Live-in Volunteer Opportunity: Wallyhouse, Honolulu, Hawai’i

Live-in Volunteer Opportunity: Wallyhouse, Honolulu, Hawai’i

We are looking for one or two people to join Wallyhouse, a Catholic Worker
community that welcomes volunteers dedicated to the spiritual and corporal works of
mercy. Wallyhouse is the only CW house of hospitality in Hawaii. It is located in the
former rectory of St Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church, surrounded by public housing and a
number of homeless folks living in tents.

Casa de Clara Catholic Worker: Positions Available

Casa de Clara Catholic Worker: Positions Available

Casa de Clara Catholic Worker, located in beautiful San Jose, CA, has two positions open for workers who are looking to help us rebuild. We shut down in 2021 due to Covid and the need to do a rash of renovations to our house but we’re trying to get started again. We love to have your help. The need in San Jose is great as we have a burgeoning homeless population and an ever-increasing wealth gap.

The Works of Mercy: An Antidote to the Mercilessness of the Day

The Works of Mercy: An Antidote to the Mercilessness of the Day

“With the passing years, I have come to see our work of hospitality at the Catholic Worker – this doing the works of mercy – as an ever-available antidote to despair, a practical pushback against the mercilessness of the day. A welcoming cup of coffee and pot of soup are tools for defying the trench mentality that sets in when belief in goodness wanes.” Claire Schaeffer-Duffy, a member of SS. Francis and Therese Catholic Worker in Worcester, Massachusetts, reflects on the Works of Mercy in a talk she gave at the 2022 Catholic Worker Gathering.
