Join Maryknoll at Bethlehem Farm, a Catholic community in Appalachia that transforms lives through service in the local community and the teaching of sustainable practices. Bethlehem Farm revolves around the cornerstones of Community, Prayer, Simplicity, and Service. We live a lifestyle of intentional simplicity.
While we are on the Farm we will:

Wake up early, work hard, and go to bed with that "good-tired" feeling every night.
Discern how we are invited to truly care for God's creation through global solidarity.
Learn from the people of Appalachia
Experience ways of practicing and living a sustainable lifestyle
Explore your role in caring for creation while befriending donkeys, cats and chickens.
Reflect upon the beauty of God's creation on the Bethlehem Farm in WV and dig deeper into spirituality and the meaning of life.
Pray, meditate and reflect daily together as a community, including reflections on Laudato Si .
Discern how the Spirit is inviting you to integrate care for creation in your spirituality as a missionary disciple.
Have fun and build relationships.
