We are part of the "Catholic Worker Movement", a non-proselytizing social movement that respects the diversity of people and beliefs, responding to the needs of the environment in service to others, in unity and in contact with the earth and nature.
The movement began in New York in 1933.
Founded by Dorothy Day, journalist and radical activist speaking to Catholicism and Peter Maurin from a peasant family in France.
They opened their first house of hospitality as a response of solidarity arising from the needs of the war and the "Great Depression" in the United States.
Both proposed the experience of works of mercy and sustainable agricultural communities, giving importance to manual work and Christian personalism, a communitarian philosophy where we are all responsible for everyone and the world in which we live.
