I hope this the best place to put this thread.
Anyways, we have been doing some investigation into living “off the grid” and have found it to be a somewhat daunting task to convert a regular house into a self-sufficient one. This got us looking into off-grid communities that cater to this lifestyle. However, every community we’ve found is from the “non-religious” and “free thinking” types, and this just doesn’t fit with our families’ faith (we take the Faith seriously). The one Catholic website I did find, rosariansofthepoorchrist.blogspot.com/, does have the idea of what we’re looking for, although it seems to be focused on creating a religious society built on farming. The idea sounds intriguing, but I don’t know that we are being called to be part of an actual religious society like this. So it got me thinking that there must be other practicing Catholics out there who are thinking along the same lines as us. Does anyone know of something like this or is anyone thinking in that direction? My intention by starting this thread is to try to generate some good sources of information for us and anyone else interested. Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
