Short film about Net of Compassion: “Bread of Life”

posted by Mike on November 13th, 2019

Here’s some beautiful people and a tough side of the city.

Net of Compassion – Bread of Life from Votary Films on Vimeo.

Richie, Elizabeth, and their whole “Net of Compassion” crew do some amazing work, most visibly offering services in a series of tents along Worcester’s Main Street each Saturday. They also collaborate on “Hotel Grace,” turning the basement of St. John’s Church into a 50-bed homeless shelter any night the temperature in Worcester is expected to drop below freezing. And they are looking to do more. If you are curious about helping the down-and-out in our city, getting involved with Net of Compassion is a great way to start.
