  • Bp. Barron's Lent Reflections

    • Wednesday, February 28, 2024
      by Bishop Robert Barron
      Friends, the Father has prepared the place for one who will reign with Jesus when he comes into his glory.
  • Today's Readings

  • Our ministry is attracting more and more souls who are benefitting from our work on the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm and from the Gaudium et Spes 22 blog. We are hoping to raise $15,000.00 to cover our 2024 expenses. This is our first big fundraising attempt as a non-profit organization. We hope you can help us make it a success!

    We've met our goal! 


  • The greatest challenge of the day is: how to bring about a revolution of the heart, a revolution that has to start with each one of us.
     

    Dorothy Day

  • The Dorothy Day Catholic Worker Farm is part of the Catholic Worker Movement founded by Dorothy Day and Peter Maurin during the Great Depression. 

    We are an 11-acre homestead raising a variety of crops and livestock. 



  • It is in fact impossible
    for any culture
    to be sound and healthy
    without a proper regard
    for the soil,
    no matter how many urban dwellers
    think that their food
    comes from groceries
    and delicatessens
    or their milk from tin cans. 
       

    from Regard For The Soil
    An Easy Essay by Peter Maurin

  • We started the farm with the simple goal of growing food for the poor, but our mission quickly grew well beyond that.  Our open-farm policy welcomes anyone to participate in our work and to learn homesteading skills. The farm is the place where we put into action the faith that we hold so dear.  

    As Catholic theologians, we take particular interest in the theological and philosophical roots of the Catholic Worker Movement. Our blog, Gaudium et Spes 22, explores the theology that movitates us.
