  • The Radical History of the Catholic Worker Community In Parkdale

    September 19, 2019  6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
    5 Close Ave Toronto ON M6K 2V2

    Join us for a peoples history event recounting the radical story of Parkdale’s Catholic Worker Community.

    Founded in 1990, the former Toronto Catholic Worker community moved into Parkdale in 1993 where it remained until its dissolution in 2010. At its height, the community included about thirty people living in six households located at the bottom of Close Avenue.

    The Catholic Worker is an anarchist pacifist movement inspired by Catholic social teaching that envisions a grass-roots social revolution proceeding from individual and collective action for the common good; a new society built on the shell of the old where it is easier to be good. It began in New York in 1933 and now encompasses some 200 communities, most of them in the United States.

    The Toronto Catholic Worker was anchored by the Zacchaeus House, a house of hospitalist that welcomed people in need of housing. Over the course of its 20 year history, Zacchaeus House welcomed and supported several hundred people offering both long and short-term family-style community housing. In addition to this the work of hospitalist, the community also ran a bakery, a cooperative sawmill and attempted to establish a land trust.

    Join us to learn more about this inspiring community.

    Soup will be served.

    Speakers - Jim Loney, Richard Marshal and more.

  • Parkdale Wellness Drop-In

    September 20, 2019  1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
    Parkdale Activity Recreation Centre 1499 Queen St W Toronto ON M6R 1A3

    The Parkdale Wellness Drop-In is a weekly community-led drop-in space for peer feminist counselling support and resources. The space aims to fill the need for culturally relevant services that can overcome the stigma attached to mental health in diasporic and racialized communities to allow for community healing and learning. Through accessible workshops and resources, the space also aims to address a lack of knowledge and support around mental health and trauma as an underlying issue for recovery. With the rise of crises in the City, we as a community need to build alternatives to institutional interventions through community-based resilience.

    The Drop-In is run by the Parkdale Women's Leadership Group, a collective of women of colour from Parkdale who aim to take action on human rights and justice through collective healing.

    The Drop-In is held every Friday from 1-4PM at PARC (1499 Queen St W) on the second floor. The building is wheelchair accessible and has a gender neutral and accessible washroom. Each workshop will provide free food, tokens, and childminding support. Translation services can be provided upon request. Please note that the space aims to centre racialized women, trans, and nonbinary community members.
