Richard Barnard – Catholic Workers Group

S002-Richard-Barnard-278x300.jpg

Richard is a veganelical who, it seems, is much better at converting people to a nonviolent lifestyle rather than any belief in God! He lives in an intentional community and belongs to the Catholic worker tradition (radical anarchist/pacifist Christian community emanating from the States in the 1930’s and Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin). He has been a vegan for too long to remember and sees this as a spiritual practice in addition to a commitment to the way of non-violence that Jesus preached.

He works for a local charity working with homeless people and has previously been homeless and struggled with various addictions.
