Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month

By Meaghan Crowley

"What we would like to do is change the world— make it a little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended for them to do.” - Dorothy Day

The beginning of November marks the start of Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Month . This year, we have taken inspiration from Dorothy Day, and her book The Long Loneliness. Day was a starter. She was a connector. She was an activist. We hope to do the same. We want to start getting closer to the issues of Hunger and Homelessness, and start making the world a more just place. We want to connect with people from all walks of life, to get a clearer picture of their journeys through life. And we want to stand up against injustice through social activism. 

These goals are lofty to accomplish in a month. But our hope is that this can be an entry point. This experience of devoting a whole month to issues surrounding hunger and homelessness can inspire us to go deeper during the eleven other months out of the year; prayerfully accepting the challenges and beauty that come with living a life devoted to making this beautiful world we share a “little simpler for people to feed, clothe, and shelter themselves as God intended for them to do.”
