  • Experience with spiritual direction or counseling and knowledge of Ignatian Spirituality

  • monthly stipend of $500
  • all food, housing, and transportation
  • a generous self-care allowance including counseling and retreats
  • access to classes at nearby Xavier University

Lydia’s House distinguishes itself from traditional homeless shelters by its commitment to providing a rich community life of sharing dinners daily, recreational outings, and friendship, for current and previous guests. Lydia’s House is a home of hospitality in the Catholic Worker tradition.
