"...why the things are what they are, how the things would be if they were as they should be, and how a path can be made from the things as they are to the things as they should be."
Where do we come from? And where are we going? Join us as we examine our roots, consider lessons learned, share our own insights. More info. . .
We will gather virtually one Sunday each month for a 90-minute roundtable discussion with presentations to stay rooted in our history followed by small group breakouts to share the specific wisdom we each have gained from living out our work.
On May 1, 1933, in the depths of the Great Depression, The Catholic Worker newspaper made its debut with a first issue of twenty-five hundred copies. Dorothy Day and a few others hawked the paper in Union Square for a penny a copy (still the price) to passersby.
Today 187 Catholic Worker communities remain committed to nonviolence, voluntary poverty, prayer, and hospitality for the homeless, exiled, hungry, and forsaken. Catholic Workers continue to protest injustice, war, racism, and violence of all forms.
Explore the life and writings of Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin.
Discover what Catholic Worker communities worldwide are doing today to fulfill Dorothy and Peter's vision. It is a fascinating story.
