There is a sense that part of retreating at Hollis can include doing a service projects. We welcome your active support of Hollis through volunteer efforts. In that, work and spirituality are intertwined. We’re always looking for skilled, insightful volunteers for such administrative opportunities as serving on our board or participating in committees and task groups.

The Thursday Volunteer crew meets every week as a facet of Hollis Community. There is plenty of work to be done and we share a meal together at noon. The Thursday morning team works hard on challenging on-going maintenance and capital improvements. After the work is done, the spirit of community at Hollis is shared with a mid-day meal where workers get a chance to relax and share fellowship. Bring a hardy work spirit and appetite, and the rest will be provided. A Saturday Volunteer crew is also getting started. They continue the work on Thursdays but they also work with the many groups that volunteer at Hollis on the weekends. Contact Hollis if your group would like to volunteer.
There are three principles to the Thursday Volunteer Community:
