Catholic Worker Movement


Just what is a Catholic Worker?

A Catholic Worker is a community dedicated to living out the gospel call to serve and love our sisters and brothers.

The three pillars that compose the Catholic Worker are:

  • Prayer.
  • Clarification of thought, or social action.
  • Hospitality.

It seeks to create a community where people feel welcome and yet challenges all of us to live our lives “worthy of the call” of Christ.

It is ecumenical in focus so we invite other faith traditions to join us in this effort.
