section of local business and professional leaders. The organization’s motto is “Service Above Self.”
