Corps members live together in intentional community of 4-6 people per household. During Orientation, the community is led through a process of forming a “Community Covenant” of how they intend to live together. Community life involves three weekly meals together, a weekly meeting of spiritual sharing, a weekly house business meeting, a monthly hospitality meal, and may include other structures as determined by the group. Community roles and responsibilities are determined by the group and may rotate throughout the year.
Three retreats throughout the year are designed to support community life and help it to flourish.
Intentional community living is counter-cultural. It challenges us to be compassionate to ourselves and to others. Corps members often point to intentional community living as the most transformative experience of the year.
