Help start a Catholic Worker in St. Louis!

Donation protected
"Have you found a place yet? 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.

This holiday season we are trying to gather money for a down payment on a house. Interest rates are high and the more money we raise the less burdened we will be by a loan.

What we hope to do with this home:
- hospitality: house folks the system fails (unhoused, low income, folks needing a few nights etc)
- a hub for activism & mutual aid; bringing out a revolution of the heart
- community space to foster community in our region

Please help this dream of a new Catholic Worker house of hospitality a reality!

The StL CWs are:
-Chrissy Kirchhoefer is formerly of the KabatHouse and Columbia, Missouri CWs and works as outreach consultant to the National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee.
-Lindsey Myers is an alumni of the Phoenix CW and Strangers and Guests CW Farm who works at Assisi House where she helps support formerly unhoused folks. She currently lives in the Sophia House community.
-Theo Kayser has lived at the Los Angeles, Cherith Brook, and Karen House CW communities. He also co-hosts the Coffee with Catholic Workers podcast and has traveled extensively throughout the movement.
