Directory of Catholic Worker Communities

Catholic Workers live a simple lifestyle in community, serve the poor, and resist war and social injustice. Most are grounded in the Gospel, prayer, and the Catholic faith, although some houses on this list state that they are interfaith. Each Catholic Worker house is independent and there is no "Catholic Worker headquarters".

Income for Catholic Worker houses can come from outside jobs held by members or by cottage industries developed by the community, but most houses survive on donations. Every Catholic Worker house can use donations of money and/or specific items like food, clothing, etc...Most can also use volunteers from the surrounding community to help with the work. If you feel called to do something about poverty and homelessness in your community, your local Catholic Worker house would be a great place to start. This is a list of all the Catholic Worker communities that we know about, indexed by state or country.

Volunteers needed:

Our community provides emergency shelter to homeless women and children. We have been engaged in this ministry for over 30 years. Sadly we are among those CW houses that has experienced a loss of full-time, long-term community members in recent years, imperiling our mission of service to a few of the 7000 people homeless in our area.

Our greatest need is for those who wish to make this a way of life for several years or more. It is only with such folks that a community can thrive. We also accept short-term (6 ths -1 yr) members & some students over the summer,

Most of our scheduled work is in the mornings & evenings and on weekend days. It may be possible for community members to maintain a part-time job or take a class during the weekday.

Prior community living, volunteer experience, and understanding of the needs of homeless women are helpful. Needed skills include cooking, cleaning, house maintenance, gardening, newsletter production and community out-reach. A commitment to non-violence, simple living and a faith-based lifestyle are required. Please have an open-mind & heart , a sense of humor, & lots of flexibility.

St. Marcellus Catholic Worker Houses for Homeless Home Page

Our founder and resident director is 63 and has known of the Catholic Worker Movement since 1977 and has always hoped to buy a House to use as a CW House. He was finally been able to buy our first and only house so far, this St. Isidore CW Cottage, which is now full to capacity with two formerly homeless vets and two other formerly homeless men, and Tom. The House pays its expenses with Tom's Pension and, so far, with spot labor and donations. While we are open to persons of all faiths and no-faith, both to serve and to be helped, our inspiration and community prayer-life is Catholic. Our Catholic Diocese has gifted us the funds to be registered as a non-profit, so that the VA might stipend us a per-diem for every Vet to whom we provide a home in the CW tradition. Much of that per-diem we hope to use to subsidize wages to our residents to be employee-member-owners of our affiliated, for-profit workshop: Vets'-Green-Energy-Co-Ops, to install and maintain de-centralized heating, cooling, and electricity co-generating capacity at our and other CW Houses, and at FBC's (Faith-Based Communities) around the country.

Volunteers needed:
We seek distance-volunteers to open their homes to homeless vets -- of which there are 400,000 at any given time -- in revocable or irrevocable living trusts -- under our umbrella. Also, to help us compile contact information for FBCs in your part of the country, or at least, to order and to forward to us the current phone books from one or more cities in your State, so that we may compile such lists, to promote not only the St.MCW charism, but also the whole CW life-style, as well as de-centralized energy production and use, in the tradition of Peter Maurin's farming communes and workshops with Houses of Hospitality [Menu]

a Library of books and films in a House of Silence, which provides environment for inner work towards learning living, within ourselves, in deep communion with God; and then living it and acting it out as a way of Love. Repentance, prayer, Knowledge, healing. Simple, of old way, life in the House, and learning it. Also, variety of service to the victims of the system. The purpose of this House is to further the aims and goals of the Catholic Worker movement as expressed by Dorothy Day and, particularly, as expressed by Peter Maurin; to join in works and efforts of the newly established, in 2004, New Monasticism movement; please check NewMonasticism.org; to follow in footsteps of the Madonna Houses, founded by Catherine de Hueck Doherty, and as expressed by her in the book "Pustinia"; to learn about and draw from, and follow, the examples of the other deeply rooted in God spiritual/religious monastic or life communities like the ancient Essenes, the Bruderhof, or Amish and Hutterites; and, on the side of all those above combined, to form one unique small monastic community as a response to God's call toward all people for repentance and conversion, and then for living a way of love, which will bring fruits of truth, justice, and peace. The commitment and effort toward learning God's Law; and toward learning God's Ways; both as oppose to secular, that is "world's" law, and secular, that is "world's" ways; is the major goal and aim and purpose of this House. ...just established; still in process of organizing; official Open House date: December 8, 2009. In October 2009 we bought a small house in Dubuque, Iowa, and moved our library and household from Rockville, Maryland. We need donations to help with tremendous expenses we coped with; but also to begin our mission. To put the library up on shelves and to continue preparing the house we hope to be having already a person living with us; a person who is interested in the above described mission. We are waiting for contacts from you. Please call us to further inquire about the situation; and come and visit. We have no computer , therefore we are unable to check e-mail, so the best way for you is to call us. The address and phone number are: 725 Hennepin Street, Dubuque, Iowa, 52001; 563-583-6790.

We are an intentional community and house of hospitality in South Minneapolis.  We are inspired by peace movements including the Civil Rights Movement, the Catholic Worker Movement, and the Food Justice Movement.  Most of all, we are motivated by good conversations shared over meals and humble, challenging love.

Our Projects:

We have been cooking and serving meals at a street corner near our house on Thursday and Friday nights.  Our meals accompany a weekly event known as the Amen Corner put on by the Ventura Village Neighborhood Association (our neighborhood).  The Amen Corner is a two hour-long open mic meant to act as a space to foster positive change in our community.

We invest a lot of time and thought into gardening, home-based food production, and ethical food purchasing.  We raise chickens, do compost and vermiculture,  extend the harvest through canning, freezing, and preserving, and we try to either get food for free, grow it ourselves, or buy it local and organic.

We work with friends to plan roundtable discussions about topics that we believe to be positive and life-giving.  We have so far had roundtables on heterosexual privilege/transgender identities, racism within our American school system, and Catholic Womanpriests.

We also host people who are either homeless, refugees, or in a period of transition.

The four core community members also practice a common purse.  This means that we share the money we earn at jobs outside the house and pay for our needs collectively.

Trinity Hills Home Page

A house and farm for service, hospitality and lay formation.

No two Catholic Worker houses are the same. Trinity Hills is unique in being sponsored by a Catholic Diocese. Located on 114 acres of hills, forest, prairie and river-lands, our primary works are: the Liturgy of the Hours, Adoration, providing hospitality for homeless persons who are particular vulnerable, producing food for the hungry (11,000 eggs donated thus far), and running retreats for groups and families.

We teach and practice Care for Creation and "natural family farming" as we sometimes jokingly call it. We have a herd of ancient Jacob sheep as well as goats and chickens. Animals have been reduced to factory machinery by factory farming; our goal is to have animals that maintain their God-given nature while producing food for those we serve.

Volunteers needed:
We are always in need of volunteers and workers. [Menu]

At St. Joseph's House of Hospitality, the sources of our spirit and the direction are the teachings of Jesus and the founding work of Dorothy Day. Since 1941, we have been an independent, non-profit organization, sustained by the donations and financial contribution of individuals and groups. We accept no funds from the government. We are rooted in the belief that through God we are provided with our daily needs.

Consistent with the philosophy of the Catholic Worker Movement, we share our hope for a "new society," a new way of being with one another. People who come to this house are "guests," ambassadors of God. We attempt to form the community through commitment to the following:

  • Acceptance of the personal
  • Obligation of attending to the needs of our brothers and sisters
  • A daily practice of the works of mercy - feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, visiting the imprisoned, comforting the sorrowful
  • The practice of non-violent witness for peace and justice.

Volunteers needed:
Our Catholic Worker House of Hospitality serves a hot meal daily for about 100 people. We provide hospitality year round and winter emergency shelter. We are in need of full time, live-in staff. We can provide room, board and stipend. If interested contact: Tom Malthaner at PO Box 31049, Rochester NY 14603, or call the house: 585-232-3262, email: cathwork@frontiernet.net. [Menu]

We are a non-sectarian community, not based in prayer or religious doctrine, affiliated with the Catholic Worker movement through many years of personal association, and a deeply shared ethical and social vision. Our common purpose is to explore and demonstrate an ecologically sustainable way of life within a city, based on agricultural use of open land, and a simple common life to minimize our consumption of world resources. We also practice radical direct action for justice and peace, and use our houses and land for education about peacemaking and the nonviolent life we seek to develop.

We own four houses in an inner city Nashville neighborhood, with about an acre of arable land and housing for a total of seventeen community members. Each household is semi-autonomous. We welcome visits and inquiries from people who might be interested in joining us, or investing in similar land and houses that are available at very reasonable cost, nearby in our neighborhood. We also welcome visits from travelers interested in our vision and work.

Volunteers needed:
Occasional openings for long term community members or intern volunteers. As of 2010, weve begun looking for a young family, committed to similar ecological and social values, who would consider settling here permanently and becoming heirs to the land and vision of our community, as our founding members approach an age when they will want and need to pass on basic responsibility to others.

Publication: St. Francis Catholic Worker

The St. Francis Catholic Worker is a one-page, home-spun newsletter, offered free of charge, mailed faithfully February, May, August, and November to all who request a copy.

Born in Washington, DC in 1979 as a hospitality house for single adults, both male and female, we missioned and helped to start the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House for families. Several members of our community prayerfully became its core community in 1981. Experiencing a new call to service from Jesus we embraced a long held vision of a spiritual retreat center for folks living in shelters and transitional houses. Thus, in 1993 we moved to the above address and began hosting non-denominational, directed, group retreats (with the assistance of volunteer retreat directors). Our 12 bedroom retreat house and separate chapel with the Blessed Sacrament, located on a ten acre wooded property, is an oasis of love for our sisters and brothers who come.

Our community house, separate from the retreat house, has room for 5 people: 2 couples and a single person. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and quiet space. Simple living, in solidarity with the poor, requires much change from the average American lifestyle. Our wood burning fireplace gives winters warmth along with baseboard heat backup, used only as needed. Food bank shopping, limited use of community vehicle, Mass daily at our local parish are a few examples of our attempt at simple living. We are a mix of Martha and Mary: we meditate each day and we do laundry too.

Volunteers needed:

For our ministry of hospitality and love coupled with a retreat ministry for the homeless who are longing for a stronger connection to Christ. We seek a couple and a single person approximately between ages 45 and 65 to join our faith community and work with our retreatants. We look for willing hearts to make a long term commitment to engage in all aspects of life here -- from bookkeeping, letter writing, gardening, bed making, retreat direction and faith sharing with our guests, to community prayer and a little laughter.

We take seriously the command, "Come follow me" and because of that we live a faith fulfilled life.

HISTORICALLY SPEAKING

Peter Maurin and Dorothy Day often went on retreats, themselves. Dorothy wrote of her own retreat experiences and urged others to make retreats. "Food for the soul," she called them. Her writing clearly shows she envisioned Catholic Worker retreat houses --"... It is certainly a dream for the future." We are humbled to be part of the lying out of her dream.

Inquiries Welcome. Please contact John or Polly Mahoney, or Pumpkin, our cat, at the above address and phone.

PEACE -- PLEASE PRAY FOR US.

The Radish House is committed to acts of resistance against oppression. We specifically engage with trans and queer communities and discern the ways in which all forms of oppression intersect and affect those who are most marginalized within our churches and our communities. As a new house, we are still in the process of discernment but recognize that in order to serve the communities we want to serve, we feel this whole process should be done in community. We also recognize that the philosophy and mission work of our house will be dynamic and ever-changing and we want to start now, getting feedback from the community as we go along hopefully allowing everyone to grow.

The house is currently full but if you are a Trans or Queer person or ally in need of temporary accommodation contact us. Please note that there are animals (cat and dog) in the house as well as children.

Consider contacting Radish House to help with childcare, community living and solidarity and helping with community meals.

Casa Colibrí Home Page

We are a newly established community in rural Mexico, founded by former LACW community members. Casa Colibrí: We are an intentional community in the Catholic Worker tradition. Our projects include: a small organic farm; child, teen, and adult English classes; traditional folklorico dance classes; artistic and cultural workshops; round table discussions; prayer; and monthly in-house liturgies. In addition to our efforts to connect with and build community in the rural town of Hostotipaquillo, we are committed to maintaining our physical, emotional, and spiritual health. This we believe is essential to the Catholic Worker philosophy of ¨building a new society in the shell of the old.¨
