The Denver Catholic Worker Community
In July 2018, we celebrated 40 years of Catholic Worker Hospitality in Denver. Since July 1978, we have welcomed hundreds of people experiencing homelessness into our home and community.
In the early morning hours of January 24, 2016, our home of 38 years burned. Fortunately, all 12 residents were safe, but our central house of hospitality was gone. For two years, we were a dispersed community, offering limited hospitality in some homes, and meeting weekly for prayer and monthly for meals and discernment.
On July 2, 2018, we purchased a four-bedroom house within the half block of Emmaus Housing, a small non-profit low-income housing organization that was founded by a group of Catholic Worker-related folks in Five Points in 1999. We renovated the house in partnership with volunteers from Ave Maria Parish.
40+ years after our founding, we are almost ready to open the doors of this new house to 40 more years of Catholic Worker Hospitality.
