St. Martin de Porres is a Catholic Worker community located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. There is currently only one community member here and he is planning on applying to religious life with the hopes of beginning in the summer of 2024. Therefore, the community is seeking at least one new community member to come, be trained, and take over the operation.
The house offers rooms to a few individuals who are seeking housing. Additionally, the community takes on a responsibility to provide labor at the Saint Francis soup kitchen across the street and also for maintaining a community garden. The house accepts donations (socks, underwear, toiletries, housing essentials, etc.) and hands them out to neighbors in need. The Harrisburg CW does not have a publication but does occasionally post articles on this website. There is not a scheduled evening for round-table discussions but the community hopes to begin those soon.
The St. Martin de Porres Catholic Worker has a close relationship with education non-profit, The Joshua Group, across the street. Interested community members would have the opportunity to apply for a part-time position there.
