Join us for Offering Service Saturday
One Saturday per month volunteers come together to offer service to Sravasti Abbey. Service could include garden work, help in the forest, cleaning, or cooking — all skills and all levels of ability are welcomed.
There are plenty of indoor jobs too. Please come. These days are lots of fun!
Offering Service Saturdays are organized by local Friends of Sravasti Abbey supporters. Coordinators Sarah and Doug write,
“The idea is to strengthen the Abbey’s support community and, at the same time, take a bit of the workload off the shoulders of the nuns. We believe these monthly service opportunities will help us cultivate the qualities of goodness, virtue and generosity in our lives at home.”
Offering Service Saturdays dates for 2018:
- May 5
- June 2
- July 14
- August 18
- September 15
- October 6
- November 10
Service times are 9 am to 4 pm, including a vegetarian potluck lunch (no meat, onions, or garlic.) There’s an optional opportunity for meditation from 4:00-4:45 pm.
Write Sarah and Doug to know more and to sign up!
