We bought a house!


The St. Louis Catholic Worker bought a house! After weeks of delay, we finally got the keys today!

The building is big and beautiful, with a good yard for a Catholic Worker garden. It was built in 1904 and has a few imperfections (don't we all) but we'll be able to start moving in immediately as we make higher need repairs.

We’ve been overwhelmed by all the love and support that our local support community and the broader Catholic Worker movement has shown us. Thanks to all those who have sent prayers and financial resources our way. Folks have been more generous than we could have imagined and we were able to put down a decent sized down payment. We hope support will continue as we begin having regular monthly bills, mortgage payments, and other expenses related to performing the works of mercy.

We have already started collecting gently used household items to furnish the place (we own almost nothing.) You can check out this list of needs and let us know if you have anything to share.

We can hardly wait to start offering hospitality!

Yours in Love,
Chrissy, Lindsey, and Theo


If you find yourself in abundance financially and would like to share to help us prepare our new house of hospitality you can:

- send a check to our new home at 8617 Mora Ln. St. Louis, MO 63147 made out to: STL Catholic Worker Community
- send Theo a gift on venmo or PayPal: @TheoKayser

 In alignment with traditional Catholic Worker philosophy, the STL Catholic Worker Community is not a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Read Dorothy Day on the topic in her 1971 article We Go On Record: CW Refuses Tax Exemption.

I know someone with nowhere to stay.”  “I wish the Catholic Worker in St. Louis was up and running, I’m aware of a mother and daughter in need of housing for a few nights.”  Ever since we announced our plans to open a new Catholic Worker house in the St. Louis area we’ve received inquiries like these.   We live in a world where a handful of billionaires control as much wealth as 4 billion people and so people go without housing, without food and water, without healthcare. People die.  In our own city those without housing have slept on the very doorstep of city hall, until they were unceremoniously evicted. Our city government mirrors that of
