The Catholic Worker Movement was founded by the “Servant of God” Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin in 1933. Its aim is to “live in accordance with the justice and charity of Jesus Christ.”
One of its guiding principles is hospitality towards those on the margin of society. There are over 185 local Catholic Worker communities providing social services, each with its own mission, goals and means, following the rules of mercy, sacrifice, community and a sense of reverence. St. Francis—St. Joseph House has as its mission to provide temporary housing for 15 men for up to 90 days.
God meant things to be much easier than we have made them.
We want to build a society where it is easier for people to be good.
