John Paul II Catholic Worker Farm

The JPII Catholic Worker Farm is located in east Kansas City, Missouri (in the Blue Valley neighborhood). We are committed to growth—both through working together and helping our neighbors. Our mission is fourfold, to build a modern homestead, to foster organic community, to study and disseminate Catholic Social Teaching, and to pursue a life of holiness. We strive to work with and not against the land to revitalize ourselves and our neighborhood in the truest sense of the word. We strive to follow Pope St. John Paul II’s admonitions to “open wide the doors to Christ” and to “cast out into the deep,” hoping to help build a more just social order.
