The Catholic Worker

In the 1930’s, Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin began a movement that combined Catholic traditions, the new papal social encyclicals with a commitment to live out the Corporal Works of Mercy in a spirit of voluntary poverty.

Today, that tradition continues in many cities in our country and around the world. Some of the most thought provoking writings about living as a disciples of Jesus and walking in his path are coming from these communities.

As part of the Catholic – Labor Network, we dedicate this page to the writings of our brothers and sisters of the Catholic Worker Movement.
