Hospitality and Peacemaking

We are a house of hospitality and peacemaking. We welcome refugees and others with special needs and we take a spiritual stand for peacemaking. Our hospitality extends to people from foreign countries who are here for medical needs.


In the Catholic Worker tradition we hold peacemaking forums on current Issues. These forums are frequently co-sponsored with the Waukesha Peace Center and local churches. We also hold educational events in local churches and schools regarding the strengths and needs of our refugee guests.


The Waukesha catholic Worker is ecumenical and includes Jews, Muslims, Protestants, Hindus, Catholics, and others. Out of our deep faith each of us brings life to the community.


The Waukesha catholic Worker holds periodic ecumenical worship services to deepen our bonds with God, each other, and our guests.


We offer respite for Catholic Workers from large cities, like Milwaukee or Washington, D.C., who need a rest from their demanding work.

Consider contacting the Waukesha catholic Worker Community to volunteer your time or to participate in their community life.
