Redwood City Catholic Worker House

Redwood City Catholic Worker House

Larry Purcell. Sanctuary to troubled teens; language school for immigrants to learn English; food and furniture program; housing for twelve day laborers.

The Catholic Worker House in Redwood City began in 1975.  At our home we try to make sense out of everyday life and the Gospels. No one is paid to work here, and no one is charged anything to stay here. Following the example of Jesus, St. Francis, Dorothy Day and others, we have tried to share our lives and love with the poor because we are all sisters and brothers in the family of God.  With God’s grace and the generosity of many many supporters, we live like kings and have become a bridge between the critical needs of the very poor and the phenomenal wealth of the community surrounding us. We try to be go-givers rather than go-getters.
